Our Litigation team is one of the cornerstones of the firm, initially established to provide litigation services to the insurance industry and its insureds. Today, our litigation practice spans the entire spectrum of individual and commercial litigation matters.
The areas in which our firm’s attorneys frequently litigate include insurance defense coverage, products liability, environmental, personal injury, employment law, commercial and financial institutions. Issues we frequently litigate include fraud, mass toxic torts, professional responsibility, partnership disputes, property damage, trusts and estates, title, environmental, subrogation and construction. We regularly appear in state and federal courts.
We are skilled in all aspects of litigation, including mediation and arbitration. Several of our attorneys have been designated as Certified Civil Trial Attorneys by the New Jersey Supreme Court Board on Attorney Certification. Many of our attorneys have served as guest speakers on instructive litigation panels through the New Jersey Supreme Court’s Continuing Legal Education Board.
Purcell, Mulcahy & Flanagan is experienced in handling all levels of federal and state court appeals. The hallmarks of our appellate practice are strong writing, sound reasoning and persuasive oral argument. Most of the members of our litigation team are former law review members and/or law clerks to appellate judges.
Our attorneys are admitted to the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania bars and are active in the Superior Court of New Jersey, United States District Court for the State of New Jersey, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.
