Syracuse Commercial Law Attorney Tackles Your Legal Challenges

Skillful advocate represents businesses throughout Central New York

In most cases, commercial law issues seem like unwelcome distractions to business owners who are focused on succeeding in a tough marketplace. At Kirwan Law Firm, P.C. in Syracuse, we help small and large businesses overcome obstacles and assert their rights while minimizing disruption to their daily operations. Having practiced in this field for more than 25 years, founding attorney Terry J. Kirwan, Jr. identifies and implements solutions that others miss and serves as trusted adviser and advocate to clients in all types of industries. Whether you’re looking to complete a transaction or protect yourself against commercial misconduct, or are dealing with an insurance issue, our firm will fight to achieve the result you seek.

Experienced legal adviser handles all types of contract matters

Creating fair, reliable contracts is an essential aspect of long-term business success. Attorney Terry Kirwan takes a personalized, detailed approach when assisting commercial clients with:

  • Contract preparation and review — We draft authoritative commercial contracts that safeguard our clients’ interests and clearly delineate each side’s rights and obligations. Likewise, we conduct painstaking reviews of contracts prepared by others.
  • Noncompete agreements — It’s important to protect your business from current or former employees who might be using your proprietary information or reputation against you. If you have concerns in this area, we know how to create and enforce sound noncompete agreements.
  • Breach of contract claims — When someone violates the terms of a contract with you or if you are being accused of a breach, we’ll take prompt action to pursue appropriate relief under the terms of the agreement or in court, if necessary.
  • Purchase and sale of businesses — Buying or selling a business is a complex process, and one mistake could cause serious harm. From the time you start considering a transaction through the closing, we perform due diligence and handle other elements of major deals using the highest professional standards.

Don’t be caught reacting to moves that other parties make. We make it easy to obtain counsel from a qualified attorney immediately by offering a free initial consultation.

Proven lawyer helps companies deal with real estate issues

Commercial real estate often involves complex transactions, leases and financial arrangements. No matter how intricate the details might be, our firm provides strong guidance to help you preserve the value of your investment and avoid unwarranted risks. We also deal with real estate disputes and situations that affect how you can use your property, such as disagreements over restrictive covenants.

Accomplished firm assists businesses with insurance matters

Whether the issue involves a general commercial liability policy, vehicle accident coverage or some other type of protection, insurance disputes can be costly to your business. Our firm analyzes complex policies and explains applicable laws to help you avoid unpleasant surprises when you make a claim. If you’ve been hit with an unjust coverage denial or seek representation on an insurance defense matter, we’ll assert your case against a carrier or adversary.

Respected advocate works to resolve commercial disputes favorably

Winning a favorable result in litigation, mediation or arbitration is always the goal, but an effective commercial litigator never overlooks how a dispute affects a client’s resources and reputation. Attorney Terry Kirwan is a tough advocate for businesses, with extensive trial experience over more than 25 years. In whatever forum works best, we vigorously seek appropriate relief through a verdict or settlement.
