Welcome to the Cohan Law Group
At Cohan Law Group (CLG), we are determined to provide our clients with cost effective, high quality legal services. We are tireless, strategic, effective advocates. We focus on providing high-quality counsel and representation to both individual and business clients. Our services are goal oriented, responsive and reflect the highest standards of professionalism. Let us show you how we can turn your business dispute into a business result.
We represent individual and business clients in litigation. We prosecute and defend these claims. Examples of this kind of work include:
Breach Of Contract: The Parties entered into a contract and one or more of them failed to perform.
Fraud: The Parties entered into a contract but one or more of them never intended to perform.
Tortious Interference: One party induced another to break a contract or a business relationship for a wrongful purpose.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty: A corporate officer or director or other fiduciary put her interests ahead of those she was entrusted to protect.
Business Divorce and other shareholder disputes: Business owners disagree about management, compensation, ownership or dissolution.
Financial Disputes: A party needs help because they cannot pay, or because they cannot get paid.
We represent employers and employees which means we understand the strategies on both sides. Our representation includes:
Wage and Hour: We litigate overtime disputes, minimum wage disputes and other compensation disputes.
Discrimination: Employers may not harass or make decisions based on race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability or military service.
Restrictive Covenant Issues: This generally refers to non-compete, non-solicitation of customers, prospects, employees and vendors, and confidentiality/non-disclosure/trade secrets.
Executive Compensation and Benefits Disputes: We represent businesses and executives in disputes concerning compensation and benefits.
We represent husbands, wives and children. Our work in this area includes:
Divorce: This work includes alimony, palimony, property division, child support, and modification as may later become necessary.
Custody disputes: This work includes determination of custody following divorce and modification of custody arrangements based on changes in circumstances.
Landlord Tenant Law
We represent landlords and tenants in both residential and commercial landlord tenant disputes. Our representation in this area includes:
Lease disputes: We handle disputes regarding payment for rent, repairs, and maintenance. We also handle disputes regarding lease termination, sub-leases and assignments.
Evictions/dispossessory: This work includes all phases of the efforts of the Landlord to involuntarily remove a tenant from a leased premises.
Construction Law & Litigation
We represent designers, project developers, general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers from the beginning of the project to the end and after. We assist clients in handling liens, bonds, and extra work claims. We review and draft contracts to help avoid problems at the end of the project. Examples of this kind of work include:
Delay Claims: Time is money in construction. When one party causes another to be delayed, we can assist in presenting the claim to the responsible party. If that does not achieve a resolution, we litigate and arbitrate these disputes.
Construction Defect Claims: When contractors or design professionals make mistakes, it can lead to increased costs for the owner of the project – whether through a change order or through later problems such as mold, water infiltration, or structural problems. We have extensive experience in litigating these matters.
Lien and Bond Claims: Contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers often need help to get their final payments on a project. Filing materialman’s liens and/or claims on payment bonds is one way to get that payment made.
Breach of Contract and Breach of Warranty Claims: All construction disputes arise out of contracts. We mediate, arbitrate, and litigate these cases regularly.
