Our Results

Over the years the firm has developed a reputation for high stakes, significant business dispute and catastrophic injury representation. Below are some representative examples of the kinds of cases we have resolved through settlement, arbitration and trials. While every case is different and past results are no guarantee of future results, these examples show the experience, versatility and diversity of our practice.

Business/Commercial Settlements

  1. Failure to honor post sale performance and payment obligations upon the sale of company. The firm obtained a multi million dollar recovery against a multi national company for its failure to us best efforts to maximize revenue after purchasing our client's company. 
  2. Failure to honor a buy/sell agreement in a shareholder's agreement. After wrongfully being forced out of a software company, a minority shareholder retained our firm to enforce the provisions of a buy/sell agreement. The case settled favorable for our client on the first day of arbitration. 
  3. Failure to honor property damage insurance obligations. The firm obtained a significant settlement against multiple insurance companies that refused to cover claims for extensive commercial roofing damage. 
"Over 12 years ago, I suffered a catastrophic injury resulting in paralysis and the prospect of any recovery was tenuous at best due to some unusual circumstances. My wife and I turned to Chaiken & Chaiken for help. Ken and Rob and their staff were aggressive, creative and compassionate. They were able to obtain a recovery that has enabled me to get medical care and attention that I have needed along the way. More importantly, the recovery has allowed me to continue to live my life with my wife at home in the best manner possible. We are forever grateful for the work of these lawyers and our ongoing friendship"
