Anthony Acampora
Chair, Litigation

Litigation is never your first choice.

So, why hire attorneys for whom litigation is the only choice?

When a commercial dispute cannot be avoided, you can count on our Litigation Group to craft effective solutions to your most complex and sophisticated problems. Whether we are in the state or the federal courts throughout the United States, our goal is to minimize the impact that litigation has on you and your business so that you can get back to work.

The Group combines its significant trial and appellate experience with a deep, substantive knowledge of the legal and practical issues that regularly face your business. By understanding your company, we can tailor our advice, and our solutions, to your individual needs in order to reach a resolution quickly and efficiently.

Our results speak for themselves. We have successfully defended the sellers in a leveraged buyout from claims in excess of $80 million. When clients find themselves victims of an accountants’ malpractice, they rely on our considerable expertise and our proven track record of multimillion dollar recoveries. Banks and other lenders regularly turn to us to recover significant debts and to manage intricate and delicate inter-creditor issues. Our real estate clients consult the Litigation Group for residential and commercial mortgage foreclosures, commercial landlord-tenant disputes, and purchase and sale disputes.

We understand that litigation does not always provide the best solution for you, and we are equally comfortable reaching your goals through negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. We know that litigation is not a sustainable business strategy.

Your company was built on your hard work and creativity and on a minimum of wasted effort.

When litigation is inevitable and you need to fight, why not retain counsel that shares those values?

our clients
really like us ...

  • I have had the pleasure to work with Ken Silverman, Russ Stern, and the team at SA on several complex matters. What sets SA apart is that the attorneys are creative and collaborative. They have the unusual ability to view situations from both a legal and a business perspective. They listen carefully and suggest thoughtful paths. I look forward to a life-long relationship and many future collaborations with Ken, Russ, and the SA team.

  • Silverman Acampora has successfully and effectively represented my businesses in various matters. I have worked closely with Jay Hellman and Ron Friedman and their expertise and dedication have served to obtain favorable outcomes.

    Holly Wallman, Retro Fitness Franchisee

  • I used to recommend clients who need assistance with commercial litigation to large, impersonal firms, but now I solely recommend Silverman Acampora. Jay Hellman and Russ Stern give their clients personalized attention that one would not expect from a large firm, and more importantly, they take the time to keep the client actively involved through all phases of the litigation. In all the matters that I have referred to SA, the one common denominator clients have reported is excellent legal work and exceptional client contact.
