Pennsylvania and New Jersey corporate litigation attorney Stanley Cheiken is experienced with a wide variety of claims and defenses between partners, corporate principals, and directors. Partnership and corporate claims can involve fraud, contract litigation, and business torts as well as issues under state corporate governance laws. Typically, the distinctions between plaintiffs and defendants tend to blur as each side raises claims and counterclaims against the other.

Corporate and partnership disputes are also frequently suitable for resolution through the use of injunctions and restraining orders in the early stages of the litigation. Because of the advantages that injunctive relief can represent for his clients, civil trial lawyer Stanley Cheiken is quick to spot an opportunity to bring the issues to a head with a timely petition whenever it makes sense to do so.
