Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Commercial Litigation

Disputes are an inevitable part of any business. When a client comes to us with a dispute, we take the time to get to know and learn about the client and its business. In that way, we can apply holistic view to the client’s dispute and make an informed decision about the most cost-effective manner to achieve the client’s goals. Sometimes that means negotiating a solution. And sometimes that means commencing litigation and going to trial. From the negotiation table to counsel’s table, we have the experience to assist you.

We have experience representing clients in a wide array of commercial disputes including:

  • Business Torts
  • Temporary and Permanent Injunctions
  • Partnership and Shareholder Disputes
  • Member and Shareholder Derivative Litigation
  • Collections and Judgment Enforcement
  • Contract Disputes
  • Fraud and Fraud in the Inducement
  • Unfair Competition
  • Deceptive Trade Practices
  • Breaches of Representations and Warranties

Local Counsel

We understand that out-of-town clients may prefer that their longstanding lawyers handle certain disputes for them. That is why we serve as local counsel for those clients and out-of-town law firms.  We know that each local counsel engagement is different. That is why from leading role to supporting role, we adapt to each local counsel engagement based on the client’s needs.

Having served as a federal law clerk and being active in the local community, Omar is ideally position to be local counsel. He is familiar with the federal and state judiciary and knows the state and federal local rules, the administrative orders, and internal operating procedures.

Alternative Dispute Resolution & International Arbitration

In addition to our courtroom litigation experience, OKI Law has experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in domestic and international arbitrations.   In addition, we have the unique experience of being appointed and serving on several international arbitration tribunals as Secretary to the Tribunal.  We have handled matters across a wide range of industries and within a variety of forums such as the AAA, ICDR, LCIA, and JAMS.

Employment & Labor

OKI Law has extensive experience in labor and employment law, including

  • Litigating trade secret, non-competition, and non-solicitation agreements
  • Federal and state wage and hour laws
  • Discrimination claims under
    • Title VII discrimination claims(race, sex, color, creed, national origin)
    • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act;
    • The Americans with Disabilities Act; and
    • The Family and Medical Leave Act.

We use that experience to advise and guide our clients and to represent our clients in the investigation and litigation stages at the federal, state, and local levels.

Real Estate Litigation And Services

 Few people go into basic real estate dealings expecting them to result in litigation. However, unexpected disputes often arise and we are here to help. We have experience handling disputes related to:

  • Real property contracts
  • Residential home sales
  • Escrow disputes
  • Brokerage commissions
  • Landlord-tenant issues
  • Evictions

We also have experience counseling our clients regarding residential and commercial leases, escrow agreements, and the like.

In late 2018 we will be launching our real estate closing service.

International Extradition

Working together with Eduardo Palmer, P.A., OKI Law represents clients dealing with international extradition issues in the United States and abroad.  We provide counsel when Americans and international clients are charged with white collar crimes in foreign countries and are being sought for extradition or when the United States government seeks to extradite them to the United States. Whether you are facing extradition from the United States to a foreign country or from a foreign country to the United States, it is important that you consult with competent legal counsel.

General Counsel and Business Counsel

We recognize that as small and medium business grow, they need the legal advice to address every day issues, but don’t have the budget to afford full-time in-house counsel. That is why we work to provide a customized solution for our small and medium business clients to help them with contract negotiation and drafting, contract review, real estate and equipment leases, outside vendor agreement, employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, and other general day-to-day legal issues.

Our client-specific representation can range from one-off projects for our clients to our more comprehensive general counsel program, which allows clients to have ready legal advice at the fraction of the cost of full-time in-house counsel.
