"My goal in business litigation is to resolve my client's dispute as quickly as possible while doing what I can to protect the bottom line." — Keith H. Rutman, Attorney at Law

Handling Complex Business Litigation Cases

I have successfully handled hundreds of legal disputes on behalf of commercial clients, including financial companies, electronics manufacturers, hardware stores, grocery stores, and other small- and medium-sized businesses.

In the regular course of my legal practice, I have represented companies involved on both sides of a business dispute, including:

  • Disputes over collections accounts
  • Disputes over the timeliness or quality of supplies delivered
  • Disputes between business partners
  • Disputes over claims of faulty products or services

A Reputable Solo Practitioner Handling Business Litigation

As a long-time solo practitioner, I have developed an efficient method of handling business litigation cases for my commercial and business clients — the way I structure my legal practice helps my clients save money while still receiving high-quality legal assistance.

As a solo practitioner, I have long-standing relationships with investigators, paralegals, forensic accountants and other professionals. I contract with these professionals as necessary, rather than maintaining a large staff. This, in turn, keeps my business clients' bills low.

It far exceeded my expectations and I received probation. He offered me essential advice on both legal and strategic matters. Mr. Rutman was always immediately available to assist me. I would expect this kind of outstanding service from any lawyer who stands at the top of his profession." Learn More...
