Civil and Business Litigation

From partnership disputes to breach of contract actions, to fraud, Egan, Flanagan & Cohen provides advice and legal representation to our business clients to ensure their interests are advanced. We understand business needs and consider their short and long-term objectives when determining what legal action, if any, is appropriate for their situation.

Egan, Flanagan & Cohen’s litigators have decades of unmatched courtroom experience and expertise in civil trials. Among them, they have tried hundreds of cases to verdict in state and federal courts. Our attorneys have frequently obtained the largest verdicts in Western Massachusetts in areas such as wrongful death, shareholder disputes, eminent domain, employment discrimination, and personal injury.

In 2019, the firm recovered a $9 million award at trial on behalf of a western Massachusetts business that was wrongfully being taken advantage of by a company in eastern Massachusetts.

In 2014, the firm recovered a $50.3 million arbitration award in a property damage and insurance coverage dispute for a local institutional client.

Egan, Flanagan & Cohen’s attorneys have also repeatedly successfully defended the firm’s business and institutional clients in civil and criminal matters, often resulting in the dismissal of the case altogether before trial or defense verdicts after trial.

Our successes and experience in the courtroom often provides us leverage in the negotiating room.
