Lisa Coyle has more than 15 years of experience representing large and small companies, entrepreneurs and other individuals, and financial institutions in complex commercial litigation and arbitration matters. She has represented clients in shareholder disputes, earn-out disputes, derivative actions, business divorces, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, business tort cases, stock options disputes, and cases arising under federal securities laws and anti-discrimination, harassment, and retaliation laws.
Lisa regularly represents clients in litigation arising out of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions. She also frequently advises clients in connection with pre-litigation dispute resolution to help them achieve a favorable result without the financial and emotional toll that often accompanies litigation. Lisa works closely with clients to devise, develop, and implement novel and creative solutions to complex business problems. She focuses on litigation strategies designed to achieve her client’s business objectives, regardless of whether a case can be settled prior to filing a complaint, or if it must go all the way through trial and appeal.
Lisa has defended and prosecuted numerous claims in a wide range of jurisdictions, including the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York; the Delaware Court of Chancery; a wide range of federal district courts, bankruptcy courts, and appellate courts; the American Arbitration Association; and JAMS.
During law school, Lisa served as an editor for the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review.
