Philadelphia commercial litigation attorney Gerald Berkowitz has successfully handled a broad range of cases involving:

Judgment Liens

If your company is suffering from another business entity’s failure to make payments or render services, one of the ways in which you may be able to obtain restitution is through a judgment lien. There are several different circumstances in which judgment liens may be granted, such as failure to pay, or another breach of contract. Berkowitz Klein has decades of experience with judgment liens, so contact us today to see what we can do for you.

Breach of Contract

Contracts are like blueprints for a business deal. Contracts lay out the terms of payment, delivery, timing, and a whole host of other factors that are of paramount importance to a business deal progressing smoothly and beneficially for both parties involved. When one party commits breach of contract, either accidentally or intentionally, it can have devastating financial consequences for the aggrieved party. Time and money are critical, and if your business is being drained of either by a breach of contract, our attorneys can help.


Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Fiduciary relationships are built on faith and trust. But when that trust is broken and breach of fiduciary duty occurs, it can wreak financial and emotional havoc on the aggrieved party. Breach of fiduciary duty can include any dishonesty, misrepresentation, or otherwise improper conduct pertaining to deadlines, fees, and client relationships. Fiduciary duty is a serious obligation — and breaching it is a serious offense.

Partnership Disputes

Business partnerships can run into stumbling blocks for a range of reasons. One partner may feel that the other is not “pulling their weight” in the company. The goals and objectives of the partners may have diverged to a point where continuing along the same path is impossible. Or, the partners may simply be struggling with the human element of clashing methods and personalities. Whatever issue is hampering your partnership, Berkowitz Klein is here for you.

Commercial Collections

Like a brain deprived of oxygen, a business entity cannot function properly when it is deprived of the financial resources it needs to work in a timely and efficient manner. If your business is mired in financial difficulties as a result of another company failing to make one or more payments, don’t wait until it’s too late and the statute of limitations has expired — call Berkowitz Klein today.



ERISA stands for the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, which was passed in 1974. ERISA is a federal law which is designed to protect employees from losing their retirement savings before they have a chance to actually enjoy them during the retirement years. While ERISA does set standards for pension minimums where pension plans exist, business entities are not actually required by ERISA to offer pension plans in the first place. ERISA laws can be complicated, but Berkowitz Klein has the ERISA experience your business needs.
