Assouline & Berlowe, P.A.
My practice focuses on complex business litigation; intellectual property and real estate litigation; bankruptcy and creditors' rights litigation; and non-compete litigation.
I have represented individuals, private and public companies in hundreds of cases in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts throughout the State of Florida; primarily at the trial court level, but often on appeal. I have also appeared pro hac vice, litigating many cases in other states and jurisdictions, as well as acting as local counsel to out-of-state attorneys needing counsel in Florida.
I have been lead litigation counsel to both national and international clients for many contested commercial matters, representing suppliers of goods, and involving the application of various articles of the Uniform Commercial Code, including complex and intricate provisions of Article 2 for Sales, and Article 9 for Secured Transactions. I have represented clients in disputes involving real estate partition and acquisition related litigation. I have handled several contested commercial landlord tenant lease litigation matters and also litigated a number of creditors’ rights matters, through the trial courts, and including post-judgment enforcement and Florida Statute § 56.29 proceedings supplementary.
I have also had extensive bankruptcy litigation experience regarding contested matters in bankruptcy court and adversary proceeding litigation involving preferential transfer and fraudulent transfer actions under 11 U.S.C. §§ 547 and 548.
My dispute resolution practice also involves complex negotiations, mediation, and arbitration. I have also represented parties before the American Arbitration Association; been appointed by Broward County Judges to preside as the Arbitrator in many Circuit Court cases; and, by agreement of the parties, I have served as the Mediator on banking litigation cases. I have also served as an expert witness for many attorneys’ fees disputes.
