Barry Kaltenbach has handled commercial disputes in state and federal courts from coast to coast for the past twenty years, while always trying to keep his clients out of court.
His practice currently spans a wide range of civil matters. In the last few years, he has successfully established ownership of over $1 billion in tax attributes in federal court on the east coast and defended against customer solicitation and misappropriation of trade secret claims on the west coast. He also regularly represents financial institutions in workouts and commercial foreclosures; employers and employees in non-compete and non-solicit disputes; developers and contractors in construction contract documentation and delay and defect litigation; technology companies in contract, intellectual property and software licensing disputes; and manufacturers in Uniform Commercial Code and product liability fights.
Barry has extensive knowledge of the insurance industry and regularly advises clients on their rights under general liability, professional liability, errors and omissions, umbrella, and excess insurance policies. Where insurance has not been able to provide a solution, he has also litigated claims against large insurance brokers for the failure to procure appropriate coverage.
Although over 95 percent of all lawsuits end in settlement, for those cases where a client faces a fight on which it cannot compromise, Barry has taken multiple cases to trial in state and federal courts. He also regularly prosecutes and defends temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions and has arbitrated and mediated numerous disputes.
