He is routinely engaged-by both large and small businesses alike-as lead counsel and architect in (so-called) "bet the company" commercial litigation matters. He also litigates financial services and banking matters for his institutional clients, and has litigated numerous trust, probate and other fiduciary-related cases. In addition to his commercial litigation practice, Mr. Adler is also a certified mediator and has served as a court-appointed arbitrator or mediator in a number of commercial and business disputes.

Mr. Adler has extensive experience in bankruptcy matters and frequently represents creditors, debtors and other litigants in various insolvency proceedings in the bankruptcy court.
