About Eric

Learn Eric’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Bankruptcy and debt
    If you are paying your mortgage on time, but don’t have money to keep up your payments, would filing bankruptcy be in your best interest? When there’s more debt than income, many businesses restructure debt and prove reliability and responsibility to creditors. Find out if bankruptcy is the best option or are there others available for you?

  2. Real estate
    Real estate contracts completed without review by an experienced lawyer can become an expensive mistake to buyers and sellers. Whether the seller or buyer is commercial or residential, areal estate contract should be reviewed. The upfront review can save extensive legal fees after the sale is transacted. Whether black mold, sink holes, leaking roof, or other structural issues, law suits are expensive.

  4. Securities and investment fraud
    Stockbrokers, brokerage firms, investment advisers and other financial professionals have a responsibility to provide clients with appropriate and honest financial advice. When clients suffer losses as a result of inappropriate or dishonest financial advice, investors may hold them liable to recover those losses through litigation or arbitration.

    48 years

Since 1976, Winter Park Florida attorney Eric A. Lanigan, partner at Lanigan & Lanigan, P.L., has80 percent of his practice dedicated to business and civil litigation.

“There’s not much I haven’t litigated, from basic employment contract disputes to suits for defending for non-performance, to collecting damages in class-action suits,” Lanigan said. “I’ve worked on just about any kind of contract you can think of.”

Eric Lanigan is experienced in legal management of corporations and individuals facing or in the middle of financial distress. He handles sophisticated corporate and securities matters for domestic businesses and has represented clients in complex litigation matters.

His partner, Roddy Lanigan, has practiced Florida law with Eric since 2007. Together the Lanigans provide clients experience and aggressive representation with a personal touch.

Eric has represented creditors, trustees, lenders, committees, and acquirers.  He deploys legal solutions ranging from negotiation to mediation, arbitration, litigation, reorganization, liquidation, and acquisition.

Eric assists clients in practice areas including bankruptcy, foreclosure, mortgage workouts, securities and investment losses and real estate.

The Lanigans work with small businesses and large corporations to tackle fiscal challenges to circumvent the cost of litigating unresolved issues later. Distressed businesses struggling with a legacy of undetected or unresolved legal problems tend to also have financial issues which if not addressed and repaired can impede or doom prospects of recovery.

Eric advises clients on organizational and management structure, fiduciary duty obligations, sales and acquisitions, fraudulent transfers, voidable preferences, property rights, compensation and employment, regulatory compliance, antitrust, intellectual property and insurances.

Drawing on decades of legal experience with Central Florida’s businesses, Eric commits a portion of his practice to providing general legal counsel and advice to healthy businesses preventing legal challenges that can lead to business failure. Eric Lanigan is dedicated to the success of every client and is passionate about the legal practice.

Excellent Attorney
When my client and I needed a Florida-based litigator, we first turned to what is considered to be one of the more prestigious and politically connected law firms in the State. After a year of not getting much accomplished, we turned for help to Eric Lanigan of Lanigan & Lanigan. Eric was quickly able to “get up to speed” on our case and, we have been nothing short of happy with what he has been able to accomplish. Eric has exhibited both a keen knowledge of the law as well as a practical insight on how the law actually “plays out” in operation. I heartily recommend Eric Lanigan – both to those in Florida and those outside of the State.

Responsive,loyal,hard working, extremely knowledgeable
Mr. Lanigan has represented me and my family for over 30 years. His work has included multiple real estate sales and purchases, a divorce situation, foreclosure representation, and many other situations where I have needed legal advice and help. In all these situations Mr. Lanigan has demonstrated his great knowledge of the law in all areas needed to represent me. He is a diligent,responsible, compliant attorney who goes out of his way to assist his clients in all aspects of the law. He is always available, and is efficient and timely in his work. I am very confident when he represents me, and know I am getting the best from this extremely capable attorney.
