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.
