About Cherine

Learn Cherine’s areas of practice.

I concentrate my practice in complex commercial and business tort litigation matters, and e-discovery. I have extensive experience in civil litigation related to breaches of contracts, shareholder disputes, commercial construction, commercial leasing, commercial torts, and insurance defense. I have successfully domesticated out-of-country foreign money judgments and assist clients with drafting and negotiating commercial agreements.

I have represented various domestic and international clients from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses and individuals in all phases of litigation and alternative dispute resolution proceedings. I represent clients from a wide variety of industries including manufacturing, telecommunications, insurers, food and beverage, retail merchandising, financial institutions, accounting services, recruiting, information technology consulting, and homeowners’ associations.

Kim Vaughan Lerner LLP provides an environment in which I am able to provide quality, value-focused litigation services from a pragmatic perspective.
