Practice Areas

The Law Offices of Donald J. Tobias serves the needs of its institutional and business clients in six principal areas.

Business and Commercial Litigation

We represent the interests of large and medium-sized businesses – both national and local – in a wide range of commercial disputes. Such representation has included advancing and/or defending our clients’ interests in disputes involving claimed breaches of contract, disputes between shareholders, disputes involving alleged breaches of product warranties, disputes involving the purchase and sale of real property, disputes involving alleged breaches of employment contracts and covenants not to compete, disputes involving the application of the Uniform Commercial Code and disputes involving allegations of civil fraud and related acts of commercial misconduct.

Asset Liquidation

We undertake the representation of institutional lenders as well as persons and entities that acquire loans in the secondary mortgage market. Working closely with the client, we seek to enforce the terms of the notes and other instruments that are acquired by the client and to liquidate, efficiently and expeditiously, any pledged collateral.

High-End Collections and Judgment Enforcement

We undertake plaintiff representation in “high-end” collection matters. This means not only that we seek to make full and effective use of all available legal options and remedies to help our clients achieve their business goals, but also that we formulate and develop appropriate legal strategies to deal with obstructive and dilatory tactics that may be employed by the debtor.

Business and Commercial Mortgage Foreclosure

We undertake creditor representation, principally in complex commercial foreclosure cases, throughout New York State. This representation covers New York City and all suburban and upstate areas.


We undertake the representation of our creditor clientele in all phases of the bankruptcy process. This includes the initiation of proceedings to vacate the automatic bankruptcy stay, to challenge the feasibility of reorganization plans and to contest the debtor’s right to an overall bankruptcy discharge and/or the dischargeability of specific debts.

General Business, Real Estate and Transactional Matters

While the offices’s principal focus is the representation of its business and institutional clientele in litigated matters, it also serves the needs of these clients in general transactional and real estate matters. It accordingly provides representation in, among other things, the purchase and sale of businesses, the sale and leasing of real property and the negotiation, preparation and review of business and commercial agreements.
