COMMERCIAL LITIGATION

Bob has prosecuted and defended claims in a wide variety of procedural contexts such as applications for temporary restraining orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions and constructive trusts, actions in lieu of prerogative writs, declaratory judgment, specific performance and derivative suits.

He has obtained several substantial settlements, verdicts and judgments in the construction, employment, shareholder rights and environmental areas. Bob has significant experience in post-judgment collection procedures.

Bob believes a party should pursue litigation or arbitration only when no other acceptable alternative exists and encourages litigants to seek a resolution, through mediation or otherwise, where at all possible. Robert Dowd is a member of the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation.

An example of the cutting edge commercial cases in which Bob has been involved is RSB Lab Services, Inc. v. BSI Corp, 368 N.J. Super. 540 (App. Div. 2004) where the appellate court upheld a significant jury award of damages for lost profits sustained by the plaintiff when its business could not expand due to defendant's breach of contract.
