O’Rourke & Associates, established by Brendan J. O’Rourke in 1987 in New Canaan, Connecticut, has a niche practice representing corporate and individual clients in business and complex civil litigation. Attorney O’Rourke began his legal career as an associate at Day Berry & Howard, now known as Day Pitney, LLP. Attorney O’Rourke and his colleague Attorney Lorey Rives Leddy, as well as the firm’s paralegals, have a wealth of experience in handling complex cases. In particular we have successfully handled the following matters:
- Shareholder and Partnership disputes
- Employment litigation, including claims for unpaid bonuses
- High net-worth matrimonial litigation
- Breach of fiduciary duty claims
- Real Estate disputes
We have trial experience before the United States District Court and Connecticut Superior Court and New York Supreme Court. We have also represented clients in arbitrations before the American Arbitration Association, FINRA and private arbitrations administered by various alternative dispute resolution companies. We have also represented clients in appeals to the United States Court of Appeals (Second Circuit), Connecticut Supreme Court and Connecticut Appellate Court.
Significantly, much of O’Rourke & Associates’ work originates from other attorneys who are familiar with our strong reputation for handling complex matters. Because we operate as a small firm, we are able to handle complex cases on a cost effective basis.
