Larry is a Partner with Lanciano & Associates who focuses his practice on commercial litigation in various state and federal courts and arbitration forums. He represents clients in matters ranging from breach of contract and Uniform Commercial Code disputes to trade secret and unfair competition litigation.

When litigation is unavoidable, however, Larry leverages technology to quickly and efficiently move cases from discovery to dispositive motion practice and trial.
