Aon Hussain is a litigator in Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. He represents individuals and companies in a variety of commercial disputes in state and federal courts across the country.
I assist my clients at all stages of litigation, from pre-suit analysis to resolution. My broad experience includes the drafting of complaints, motion practice, conducting discovery, and negotiating settlements. I have second-chaired a trial in federal court and have assisted clients in appellate litigation as well.
My practice involves a variety of commercial disputes relating to breach of contract and business torts. I represent businesses of all sizes in lawsuits relating to fraud, statutory claims, breach of fiduciary duty, and other business disputes. I also represent businesses in trade secret litigation involving breach of non-compete, non-solicitation, or non-disclosure clauses.
I defend healthcare companies in lawsuits related to breach of contract, fraud and abuse, prompt pay, and payer-provider disputes. I also defend medical device manufacturers against product liability lawsuits.
I have significant experience relating to high exposure insurance coverage litigation. I have analyzed or litigated a broad spectrum of third-party claims relating to construction disputes, cyberliability, employment practices liability, occupational hazards, product liability, toxic torts, and advertising injury. I also have analyzed or litigated first-party claims concerning business interruption losses and commercial property claims.
I am closely tracking the impact that the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is having on breach of contract disputes. I am particularly paying attention to how courts are treating cure clauses and force majeure clauses in light of the virus. I am also observing how courts are interpreting business interruption policies in light of shelter-in-place orders.
