Firm Overview

Supporting Pennsylvania businesses since 1988
Since establishing his preeminent law firm in 1988, attorney Robert J. Donaghy has helped Pennsylvania businesses throughout Bucks County and in Newtown make wise legal decisions regarding real estate law and business law, with an emphasis on contracts and commercial law. The knowledge I have collected while working on such cases for more than 30 years applies well to a broad range of business and real estate issues, encompassing everything from the creation and dissolution of businesses to new real estate ventures. I am well-regarded by my peers for my experience and proven record of results, and consequently have earned an AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest recognition possible in the legal industry, for my professionalism and ethics.

I am also an active member of the Bucks County, Pennsylvania and American Bar Associations, enabling me to stay informed about significant issues affecting businesses. I have authored numerous articles on specific tax-related aspects of the law. Business and real estate disputes or lawsuits can quickly diminish profits, which is why I efficiently and assertively strive to resolve your dispute, whether through mediation, arbitration or litigation, as quickly as possible.

I have regularly handled cases of varying degrees of complexity in the following areas:

Civil trial practice in state and federal courts
Commercial litigation
Commercial real estate
Business law
Employment law and contract law

Emphasizing industry knowledge and experience
As a small business myself, I understand the challenges business owners face in striving to be profitable and competitive. My more than 30 years of experience endow me with in-depth understanding of issues unique to the business and real estate industry, giving you the peace of mind you need to grow your business. I also realize that litigation may not be the best option, which is why I also put an emphasis on utilizing negotiation and arbitration proceedings when appropriate.
