About Our Business Litigation Practice

Over $25.8 billion was spent on business litigation in 2020. Studies show that as economic troubles increase, so do business litigation cases and vice versa. For example, if the country is in a recession and companies are laying off employees, there may be a sharp increase in employment disputes. Given the economic fluctuations in the past few years, these cases have increased exponentially since 2015, resulting in many business owners finding themselves in situations that require legal solutions.

Business litigation cases our firm is prepared to handle include:

  • Contract disputes: We expertly handle contract disputes including breaches, misinterpretations, non-compete issues, partnership/shareholder disagreements, construction and real estate contracts, and employment contracts. Issues range from unfulfilled obligations, unclear terms, working for competitors, project delays, cost overruns, undisclosed defects, and wrongful termination claims.
  • Intellectual property: We protect patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets of businesses. Our role involves defending against infringements, enforcing contracts, and resolving disputes to safeguard our clients' unique assets, and brand identity, and maintain their competitive advantage in the market.
  • Partnership disputes: Business partners often seek amicable solutions to disputes to protect their business. Alternative dispute resolution methods like negotiation and mediation involve communication and cooperation and are usually less expensive and time-consuming than litigation. However, if a collaborative solution is unattainable, an experienced business litigator can represent your interests in court.
  • Non-competes: This involves enforcing or contesting non-compete agreements that restrict a person or entity from competing with a business. The agreement must be reasonable in terms of duration, geographic scope, and activities restrained. We ensure these agreements protect our clients' interests without being overly restrictive.
  • Fraud: Business fraud encompasses various forms, including statutory fraud, fraudulent inducement, fraudulent misrepresentation, constructive fraud (breach of duty or deceptive conduct), fraudulent nondisclosure (intentional failure to disclose material facts), negligent misrepresentation, and fraudulent transfer (intentionally transferring assets to defraud creditors).

Litigation cases can take up to nine months from filing to finish. The cost involved can be astronomical especially for smaller businesses.

The Litigation Process: What You Need to Know

Business law cases are typically classified in one of two ways: uncontested or contested.

If both parties can reach a mutual agreement and make it legally binding through negotiation, arbitration, or mediation, the case is uncontested. Mediation is often helpful in partnership disputes. For example, if conflict over a partnership has lead to a dispute, a mediator would be able to help both parties to understand the situation and come up with a new solution. Mediators assist the parties in the discussion, but they do not have the power to impose a resolution. Arbiters however have this power and they work with individuals that cannot come to an agreement through mediation or negotiation.

On the other hand, if the parties cannot agree and need to argue their position, the case is contested. In particular, these cases require savvy legal experts to help businesses build a strong strategy for court. Business litigation attorneys know the court processes, which allows them to argue on behalf of their clients efficiently.
