Business Litigation Representation for a Wide Variety of Disputes

Below is a list of some areas of business litigation where we provide representation, but please contact us about your specific Business Litigation needs.

Business Owner Disputes

Disputes between business owners can be extremely disruptive and have a significant impact on the owners’ ability to function professionally.

They often arise in small, closely-held organizations and may involve allegations of:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Breach of contract
  • Or other issues

The outcome of these disputes can have significant consequences, making it imperative for business owners who are involved in disagreements to retain an attorney. In some cases, a skilled attorney can negotiate a resolution that avoids litigation and preserves the relationship into the future.

Business Torts

Business torts are civil wrongs for which you can recover compensation.

Some examples of the business torts we can handle include:

  • Tortious interference with a business contract
  • Tortious interference with a business relationship
  • Injurious falsehood
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Theft and conversion
  • Conspiracy
  • And defamation


Unfortunately, sometimes customers and clients do not pay. When this occurs, you may need to go through the collections process to get the money you are owed.

In some cases, a simple demand letter on attorney letterhead is sufficient to get reticent debtors to pay. In others, however, you may need to file a lawsuit and take the matter to court to obtain a judgment. In any case, working with an attorney can make the collections process much easier.

Commercial Disputes

Commercial disputes between business entities are going to arise. In some cases, the success and even continued existence of your business may be dependent on the outcome of your case.

We are qualified to represent people involved in any type of business dispute, including:

  • Partner disputes
  • Vendor disputes
  • Customer disputes
  • And landlord-tenant disputes

Contract Disputes

Contracts are at the heart of business dealings. Unfortunately, many boilerplate, fill-in-the-blank contracts are unclear or written in a way that results in misunderstandings and disagreements between the parties to the agreement. That said, contract disputes can arise regarding even the most artfully drafted contract.

Employment Litigation

Disputes with employees regarding wage and hour matters, wrongful termination, discrimination, or other employment matters can have a significant impact on your business’s reputation and bottom line.
