Effectively Resolving Business Disputes
Even when you take diligent care to operate your business fairly, legally and ethically, at some point you are likely to encounter a business dispute. If the dispute cannot be resolved through negotiations or arbitration proceedings, your final option is to resolve the issue through litigation. Understanding that disputes can negatively impact day-to-day operations, overall productivity and goodwill in the industry, our attorneys always work to resolve litigation as quickly and efficiently as possible while never losing sight of our clients’ rights, interests and best possible outcome.
Breach Of Contract
A contract, whether written or oral, lies at the heart of every business transaction. When that contract is breached, the nonbreaching party may be entitled to recover for the direct and consequential damages of that action, force the other party to perform or seek other appropriate remedies. There are, however, defenses to a breach of contract action, and specific rules apply to determine what type of evidence is allowed to prove the validity or proper interpretation of the contract. We have significant experience representing clients in contract disputes and can help you assert your contractual rights.
Not all business disputes are contract-based. Claims of fraud, misrepresentation and other civil wrongs can result in liability extending beyond the compensatory measure of damages in a breach of contract dispute, including punitive damage awards in applicable situations. Examples of business torts include:
- Negligent misrepresentation
- Unfair business practices
- Deceptive trade practices
Business tort litigation is dynamically affected by advancements in technology. Due to the accessibility and availability of information on the Internet, trade secrets and other intellectual property assets are increasingly vulnerable to unscrupulous businesspeople. Our firm works to stay abreast of technological developments, understanding that businesses suffer real harm when confidential, incorrect or damaging information is disseminated to competitors or other parties.
