Our team has extensive experience litigating cases covering a broad swatch of business and commercial disputes. We regularly handle matters involving alleged breaches of contract, business torts, unfair business practices, as well as many other categories of business litigation. We always work efficiently and resourcefully to resolve disputes prior to trial. But pre-trial efforts do not always triumph, and we have successfully seen multiple cases through formal trials at local, state and federal levels.
Most business disputes involve an allegation that each of one or both parties has not lived up to the obligations set forth in an agreement between them. Our attorneys are skilled in developing the evidence necessary to demonstrate the parties’ intentions in contracting and in fashioning the legal arguments and case strategy that will best enable our clients to enforce contractual rights. Our breadth of litigation experience has prepared our business litigation team to handle any type of contract dispute. Our team frequently litigates cases involving the sale of businesses and asset purchase contracts, construction contracts, insurance disputes, shareholder actions, and disputes between partners or members of limited liability corporations.
Business disputes also often transcend the simple contractual relationship between the parties and spill over into allegations of improper conduct, including fraud, negligent misrepresentation, interference with contractual relations and other types of bad faith activity. The theories of recovery are sometimes based on common law (e.g., fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and negligent misrepresentation) or statute (e.g., racketeering laws, consumer protection laws, and laws relating to unfair trade practices). Our attorneys are battle-tested in both prosecuting and defending these claims and have the “know-how” to achieve successful results for our clients.
