During the life of a business, there will be times when the owners, officers, management, partners, or shareholders need a lawyer they can turn to in order to resolve a difficult challenge. A business might be faced with uncollected invoices, contract violations, delayed shipments, or internal disputes between partners, owners, or shareholders. Other times, a business may have employees that leave only to steal the trade secrets of the business or unfairly compete with the former employer. The challenge may come from competitors that are violating the law in order to get an unfair advantage in the market place. Some of the present tactics are the use of illegal or undocumented workers being paid below the minimum wage laws, or selling products for below cost or fraudulent advertising or wrongly disparaging a competitor’s product.
Some of the most common troubles faced by local small businesses include:
- Breach of contract lawsuits
- Business and commercial contracts
- Real estate disputes
- Partnership and shareholder disputes
- Employment contracts
- Violations of insurance contracts
- Trade secret violations
- Unfair competition claims
- Property contracts, including real estate and construction contracts
- Breach of fiduciary duty
These business troubles can often be resolved only with the assistance of a quality attorney who understands business law and is an effective trial lawyer. Not every lawyer can handle business litigation matters. For the most effective representation, you need a lawyer who understands the business world, economics, competition and government involvement, as well as an attorney who can use the court system to enforce or protect the rights of a business all the way through a jury trial, if necessary. At the same time, that lawyer must understand, appreciate, and comply with the financial restraints that may be imposed in the prosecution or defense of these business litigation disputes. It does no good for a lawyer to win the case while bankrupting his or her client along the way.
