Business Litigation

Through the years, we have represented clients in all types of business disputes, and are ready to assist in matters such as breach of contract, fraud, tortious interference, and unfair business practices, among others. Because a protracted litigation can impede business operations and become a drain on profits, we often advise our clients to pursue negotiated settlements. If an agreement cannot be reached, we have the skills and resources that are necessary to achieve successful outcomes at trial. Our litigators are comfortable representing both plaintiffs and defendants in civil and administrative proceedings.

Business Dissolution

Our legal team also advises clients regarding corporate and partnership dissolutions, whether negotiated or disputed. Although we prefer to negotiate resolutions of these matters, we are fully prepared to take legal action when it is in our client’s best interests.
