Business Contract Disputes

Contract disputes are perhaps the most common form of disputes in business litigation. Ideally, every contract would be in writing and well-drafted. However, not all contracts are in writing, and even those that are written may not be well-drafted, leaving some issues unclear or not addressed at all. Often contract disputes involve these and other complex factual and legal issues. That’s where our commercial litigation attorneys excel.

Our attorneys have resolved hundreds of contract disputes through negotiation, mediation and, if necessary, litigation. Whether your case involves a simple contract dispute or complex litigation – involving multiple layers of relationships, extensively detailed agreements, and difficult legal issues – our team of business litigation attorneys will work to resolve your matter with the careful consideration it deserves.

Non-competition Covenants

A non-competition covenant can be a valuable way to protect a business, whether you are protecting your existing business or are buying one. Non-competition clauses are commonly included in employment contracts, sale agreements and shareholder agreements. Well-drafted non-competition covenants may mean the difference between a business’s success or failure. If there is a difficulty in these covenants, it is their enforceability. The clauses receive additional judicial scrutiny, and there are occasions when courts will not enforce these kinds of covenants.

That is why you need experienced attorneys to assist you in drafting and enforcing non-competition covenants. Our attorneys have represented companies, shareholders, and individual employees in these cases, with an impressive track record.

Shareholder & Partnership Disputes

Like marriages, business partnerships and closely-held corporations begin with high hopes and much goodwill between the parties. Unfortunately, like some marriages, business partnerships occasionally end in acrimony and litigation.

In this complex area of the law, it is important to receive counsel from attorneys who are experienced in shareholder and partnership disputes. Our attorneys represent companies and their shareholders in these kinds of disputes every day. While our counsel often allows companies and shareholders to amicably resolve disputes without litigation, sometimes litigation is unavoidable. When the time comes to litigate, our attorneys stand ready and able to protect your interests.
