Plaintiff or Defendant, we assist in contract disputes including:

  • Breach of Contract
  • In the situation where you entered into a binding contract and the other party failed to fulfill its end of the bargain, there is a breach. We can help you recover damages including out-of-pocket expenses, injunctive relief, loss of the “benefit of the bargain,” specific performance and other incidental and consequential damages.

  • Business Disputes
  • We routinely represent clients in a wide variety of business disputes including breach of contract, partnership, member (LLC), and shareholder (INC) disputes, trade secret, non-compete, copyright, trademark, real estate disputes, and even contractual disputes involving employment issues.

  • Partnership Disputes
  • It is not uncommon for the most amicable business partners to have a serious disagreement from time to time. Unfortunately, legal action may sometimes be necessary to protect your interest and investments. Common partnership disputes among partners include: (a) failure to honor fiduciary duties, (b) failure to satisfy contractual obligations as specified in the partnership or operating agreement, (c) secret business dealings that are contrary to the company’s best interests, (d) and many other disruptive scenarios.

  • Member/Shareholder Disputes
  • Shareholder disputes often arise for a number of typical reasons including: (a) a desire by shareholder(s) to terminate the shareholder relationship, (b) disagreement with the actions of the majority shareholders, (c) claims by a minority shareholder that actions of the controlling shareholders are illegal, oppressive or fraudulent. No matter the underlying reason causing the dispute, we are expert negotiators and mediators and can likely assist you in coming to a resolution that will be satisfactory to both sides.

  • Trade Secret & Non-Compete Disputes
  • In today’s competitive business environment, the loss or defection of trusted employees or partners can be disastrous. The theft of your customer list, supplier list, or confidential tiered wholesale pricing list can also be devastating if taken to competitors or used to start a new business that will compete against you. These days, critical data can be emailed, uploaded, or copied to a thumb drive. A $5 memory stick can contain a decade’s accounting and payroll records. Not only are we experienced in helping business owners in protecting their trade secrets, we are expert at prosecuting those who have stolen trade secret and confidential data for personal gain.
