Common Commercial Litigation Needs

Whether you have a case going to trial or you are seeking alternative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration, it is important to have an experienced legal team to cover your needs. Below, you’ll get a look at just a few of the areas where a commercial litigation attorney will benefit your business and other entrepreneurial ventures.

  • Real estate and investments – Commercial real estate is often much more complex than residential sales and purchases, so you may need our team to draw up contracts, make insurance
    recommendations, and sort through any tax and proration issues.
  • Fraud – In cases of fraud, extensive investigation is needed to back up allegations. With legal representation, you can be sure that your personal rights are protected as your business is put under investigation. Because fraud claims can deal with billions of dollars in damages, it is important to have experienced representation that you can trust to preserve your best interests.
  • Franchises – Franchises are uniquely susceptible to litigation, as many franchise companies will face a lawsuit from franchisees at some point. Franchises may also bring suits against franchisees for operating in an unanticipated manner that does not follow the terms of a franchise contract.
  • Contracts – You may not only need assistance in drafting employee contracts and contracts related to sales, acquisitions, and mergers, but you might require litigation in the event of a breached contract.
