Breach of Contract Litigation
At the heart of every business transaction lies a contract, dictating rights and responsibilities for both sides. While most contracts are in writing, some may be oral and still be valid, while others may not be expressly stated at all, yet still a contract is implied in law. Businesses extend contractual relationships in dozens of different ways – with vendors, suppliers, landlords, employees and more – and when disputes arise, courts frequently turn to the terms of the contract to decide important rights. We provide keen insight and a constructive strategy to resolve your contract dispute favorably.
Even without a contract, businesses can find themselves embroiled in litigation brought on by other companies, members of the public or even government agencies. We can represent you in litigation based on allegations of consumer fraud, unfair business practices, deceptive trade practices and more. If your rights are being violated by another, we can help you pursue your claims as well. Damages in a business tort lawsuit may exceed the actual economic costs of a contract dispute, so having strong, effective representation is necessary to protect your important business interests.
Almost all business owners and executives find themselves in the role of employer as well, and subject to the numerous employment-related complaints that may be filed based on local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations. We provide practical advice, technical assistance and legal representation before courts and administrative agencies in a wide variety of employment claims, including:
- Employment discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Wrongful Termination
- Minimum wage claims
- Unpaid overtime
