The business world is a complicated one. It’s not uncommon for disputes to arise that wind up in a lawsuit. When this happens, you want to have the most experienced business litigation advocate on your side to protect your assets and your financial interests.

Business litigation is defined as business law, or commercial law that governs the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales. Business law is considered a branch of civil law that deals with issues of both private and public law. No doubt about it, business litigation is complex and can cover the following specialty areas:

  • Business contracts
  • Business torts
  • Close corporations and minority shareholder rights
  • Partnership disputes
  • Construction litigation
  • Real estate litigation
  • Employment litigation
  • Unfair competition and misappropriation of trade secrets

A recent business litigation case we handled involved a company in the process of selling its company and its several separate entities. This company was facing over 40 lawsuits and an inability to resolve these legal disputes quickly. Worse, they had no comprehensive plan to realistically assess the litigation it faced.

We accomplished this by hiring expert assessors and showing the company a computation of damages. This comprehensive overview enabled us to recommend a solution for all parties involved and to minimize the company’s exposure to any future lawsuits.

Since 1967, our skilled business litigation attorneys have been representing small, medium and large corporations throughout Florida.
