There are numerous reasons that parties enter into contracts; in general, they are related to a product and/or service that is to be provided by one party to another. However, even the most carefully written contract cannot account for every eventuality. When one party is not fulfilling their obligations under a contract, various relief options are available. If you are involved in a contract dispute, it is important to speak with a skilled commercial litigation attorney to advise you of your rights. Our attorneys are experienced in handling manufacturing disputes, Uniform Commercial Code disputes and more.
Shareholder and Partnership Disputes
Businesses with two or more owners inevitably run into disagreements about how to operate the company. Some of these disagreements are minor, while others may impact the overall direction of the organization. Most partnership and shareholder disputes can be resolved between the owners, but when the parties are at a standstill, it can lead to management challenges and lost opportunities. If partners or shareholders are unable to come to an acceptable arrangement, litigation may be the only way to settle their differences.
Restraining Orders and Injunctive Relief
When business disputes arise, they can often be settled under a standard timetable either through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution or commercial litigation. However, when the dispute poses an immediate threat to the operation of the company and/or the security of its officers, temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, or similar emergency measures may need to be taken. If your business is in need of a temporary restraining order or injunctive relief, or you have been served notice of either being filed against you or your business, you need the counsel of a skilled commercial and civil litigation lawyer.
Intellectual Property Disputes
For many organizations, their most valuable asset is the intellectual property they possess that sets them apart from their competition. This information can come in many forms, such as trade secrets, product formulations, manufacturing processes, proprietary software, client lists, advertising and marketing methods, trademarks, service marks, copyright and many others. When intellectual property is stolen, it can jeopardize the future viability of the organization. Businesses that have had their intellectual property compromised need the counsel of a seasoned attorney to obtain appropriate relief.
Workplace disputes arise on a regular basis. For example, employees may believe they have been discriminated against, subjected to unfair labor practices, harassed or wrongfully terminated. In other cases, there may be questions about the safety of the work conditions or if the employer has complied with all governing laws and regulations. Some disputes can be resolved through negotiation, while others may need to be decided by the courts. Employment litigation can become quite complicated, however, and requires the guidance of experienced commercial litigation attorneys.
