Our Business Litigation Practice

We handle a wide range of disputes involving businesses or business owners, such as

  • contract disputes.

  • ownership disagreements. We handle litigation involving disputes between partners or shareholders, including situations where partners attempt to dissolve an existing company and set up a competing enterprise. We represent clients in disputes over entitlement to the benefits of a business as well as responsibility for the obligations or debts of a commercial entity.
  • employee disputes. We litigate claims involving employees and management, or employees and owners.
  • rights of first refusal claims. We handle claims involving the unilateral right to reject or terminate an agreement without cause.
  • mechanic's lien litigation. We represent contractors and subcontractors in litigation involving mechanic's liens.
  • mortgage foreclosure actions. We advocate for businesses and business owners who face foreclosure proceedings on commercial real estate.
