Although arbitration is a typical alternative to litigation when provided for in the contract or agreed to thereafter, arbitration can also be costly and time-consuming. Mediation can be utilized before litigation or arbitration are commenced or during the process.
Whether to prevent lawsuits or to settle litigation, mediation is extensively used.
Numerous commercial arrangements have clauses forcing parties to arbitrate disputes instead of going to court.
Dispute Resolution Through Negotiation and Litigation
Despite all the precautions a company takes to prevent disagreements, it could still wind up in court. Our lawyers are tenacious litigators who seek optimal results through rigorous planning and honed courtroom techniques. Whenever appropriate, we arrange settlements and suggest going to trial when doing so is in our client’s greatest interests. We stand up for you in cases involving:
- Contractual Conflicts – Our lawyers seek either particular fulfillment of the agreement or financial damages, depending on what the circumstances of our client’s case call for. We customize our defenses when defending a party who is accused of breaching an agreement to the specific facts underlying the nonperformance, such as the opposing party’s breach, a Force Unforeseen/Majeure event, estoppel and waiver, or voidability.
- Shareholder Conflicts – Considering so much is at stake, it is understandable that shareholder disagreements periodically break out. Disagreements, however, might result in irreversible splits and seriously damage the company. To posture themselves as advantageously as possible, our firm advises potential clients to seek legal counsel as soon as is practical.
- Patent, trademark, and trade dress infringement – A company’s intellectual property is generally considered one of its most valuable assets. The corporation takes infringement lawsuits very seriously because they can have a significant negative effect on a business’s economic balance and overall financial stability. When a client experiences infringement or is suspected of engaging in the practice, our firm is prepared to act quickly.
- Unfair and deceptive trade practices – In many states, laws have been passed to safeguard consumers against deceptive commercial activities and practices in a number of trades and commerce. Such a law makes an effort to compel entities to act with at least a minimal degree of integrity and fairness in their business operations. Our lawyers defend both consumers and corporations in matters involving claimed breaches of this Act.
- Franchise Conflicts – Simply put, a franchisee has a responsibility to uphold the terms of the franchising agreement/contract and submit the agreed-upon fees to the franchisor. The franchisor provides the advantages of branding, marketing, and advertising, as well as certain operations in return. Whenever one party breaks its promise, the franchise arrangement disintegrates. Our attorneys have a great deal of knowledge about using the intricate federal and state requirements to help the harmed parties get redress.
- Fiduciary & Professional Liability Claims – A fiduciary has the constitutional obligation to operate in the principal’s best interests. Legal guardians, accountants, stockbrokers, corporate directors, and attorneys are a few examples of professionals who ensure a fiduciary connection. Fiduciary lawsuits may result from illegal behavior, conflicts of interest, or fraudulent misrepresentation. We provide the experience and knowledge to defend a wrongly accused fiduciary or a principal who has been harmed in a dispute.
