Business and Commercial Litigation

The operation of a business or commercial enterprise may inevitably involve litigation. Disputes arise regarding the interpretation of contracts or the rights and responsibilities of the parties under commercial agreements. Partners, shareholders and other owners come and go, businesses dissolve and reorganize, and lawsuits ensue when parties cannot amicably allocate assets and liabilities. Competitors unfairly compete by misappropriating trademarks, service marks and other intellectual property or by interfering with existing contractual relationships. Former employees accept employment in violation of non-compete agreements, and use or reveal trade secrets to competitors.
