Breach of Contract

The most common legal problem facing small business owners is the failure of vendors, suppliers, and customers to keep their contractual commitments. Shoddy workmanship, defective products, late deliveries, and failure to pay need not be treated as costs of doing business. Our approach to broken contracts quickly identifies the key legal and factual issues and positions our clients for a speedy and cost-effective resolution of the dispute in which just compensation is paid and fairness is restored.

Someone who makes a promise or signs a contract knowing that he will never do exactly what he agreed to has committed fraud. Factual dishonesty in negotiations and other deceptive trade practices are not tolerated by the law. We assist small businesses who have been injured by deceit to recover their losses. Learn more ›

Unfair Competition

Cut throat competition is expected in the marketplace, only so long as it is honest and legal. Theft of trade secrets, violation of non-compete agreements, defamation, business disparagement, copyright infringement, and interference with contractual relationships are not permitted. We target these illegal, predatory business practices to restore a level playing ground for our clients. Learn more ›

Shareholder Oppression

We have long focused our practice on the legal rights and duties in closely-held corporations, S-corporations, partnerships, and other private business entities. Our cases involve issues of breach of fiduciary duties, shareholder rights, inspection of corporate records, squeeze-outs, freeze-outs, and buy-outs. We represent business owners in disputes with their co-owners, shareholders, corporate officers and directors, general partners, limited partners, and members of limited liability companies. We assist minority shareholders in protecting their rights and resisting minority shareholder oppression and squeeze-outs. We assist majority owners who are accused of wrong-doing or who believe they are being set up for a lawsuit. We also represent partners engaged in ending or splitting up their businesses. Learn more ›
