Contract Disputes: Battleson Law represents individuals and businesses in disputes related to breach of contract. Whether your matter arises from a property dispute, employment contract, restrictive covenants (such as non-compete, non-solicitation, non-disclosure, or trade secrets), a vendor’s failure to deliver goods or services, debt collection, or other damages from unfulfilled business agreements, an experienced contract dispute attorney is prepared to represent your interests ethically and aggressively.
Investor & Owner Disputes between shareholders, partners & LLC members: All owners and investors in a business or asset are generally entitled to information, proper accounting, good faith, and respect for the financial interests of all those involved. Often times, one partner or co-owner acts in a way that is against the interest of the entity and other investors, or acts outside his/her authority under governing documents (bylaws, operating agreements, partnership agreements, or state law). In addition to potentially violating signed agreements, certain actions may constitute a breach of fiduciary duty owed to other interested parties. Battleson Law has been on the business side and legal side of such matters for 20 years. The firm can delicately, but aggressively, handle disputes between business partners or shareholders in areas including profit-sharing disputes, breach of owner/partnership agreements, breach of fiduciary duty, and business divorces.
Business to Business Disputes & Government Disputes: Battleson Law strives to resolve disputes that arise between two or more businesses, as well as those that arise between your business and government entities. The firm is able to guide you through a cost-effective resolution of such matters, and, if necessary, aggressively represent your business in litigation or administrative proceedings.
Business Torts: Like a personal injury “tort”, a business tort is a claim for either negligent or intentional wrongful acts committed by individuals or businesses against another business. Tort law is based on common law (case law) and/or is codified in the form of regulations or statues. A common business tort is wrongfully interfering with an existing contract or some protected economic advantage (e.g., theft of trade secrets, violation of patent protection, etc.). Other business torts include: defamation / disparagement, unfair competition, and conversion / misappropriation of funds.
Acquisition / Sale of Business Disputes: Battleson Law cost-effectively handles disputes that arise during the sale of a business. This can include: terms of the sale, financing issues, financial reporting and disclosure, delay costs, non-payment, earn-out enforcement/defense, representations and warranties violations, or other breaches of contract. Our focus is to help our clients reach a prompt and favorable resolution of any issue that arises before, during, and after the sale or acquisition of a business.
Battleson Law is equipped to handle business and commercial disputes with cost-consciousness and appropriate diligence/aggression. Contact a contract dispute attorney immediately upon recognizing that a dispute is on the horizon. We may be able to avert serious consequences by early involvement in a matter, and the earlier we know the issues and facts, the better positioned you will be if we are not able to resolve the matter without litigation.
