Helping Businesses with Legal Issues

In the world in which we live, lawsuits can be a huge factor in the success or demise of a business. Disputes may arise, requiring the skilled and swift action of a legal team. Though many business law matters can be addressed through the avenues of mediation or negotiation, there are times when the only possible course of action involves courtroom proceedings. Going up against high-powered law firms and big companies can be a daunting prospect, but with the aggressive work of a business litigation lawyer, you can pursue or defend against all manner of disputes or important matters that may arise.

Breach of Contract

If you have put your faith into a partner or other business entity only to be faced with a breach of contact you should take action. Breach of contract usually happens when one person or entity fails to provide products or services as agreed upon in a signed document. If the party who broke the contract does not have a legitimate legal excuse, you may be able to pursue them for compensation.

Broker Misconduct

Brokers are held to high standards and often have the trust of companies and individuals. Unfortunately, there are numerous ways a broker can violate legal parameters, and the rules of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Stockbroker misconduct can involve either intentional or unintentional activities. Some of these activities include negligence, churning, misrepresentation, overconcentration, unauthorized trading, and unsuitability. There are ways to recover if your company’s losses are unusually high.

Business Collections

When a debt has reached the stage of collections, it often seems that there is no way to recover it. In addition, significant debts sometimes can mean the future of company. You do not have to let the unpaid debts of others control your business. A lawyer at the firm can offer diligent work and protect your interests.

Business Dissolutions

If you are seeking the legal assistance of an attorney during your business dissolution proceedings do not hesitate to contact our firm. We handle dissolutions related to corporations, and partnerships. While sometimes dissolutions are voluntary, other cases involve outside issues that are beyond your control. Because there are state and federal regulations surrounding dissolutions, having a lawyer on your team during the process would be a valuable asset.

Commercial Transactions

Whether you are seeking to establish a business or expand an already existing one, an attorney can help you with the legal procedures. Some types of assistance the firm provides is related to loan and equity financing, counsel during mergers and acquisitions, licensing, tax planning and business collections. Prevent unwanted consequences by hiring someone who can navigate the legal requirements and restrictions.

Contract Disputes

When parties sign a contract it is understood as a binding agreement. It is the expectation of both parties that the other will uphold their agreement. Unfortunately, this is not the case in all scenarios, and disputes can arise. When instances like this arise, a lawyer can let you know your options such as negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. Do not let unfair business practices or fraud prohibit the growth of your business.

Insurance Disputes

If you are pursuing insurance compensation for property damage from natural disasters or vandalism it is recommended that you contact an attorney. Common reasons for an insurer not paying out include errors or omissions in reports. Commercial insurance is complicated and a fair amount of the time, your insurer does not want to compensate you. Only through legal action may you be able to resolve the situation. You are entitled to achieving a fair settlement from your business insurer.

Licensing Disputes

Due to advancements in technology and the internet, it is more important than ever to protect your intellectual property. Intellectual property has two major components: copyrights and patents. Copyrights include creative works such as logos, audio works, visual works, and written works. Patents are applied to useful works such as machines, design qualities, and genetically modified organisms. Protect your hard work through the assistance of an attorney with applying for a copyright or patent or start the litigation process if someone has infringed on your already licensed work.

Loan Modification/Foreclosure Disputes

We are in the midst of an economic downturn, and homeowners and business alike are facing the threat of foreclosure. There are other alternatives to foreclosure such as loan modification. Loan modification usually entails a reduction in interest rates, lengthening the term of the loan, or allowing for interest only period. If your business is not generating enough income to pay the mortgage or operating expenses, your lender can grant you a modification.

Partnership Disputes

Partner disputes are one of the most negative experiences a business can go through. It is crucial to resolve a dispute as quickly as possible or the business may suffer. An attorney can help you resolve your dispute through negotiation or litigation if necessary. It is important to remain focused on the best solution for your business during this time and not be distracted with personal problems you may have with your partner.

Royalty Disputes

When your business holds the rights to loyalties of either real or intellectual property it has the right to receive payment from others who profit from using that material. If your business is not receiving the royalties it is entitled to it can put a huge financial burden on your company as well as create a negative relationship with those who owe you royalties. Do not let your hard work go unrewarded.

Trademark Disputes

Trademarks are another type of intellectual property, they allow others to see who designed, manufactured, or sold the product. A trademark sets your company apart from others. If another party violates your trademark rights, you could suffer a loss in reputation and revenues. Protect your business through filing for a registered trademark or prosecuting those who have violated your mark.

Employment Law

According to the State of California Labor and Workforce Developmental Agency there are 477 selected key laws that directly affect labor and employment for both public and private sector workers. These laws outline the requirements for wages, hours, working conditions, benefits, and special labor relations. These 477 laws do not include federal regulations. It can be easy for a business owner to become overwhelmed by regulations when they are concentrating on the prosperity of their business.

Investor and Shareholder Issues

When working to aid the growth of a business, you may take on the assistance of investors or shareholders. These individuals contribute finances or services to your business. Sometimes issues can arise, whether they never provided you with the promised money or action, a problematic investor can be a major setback.

Investors

You are entitled to receiving the promised funding from an investor as long as no legitimate legal reason prohibits. When an investor fails to adhere to the contractual procedures it can greatly set your business behind. The firm can assist you with all investor disputes or issues either through negotiation or litigation.
