Breach of Contract
Exactly what was agreed upon is not always clear, and circumstances change. Sometimes you have a right to get out of a contract because of unforeseen circumstances,
Intellectual Property Infringement
There are so many businesses out there operating under so many names, it is easy to inadvertently infringe on someone else’s brand, or to have someone infringe on your brand (intentionally or unintentionally). If you are being told to stop using someone else’s brand, you need a lawyer who can advocate for your cause, and your right to use a brand or business technique. On the other side, if someone else is benefitting from your hard work and intellectual property, you need a lawyer who can articulate to the other side and the court that you are being wronged by some other person who is benefitting from your goodwill or talent without your permission or the compensation you are entitled to.
Businesses typically operate on larger cash flows than individuals, and more likely than not carry insurance. As such, they are targets for being sued at every corner. Whether somebody gets hurt on your property, or an employee injures somebody, there is risk that your will be sued. You will need a lawyer to defend your business and good name, and I am just that. I have been on the other side, representing plaintiffs against businesses, and I know the mindset of a plaintiff’s lawyer as well as the true interests and desires of an injured party. If you are a business that is being sued, you will need a lawyer who operates with tact, being tough if necessary, but avoiding unnecessary litigation when the parties can work together to solve an issue.
Owner, Partner, and Shareholder Disputes
Working with others in a for-profit setting is a powder keg for disputes and conflict. No matter how much two or more individuals think they are on the same page, differences of opinion, or vision, are almost inevitable. If you find yourself in this situation, you need a lawyer who can advocate that your understanding is the correct one, and can prove it. You also need a lawyer who values existing and future business relationships, and can proceed with the tact and professionalism necessary for resolution of conflict in an effective manner.
