What to Expect with Business Litigation
Business litigation is a complex area of law that includes a variety of contractual and tort claims.
Common areas of litigation and business disputes include:
- Breach of contract - A breach of contract is the legal cause of action in which a binding agreement was not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract. A breach of contract can also occur through non-performance or interference with another party’s performance of the contract. Remedies for breach of contract include specific performance (forcing the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract) and/or monetary damages to make the non-breaching party whole.
- Unfair competition - Unfair competition can occur when the economic, intellectual, and creative investments made by businesses in distinguishing themselves and their products are harmed. Remedies for unfair competition include preliminary or temporary injunctions, temporary restraining orders (TROs), injunctive relief, mandatory injunctions and monetary damages.
- Creditors’ rights - This practice area focuses on the protection of creditors’ ability to collect money that is owed. There are a number of ways to legally collect payment for a debt owed, including obtaining a judgment, executing a lien and garnishment of a debtor’s wages. We record mechanic liens, and we execute mechanic lien releases when the debt has been paid. Our firm works with businesses acting as creditors as well as companies winding down and paying their liabilities.
What Happens if Your Company Is Involved in a Business Dispute?
Litigation is the process of bringing a lawsuit to remedy a problem or defending against a lawsuit brought against your company. Solid transactional work is your best defense against litigation.
Although having proper transactional work minimizes liability and can avoid many disputes, litigation may be necessary when unavoidable problems arise involving other businesses, vendors, landlords or tenants, employees, insurance adjusters or an administrative agency.
As seasoned business litigation lawyers serving San Diego, CA, we bring successful plaintiff and defense strategies to the table when the situation requires it. Clients can turn to us when they are facing heated disputes or simply want to take steps to avoid litigation in the future.
