Types of Miami Business Litigation Our Practice Handles

Our Miami business law lawyers are experienced in a wide range of matters, including litigation for breach of contracts and collection disputes, corporate disputes, and disputes concerning unfair competition.

Breach of Contract Disputes 

Breach of contract disputes are based on four premises:

  1. The existence of a valid and enforceable contract
  2. Proof that you performed according to the terms of the contract
  3. Proof that the other party failed to meet the terms of the contract
  4. Proof that the other party’s breach of the contract resulted in real damages

It’s important to bear in mind that breach of contract claims are restricted by statutes of limitations that apply from the time of the breach, not the time of discovery. Our capable business litigation lawyers can help you with any breach of contract situation, including:

  • Breach of promissory notes

As your attorneys, we are always on your side, whether you are in the position of the lender or the borrower. We take the position that whether you are owed money that is not being paid as promised or you are being harassed for funds you do not owe, you deserve justice.

  • Breach of commercial leases

Again, whether you are a landlord who is being stiffed or a tenant whose business space is not being kept habitable or safe, our business litigation attorneys are here to help you deal with a violation of your commercial lease.

If you are the landlord, the problem may involve a tenant who is failing to pay the rent or damaging your property. If you are the tenant, your landlord may be failing to fix a leak, provide proper heat, repair a broken floorboard or address an insect infestation. Whatever the specifics of your breach of contract claim, Perez Mayoral has your back.

  • Fraud or misrepresentation

Whether you have signed a contract after being lured to do so by misrepresentations or fraudulent statements, or if you are being falsely accused of engaging in such misconduct, our lawyers will fight vigorously for your rights

Collection Cases 

Aware of how difficult it is to keep your business profitable when you cannot collect monies owed to you, we are available to pursue collections efficiently. We have well-honed strategies to enforce collection in a dignified manner, recovering funds you are owed while maintaining your reputation for professionalism and integrity.

Corporate Disputes 

Our business law team is also adept at settling all of the following, often through negotiations alone. You can depend, however, on our strong litigation tactics if it is necessary to take your case to trial.

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Business oppression cases


Unfair Competition 

We know that businesses are difficult enough to manage when everyone plays fair, and that unfair competition can seriously threaten your profit margin. If you are faced with the illegal behavior of another party involving any of the following, we have the leverage to successfully fight:

  • Infringements of intellectual property
  • Tortious interference with business relationships
  • Violations of non-compete agreements

We are also highly competent in defending you against false allegations.

Collection Cases

Our Miami Business Litigation Attorneys Help You Navigate the Justice System

Legal pathways that may be overwhelming and cumbersome to you are routine to our practiced business litigation attorneys. We will guide you through whichever procedures are necessary, including:

  • Motions
  • Discovery
  • Administrative hearings
  • Arbitration
  • Mediation
  • Trial
  • Appeal

You will find any and all of these procedures to be far less tension-producing and intimidating with one of our business law attorneys at your side. Moreover, we will always give you a true estimate of the cost of our services, as well as a fair appraisal of your chances of success.

Miami Business Statistics

We recognize the pivotal role small businesses play in shaping the U.S. economy.
