What Our Business Litigation Lawyer Will Do to Help
In the course of running a business, conflicts are inevitable. Many such conflicts can be settled with little disruption if both parties are flexible and act in good faith. Unfortunately, however, a fair number of such disputes end up in the courtroom.
Once you become a client of Perez Mayoral, our business litigation lawyers will take the burden off your shoulders. The services we provide include:
- Reviewing the details of your case
- Handling all communications with opposing attorneys
- Applying our legal knowledge of state and federal laws to your situation
- Researching any relevant legal precedents
- Making certain that your confidentiality is protected
- Engaging in sharp negotiations and/or aggressive litigation
Whether your dispute involves a business partner, contractor, shareholder or employee, we are committed to resolving that dispute as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, always working in your best interests.
Types of Business Litigation Our Practice Handles
Our business litigation lawyers are experienced in a wide range of matters, including 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:
- The existence of a valid and enforceable contract
- Proof that you performed according to the terms of the contract
- Proof that the other party failed to meet the terms of the contract
- 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
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.
Our 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
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.
Our Business Litigation Attorney 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:
- Administrative hearings
You will find any and all of these procedures to be far less tension-producing and intimidating with one of our talented 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.
