Superior Legal Representation Gives You the Upper Hand in Miami Business Disputes
Beyond being time-consuming and unpleasant, business disputes interrupt the efficient operation of your company and may endanger not only your profit margin but the very existence of your enterprise. This is why it is critical to have an excellent business dispute lawyer at your side to meet the challenges presented by:
If your company provides goods and services to customers, you are always at risk of being confronted by claims of personal injury resulting from defective or dangerous products. Some of these may lead to class-action lawsuits. Also, if your business is visited by customers, clients, delivery people, vendors, or others, it is vulnerable to claims of premises liability involving slip and falls or other types of personal injuries. In either case, our business dispute attorneys will fight aggressively to protect your interests.
All Florida workplaces must adhere to federal and state laws designed to protect employees from unfair treatment. Business disputes that arise among your staff may include claims of discrimination or harassment, wage and hour violations, retaliation, and wrongful termination. Our Coral Gables, Miami-Dade County, Miami Beach, and Miami business dispute lawyers are well-versed in federal and Florida laws concerning these matters and are ready to prosecute or defend employment disputes of all kinds.
Breach of contract
Breach of contract claims arise when one party fails to meet its contractual obligations. Such disputes can be complicated, often depending on an interpretation of legal language or an analysis of legal intent. This makes it essential to have a clear-headed business dispute attorney fighting for you. Our South Florida and Miami business dispute lawyers have an exceptional eye for detail and a talent for clarifying contracts and resolving business disputes.
Fraud occurs when one party intentionally deceives the other with false statements or through the omission of salient information during a business transaction. Whether you are the victim of fraudulent misconduct or accused of being its perpetrator, Perez Mayoral has the experience and forceful strategies to prosecute the offending party or defend you from allegations of fraud in state or federal court.
Partnership business disputes
Very few partnerships escape all disputes. Most disputes involve  which partner has more control  the goal or direction of the business moving forward or  financial or cash flow issues or matters of ownership. Our business dispute attorneys have the legal tactics and diplomatic skills to resolve partnership disputes through negotiation, or if need be, through litigation.
Shareholder business disputes
Shareholder disputes can be intrusive and difficult to resolve, especially because of the number of individuals involved. These disputes may involve accusations of misappropriation of company funds, fiduciary breaches, or other misconduct. On the other hand, they may concern differing business strategies and varying opinions about what is best for the company. In any case, you require the services of a capable business dispute attorney to straighten things out.
Director and officer liability
Our business dispute attorneys regularly provide a defense to directors and officers who are facing charges of corporate misconduct. If you have been accused of breach of fiduciary duty, waste of corporate assets, or usurpation of corporate opportunities, we will advise you concerning your rights and work hard to protect your interests.
When one person intentionally causes economic harm to another by damaging the latter’s business relationships with a third party, the offense is known as tortious interference. Though tortious interference usually occurs in multi-party contracts, it can arise in other contests. Whenever it does, you will need one of our well-informed business dispute attorneys to resolve the situation in a way favorable to your company.
