Business Litigation Attorneys
What is Business Litigation?
Business litigation law involves disputes arising out of business and commercial related transactions of a non-criminal nature. Business litigation law consists of numerous scenarios involving a myriad of different types of legal issues.
We represent individuals, employees, and businesses affected by disputes involving:
- Non-Compete Agreements
- Trade Secrets
- Professional Liability
- Employment Agreements
- Intellectual Property
No matter what business you are in, at some point, you will run into a dispute, whether it is with a business partner, employee, or another company. While many of these issues can be resolved outside of the courtroom, you may want the guidance of a business litigation lawyer to protect your rights during the process.
Contracts are often at the heart of business disputes, where millions of dollars can be decided on the turn of a single word or the placement of a comma. From deals made on a handshake or the back of a cocktail napkin, and deals that fill multiple notebooks our attorneys have seen them all. Whether it’s an individual, a small business, or a large company, our attorneys can tackle contract disputes with strategic awareness, creative thinking, and an understanding beyond simply reading words on a page.
A non-compete agreement is a covenant between an employee and employer that stops the employee from using the skills and information learned during employment to enter into competition with the employer. Typically, by signing the non-compete agreement, the employee agrees not to enter into businesses or markets that are in direct or indirect competition with the employer within a specified geographical location for a specified period of time.
The lawyers at Allen & Nolte assist clients in developing programs for protecting trade secrets and managing risks, counsel clients to avoid being named as a defendant in trade secret claims, and enforce and defend trade secret claims on behalf of our clients.
Providers of professional services can find themselves in disputes with clients and others who claim damages allegedly caused by their service's failure to meet expectations or the legal standard of care. Even when these claims have little or no merit, professional firms must pay for a defense against such allegations and may even find that a settlement is preferable to the uncertainty and expense of protracted litigation.
