Additional Information on Our Business Litigation Services
Commercial and Business Litigation
Commercial and business litigation can arise in numerous scenarios, involving a myriad of different types of legal issues. Our commercial litigation attorneys are experienced representing plaintiffs as well as defendants in federal and state courts. The following are examples of business litigation services we handle.
Fraud can occur in a variety of contexts. For example, business fraud, business relationships, contracts, employee fraud, fraud in purchasing or sale of goods or services, etc. Our fraud attorneys are experienced in a wide range of business fraud issues and have successfully prosecuted as well as defended business litigation cases.
Texas law recognizes that fiduciary duties can arise in many contexts, including principal/agent, employer/employee, partnerships, and business associates. Therefore, breach of fiduciary duty litigation commonly includes claims for fraud and other business torts too. Our business litigation lawyers can advise on fiduciary duty legal issues and handle breach of fiduciary duty litigation cases.
Commercial litigation is a broad category of litigation that encompasses all types of business disputes. Additionally, commercial disputes often arise within the context of commerce and can be among businesses as well as individuals. We represent clients in commercial litigation cases throughout the United States.
Non-compete agreements can include a variety of covenants, from not soliciting business from a former employer’s customers as well as not disclosing confidential information. Upon breach of such agreements, non-compete business litigation can arise.
Contracts take a myriad of different forms, from internal employment to B2B complex commercial agreements. Therefore, handling breach of contract litigation cases requires attorneys with knowledge in the specific industry and type of breach involved. Our business attorneys negotiate contracts and commercial agreements as well as handle all aspects of breach of contract litigation.
Disputes regarding insurance coverage often arise when an insured seeks coverage from a provider. Understanding your insurance policies and the true coverage provided under specific circumstances can be daunting to decipher. Attorneys with an understanding of and experience handling insurance coverage disputes can help businesses in dispute with a third party an/or the insurance provider.
