Disagreements in business are unavoidable. But how you handle a business dispute can have a long- term effect on your bottom line.
If you are unable to resolve your dispute, be wise and seek out representation by a skilled Dallas business attorney. Your livelihood is at stake.
Do not delay in securing the advice you need to smooth your way and avoid financial ruin. When you become embroiled in a business dispute, you can easily turn your attention away from your business and spend inordinate amounts of time trying to fix the situation. The constant stress can take a toll both financially and physically. An experienced attorney can take some of the stress out of the situation by negotiating for you. If all else fails, your business attorney knows how to take your matter to court and fight aggressively for you.
Types of business disputes
Business disputes can occur no matter what type of entity you form, and no matter what type of business you run. Corporate and partnership disputes ranging from breach of contract to tort claims can occur. Partners can bicker over partnership agreements, shareholders can argue about profits to be distributed, and investors can challenge corporate practices. When you need help with a dispute, seek out attorneys who have extensive experience and in-depth knowledge in this area of law. An experienced business attorney will do everything possible to settle your business dispute without going to court. Besides being a topnotch litigator, your attorney should be able to advise you on the advisability of using alternative dispute resolution methods that include mediation and arbitration.
Business disputes can be internal or external. Internal disputes are those that deal with disagreements among partnerships or shareholders. External disputes are those that deal with third parties such as lenders, vendors, and competitors.
Some common business disputes include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Breach of contract
- Claims of fraud
- Shareholder disputes
- Lender liability
- Tortious interference with contract
- False, deceptive, unfair trade practices
- Securities regulations
- Copyright and trademark infringement
- Insurance claims
- General contractor/subcontractor disputes
- Failed mergers and acquisitions
- Professional liability
When settlement is not possible, your business attorney will be ready to take your case to court.
