Types of Commercial Litigation Kohan Law Group Handles
Commercial litigation involves legal disputes between businesses, between businesses and individuals, or among individuals within a business entity. Our attorneys are dedicated and determined when it comes to arriving at resolutions that serve your best interests in all of the following areas:
Contract disputes include breach of contract claims and disputes over non-performance. Our commercial litigation attorneys see to it that our clients’ contractual rights are protected when there are conflicting interpretations of contractual terms and that they receive appropriate remedies for contract breaches.
Business torts are wrongful acts against a business, resulting in economic harm: profit loss, reputational damage, market share decline, and/or loss of competitive advantage. Examples of torts include tortious interference, defamation, and unfair competition.
Fraud and Misrepresentation
Fraud and misrepresentation in business transactions involve misconduct in which one party deliberately deceives another. Our legal team has the strength to hold those responsible for such misdeeds accountable. We focus our energy on helping clients who have been victimized by fraudulent actors receive full compensation so their business can undo any damage that has been done.
Deceptive Trade Practices
Deceptive trade practices involve unfair or deceptive acts that harm consumers or other businesses. Our attorneys vigorously advocate for clients who have been harmed by deceptive trade practices. We work hard to hold responsible parties accountable and to recover the maximum damages our clients deserve.
Tortious interference occurs when a third party intentionally interferes with a business transaction or relationship, or with an existing contract. Whether the tortious interference is subtle or blatant, our commercial litigation attorneys will take it on to protect your personal and business interests.
Disagreements between business partners can easily escalate, potentially putting the integrity and profitability of the company at risk. Our commercial litigation attorneys are experts in the art of resolution. Depending on the circumstances, we will work tirelessly to resolve partnership disputes through strategic negotiations, diplomatic mediation or aggressive litigation.
As the name indicates, business divorce describes the complete dissolution of a business relationship. Our lawyers have a good deal of experience guiding clients through the complicated steps of business divorce, each of which presents its own set of challenges. We will assist you with all aspects of disentangling the involved parties by finding the most efficient ways to divide assets, assign debts, and protect intellectual property.
Shareholder disputes are not uncommon, often arising over voting rights, dividend distribution, corporate governance or the wording of shareholder agreements. They must be handled carefully because resulting rifts can have lasting (sometimes dire) consequences for the company.
With more and more legal emphasis on employee rights, employment disputes have become more common. Fortunately, Kohan Law Group has comprehensive knowledge of updated federal and state employment laws so we can represent both employers and employees effectively.
We have extensive experience dealing with employment disputes over claims of:
harassment and discrimination based on race, religion, age, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation, wage and hour disputes, wrongful termination, and retaliation. Whether you are a business owner or employee, we have your back.
We Know Which Method Is Likely To Work Best
At Kohan Law Group, we understand that whatever type of commercial litigation you are confronting, you need practical, cost-effective legal representation, and we are here to provide it. Since no two cases are identical, we will listen carefully to the details of your situation and come up with a workable, efficient method to address it. Depending on the particulars of your case, we we will recommend one of the following as your best course of action, but will always remain flexible in case change becomes necessary:
The nonadversarial process of mediation lends itself to smooth resolution with as little dissension as possible. In this type of resolution, the mediator is a well-trained neutral third party whose goal is to arrive at a solution that satisfies the opposing sides. Our attorneys have the refined negotiation skills to guide you through the process. We know precisely how to navigate so that we meet your goals while arriving at common ground.
Another method of alternative dispute resolution is arbitration. During arbitration, a disinterested third party qualified in this field will hear both sides of the dispute, consider each thoughtfully, and make a binding decision. Our attorneys have represented clients in arbitration proceedings on many occasions so we are practiced in preparing cogent and compelling arguments, accompanied by persuasive evidence, to turn the tide in your favor.
Even with the best of intentions and fulsome preparation, there are times when alternative resolution methods just won’t work. At such times, we are always ready to litigate on your behalf. Courtroom savvy, with a well-earned reputation for convincing arguments, any of our attorneys will be a commanding presence who provides you with a distinctive advantage over opposing counsel.
