Business Litigation

Even in Business, Breaking Up Can Be Hard to Do.

After years of developing and growing your business, there’s change in the wind. And it’s time to batten down the hatches. Success and especially longevity can bring good times and bad for a business—and the bad, unfortunately, can include things like civil litigation—such as breach of contract, fraud or negligence claims—and other forms of commercial disputes.

Maybe a strategic partner has decided he or she can no longer honor existing agreements, responsibilities or obligations. Perhaps you’re being sued by a vendor or customer. The bottom line is, business disputes happen. And while they may (or may not) be inevitable, it doesn’t mean you can’t approach them in a smart, civil and productive manner.

If business disagreements are escalating or someone’s threatened to bring suit, find out your options and see where you stand in the eyes of the law. At Nexio, we’re here to help you assess legal situations and craft effective, comprehensive, best-for-you strategies that will allow you to resolve your business differences, move on and resume life.

Whether through direct negotiation, arbitration or litigation, Nexio attorneys have a proven track record of achieving success for clients involved in business litigation and disputes. Let us help you with:

  • Breach of contract

  • Breach of fiduciary duty

  • Breach of joint venture agreements

  • Tortious interference with contract and/or economic advantage

  • Fraud and embezzlement

  • Shareholder, partnership and membership disputes

  • False, deceptive, and/or unfair business practices

  • Collections and money disputes

When it comes to business disputes and the lawsuits that can accompany them, the quicker you move, the better. Because the sooner you know your exposure and your options, the easier it is to make the best decisions for your business—and start putting the whole ordeal behind you.

What’s more, getting expert legal advice can significantly reduce litigation costs, not to mention time, energy and heartache.
