Common Examples of Complex Commercial Litigation
A broad range of lawsuits may threaten to derail your business, but fortunately, the sharp attorneys at Griffin Durham Tanner Clark have the well-crafted defense strategies necessary to defend you from any of the following claims:
Fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain, or to deprive a victim of a legal right. Examples of business fraud include making untrue statements to customers, business partners, or the employer; misuse of company assets, and employee misconduct.
Breach of fiduciary duty occurs when an individual or company betrays a client, co-owner, shareholder, or the company. This betrayal happens when the individual responsible for acting in the best interests of another instead chooses to profit for their own interests.
Breach of Contract is self-explanatory. All sorts of contracts may be breached, including those that:
- Fail to provide goods or services as agreed
- Violate a non-compete agreement
- Fail to share profits
Theft of trade secrets (economic espionage) is a serious threat to a business’s stability. Trade secrets include any original methodology or formulas on which production and profitability are based, including patterns, plans, programs, designs, prototypes, techniques, processes, procedures, or codes that have intentionally been kept confidential. Trade secrets may be tangible or intangible, and may be compilations or stored graphic, photographic, written, or electronic information.
Business Torts include, among other misconduct: injurious falsehood, unfair competition, negligent misrepresentation, and conspiracy — any of which are designed to damage a business in terms of reputation, loss of clientele, and loss of profit.
Internal Investigations may be the result of a whistleblower, sometimes motivated by a desire to protect him-or-herself from prosecution by being a cooperating witness, and sometimes enticed by the notion of a whistleblower lawsuit in which the whistleblower stands to win a percentage of the recovered funds.
Partnership Disputes may occur when one partner wants to sell the business and the other does not, or when one partner simply wants to dissolve the partnership. Though such disputes may be resolved through negotiation or arbitration, if your partner sues you, our attorneys are fully prepared to defend you in court.
Commercial disputes are the lawsuits arising out of transactions among merchants, bankers, and traders during the course of mercantile transactions. Though commercial disputes may be complicated, you can depend on our complex business litigation attorneys to provide you with the best possible defense for your particular case.
