When There is a Business Dispute About Money
No one ever wants to get tied up in a lawsuit, but it can happen more quickly than you think, especially when it comes to business matters about money. Whether you are a business or property owner, you have a lot of responsibilities to manage as well as stakeholders to consider. Those who have a vested interest in the business operations are often the most likely to be involved in a business dispute involving money.
When disputes arise, your best course of action is to consult with an attorney immediately. By acting early, there may be strategies that enable us at Jacobs Legal to help you avoid commercial litigation [https://www.jakelegal.com/miami-commercial-litigation-lawyer/] in a Florida court, which can save you time and money.
What Types of Business Disputes Call for Commercial Litigation?
Business disputes take many forms, but the most common cases we at Jacobs Legal handle include the following:
- Shareholder and partnership disputes
- Breach of contract and contract interpretation
- Business negligence
- Actions for worthless checks and civil thefts
- Violations of trade secrets and restrictive covenants
- Non-compete clauses and other restrictive covenants on employee contracts
- Business disputes
- Fraudulent transactions
- Employment disputes
- Commercial and residential lease disputes, including commercial land development agreements
When the dispute involves money (which, don’t they always?), engaging an attorney early may mean resolving issues outside of the courtroom, such as by pursuing an aggressively negotiated settlement or closed-door arbitration hearings.
The Best Defense is Not Always About the Facts
Facts matter. And yet, there is so much more to a commercial dispute than just good facts. It’s about creating strong themes for the case right from the start. A well-packaged theme that outlines the story of the case is effective at every step of the process, and especially at trial, if needed.
At Jacobs Legal, we take our responsibility to our clients very seriously and aggressively fight to reach the best possible outcome for each of our clients. If you need legal advice for your commercial litigation concerns, please get in touch with us right away.
