Additionally, our business clients oftentimes have issues that benefit from our counseling regarding other areas in which we are knowledgeable, such as securities litigation, legal malpractice, construction disputes, intellectual property disputes, and real property disputes.
Resolution of Business Disputes
We thoroughly assess our clients’ goals, the facts, and the relevant legal authority in every matter to fashion an appropriate remedy for our clients, which may include the recovery of money damages, the recovery of real or personal property, an injunction, specific performance, rescission of a contract, a declaratory judgment as to the meaning or interpretation of a contractual provision, a business accounting, the appointment of a receiver to manage a business, or a successful defense against unwarranted claims. We effectively and efficiently use our litigation experience to achieve favorable results for our clients, whether by settlement, trial, or pre-trial dismissal or judgment. Once lawsuits and other disputes are resolved, we continue to help our clients as needed with enforcement of their settlement agreements and collection of their judgments, including the pursuit of assets that have been fraudulently conveyed.
