What Business Litigation Services Do We Handle?
At Phillips Law Group, some of the business litigation services commonly represented by our firm include:
- Breach of contract – When one or both parties fail to honor the terms of a binding agreement, it could be cause for legal action.
- Landlord/Tenant disputes – Rental property disputes between a tenant and landlord are often emotionally charged and frustrating for all parties involved. This type of dispute may involve charges from either party, including non-payment of rent, poor property maintenance issues, damage to property, holdover after end of lease, illegal eviction and breach of privacy.
- Contract disputes – When two parties solidify a business agreement, disputes may later arise regarding the terms of the contract– or its validity. This is especially true with a verbal or “handshake” type of agreement.
- Shareholder disputes – Disagreements among company shareholders may surface about corporate financial management, along with other important details that affect the management of a company, including its governance or general operations.
- Franchise disputes – Although franchise disputes often happen because of a breach of contract, other concerns, like trademark violations, false advertising or failure to adhere to company policies, can also happen. Additionally, because there is often a third party involved, the terms of agreement may be subject to both state and federal laws. The complex nature of this type of business litigation often requires an experienced litigation attorney to help bring a dispute to a satisfactory resolution.
- Construction contract disputes – There are various reasons why this type of dispute occurs, including a failure by the contractor to comply with the originally agreed-upon project, exceeding the budget or unexplained project delays.
- Trademark/Copyright disputes – The use or copying of any intellectual or branded property that happens without the permission of the owner, such as the right to reproduce, distribute or display the property, is considered copyright infringement.
Having a licensed business litigation lawyer representing your best interests and attending to any critical issue of your dispute can help free you up to focus on the day-to-day business concerns.
Are Verbal Agreements Legally Binding in Arizona?
While a written contract is typically the best way to ensure all parties have an agreed upon understanding that protects both parties interests, there are some verbal agreements that may also be considered as legally binding. Arizona state law outlines the types of contracts that fall under the statute of frauds that are only valid if in writing. See ARS Section 44-101 for full details.
It is worth noting that in any verbal or “handshake” agreement that is deemed as legally binding, the burden of proof is on the party demanding adherence to the original terms of the agreement.
