Business Litigation Disputes Our Firm Handles
For nearly three decades, our firm has helped many individuals and businesses overcome legal challenges. We are prepared to handle numerous business and commercial disputes, including but not limited to:
Breach of Contract
In a legally binding document, both parties agree to fulfill the terms of the contract. When one or more parties breach the contract, the other party may be able to recover compensation for any actual losses caused by the breach. A contract could be voided if one party lacks the mental capacity to make reasonable decisions.
If partners or shareholders cannot come to an agreement or have an issue with the way a company is being operated, sometimes legal action must be taken to settle the dispute. This could happen when both parties are unable to make decisions involving contracts, customers or other essential parts of the business.
These disputes generally arise when employees file claims against their employers for wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination and creating a hostile work environment. Not properly compensating workers for their time on the job, including overtime or earned tips, could also result in a company being sued for wages.
Disputes between landlords and tenants can happen when there are issues with lease agreements, such as property repairs, rent or eviction. Discrimination by landlords based on race, color, sex, religion or national origin could also be grounds for a lawsuit.
Intellectual Property Disputes
A company’s intellectual property is essential to its overall success. Disputes often happen due to disclosure of trade secrets, copyright infringement, and the use of trademarks and patents without permission. When intellectual property rights are violated, it can cause a great deal of financial issues for the company.
The consultation with a Peoria business litigation attorney from our firm is free of charge.

What Business Owners Should Know About Verbal Contracts
Contract disputes involving verbal agreements may be upheld in court if the parties involved are able to prove their side. However, proving the terms of this type of agreement in court could be challenging.
In Arizona, certain types of contracts must meet a set of specific criteria in accordance with the state’s statute of frauds. Some written memorandum of the agreement must exist, but that does not mean that the entire contract must be in writing. Things written electronically like emails may even satisfy the requirement.
The writing must also be signed by the party that is demanding these terms of agreement be met, or by someone authorized by the party to sign on his or her behalf. The legal requirement of a signature could also be interpreted broadly. An email signature or a name typed at the bottom of an email may fulfill the terms.
Benefits of Seeking Legal Representation
There are several benefits to seeking legal representation for your business or commercial disputes. An experienced business litigation lawyer could help provide sound advice to determine whether you may have legal options and inform you about potential legal scenarios so that you can make a knowledgeable decision regarding your business.
Business litigation cases are some of the most complex and time-consuming. Typically, it can take months to years for a case to work its way through the court system, depending on your situation and the parties involved in the dispute. This is why we recommend that you retain the services of a lawyer to ensure that your legal rights and business interests are being protected every step of the way.
