For most companies, it is not a question of if they will become involved in litigation but rather when that will happen. Business and commercial disputes can come from numerous directions–from your competitors, your customers, your vendors, your employees, or even your business partners. Successful preparation for business disputes requires a combination of business experience and business litigation expertise.

Concerning the terms, tenure, and/or conditions of employment. Usually dealing with disagreements with benefits, organizational procedures, hours worked, and pay.

The ending of a company and/or partnership where the contracts are unaffected and all parties/partners are liable for their obligations and are entitled to all their rights.

A disagreement or the breach of obligations between two or more business partners, which normally can result in harm to the business’s reputation, profits, and/or growth.
