Business litigation, also commonly referred to as commercial litigation, involves various disputes that can arise in a business setting. A few examples would include disputes between partners, breach of contract, class actions, patent infringements, business torts, anti-trust litigation, and many other areas. Business litigation can also occur in several different venues, from federal and state courts to administrative hearings as well as private arbitrations. The litigation venue used depends on different factors and specifics of the case. When considering the broad scope of business litigation, you must seek counsel from a firm specializing in all areas of business law. 

At Bracken Lamberton, we are experts in business law and litigation, and we provide services to businesses in all industries. Some of the most familiar areas of business law that we specialize in include:

Breach of Contract

Within any corporate setting, agreements and contracts are entered into almost daily. As such, it is exceedingly likely that a breach of contract will eventually arise in your business. A contract should be well written and provide remedies for a potential breach. When a breach of contract does occur, the provisions regarding breach will prevail in terms of liability, legal jurisdiction, arbitration, mediation, etc. However, not every contract dispute can be cured easily.

At Bracken Lamberton, we negotiate commercial agreements and contracts, and we handle all aspects of litigation for breach of contract. Some breach of contract services that we provide include:

  • Commercial B2B Contracts
  • Intellectual Property Related Licenses and Agreements
  • Buy-Sell Agreements
  • Maintenance Agreements
  • Manufacturing Agreements
  • Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Employment Agreements
  • Financing Agreements
  • Information Technology Contracts
  • Reseller Contracts

Breach of contract claims are usually only one type of claim being asserted within a larger business dispute. As such, your business will require attorneys that have experience in a vast range of commercial and business-related disputes.

Primary contract breaches include:

  • Minor Breach of Contract
  • Anticipatory Breach of Contract
  • Material Breach of Contract
  • Fundamental or Actual Breach of Contract

At Bracken Lamberton, we are highly experienced in handling all complex cases involving breach of contract and have a comprehensive understanding of business law and litigation. 

Fraud Disputes

Corporate fraud can occur through either misrepresentation or deception. Additionally, fraud may occur in varying contexts such as employee fraud, business fraud, fraud in the sale or purchasing of services or goods, and several other possibilities. Fraud disputes also can include aspects of various areas of law, and your business will require counsel that has a large amount of legal knowledge to help protect you against all possible fraud. 

For example, fraud litigation may include several legal claims and issues from commercial litigation to civil litigation. Such related claims include:

  • Fraudulent Inducement 
  • Misrepresentation
  • Intellectual Property Issues
  • Misrepresentation, Omission, and Non-Disclosure
  • Fraudulent Concealment
  • Fraud by Business Partner
  • Tortious Interference.

When corporate fraud affects your business, business litigation can result in injunctive relief, monetary damages, damage to your business reputation, and potential disgorgement. Once fraud has occurred, as a business owner, you must immediately consult with a reputable and highly experienced corporate attorney. Securing counsel that has broad corporate litigation law experience will ensure that they investigate and identify all issues early so that the case may be handled promptly and properly from the very beginning. Additionally, a restraining order or injunctive relief could be needed to prevent additional damage to your business. 

Every business is susceptible to fraud, and many will encounter a fraud dispute at some point. At Bracken Lamberton, we are well experienced and prepared to handle all business fraud issues that you may encounter. We have also successfully defended and prosecuted corporate fraud litigation matters. Additionally, we will advise on implementing protections against fraud as a proactive approach that will save you money from any later disputes. We will also extend to you the following services to mitigate any potential fraud disputes or litigation:

  • Creation of employment and non-compete, non-disclosure agreements
  • Review of commercial agreements and contracts
  • Corporate governance counseling
  • Due diligence reviews
  • Protection of intellectual property assets. 

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Litigation involving a breach of fiduciary duty may arise from an allegation that an individual, usually a professional, breaches a duty to another person or persons. A fiduciary duty is an established high standard of care, and it requires a certain level of loyalty. As such, a fiduciary has an ethical and legal relationship of trust. To handle issues involving breach of fiduciary duty, you will need an attorney with ample business litigation and business acumen experience to analyze these complex business disputes. 

With breach of fiduciary duty cases, litigation often moves quickly. It may include requests of immediate relief, such as preliminary or temporary injunctions, temporary restraining orders, expedited discovery, and other such prejudgment remedies. As such, your business must obtain counsel that has an understanding and experience of the importance and urgency of these requests to mitigate loss. 

At Bracken Lamberton, we have an understanding of the intricacy of fiduciary responsibilities, and we can assist you by preventing disputes through:

  • Corporate governance consultation
  • Structuring and review of internal corporate agreements
  • Non-disclosure and non-compete agreements
  • Implementation of specific fiduciary agreements.

We will work with you to establish proactive measures that will prevent litigation involving breach of fiduciary duty.
