Albuquerque Business Litigation Lawyer
When it comes to business disputes, issues can be very complex and varied. These issues might also have a wide range of consequences. This is why you must make sure you are backed by professionals during the process. Our experienced attorneys based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are here to protect your interests and to make sure you won’t face unnecessary costs or delays in any kind of litigation.
Business disputes are not uncommon. Different types of businesses can face different types of legal risks, but one thing is certain when it comes to any business: whether you are running a startup or you are the CEO of a publicly traded company in New Mexico, you’ll most likely deal with different issues with legal implications regularly.
While some of these issues will not materialize, others will lead to disputes. Disputes might be internal, between partners and shareholders, as well as with third parties, meaning that they also may involve employees, counterparts, and competitors. But what should you do when you are faced with a business dispute? Ideally you’ll be able to make informed and strategic decisions that will avoid unnecessary costs and mitigate potential liabilities. You might be able to turn the dispute into an opportunity, which is something many try to do but only a few can achieve in the end. The wrong approach can leave companies close to insolvency.
Because it is difficult to know what kind of decision to take without a professional backing you, you should ensure you get an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer who can provide the right advice and support you and your interests throughout the process. That’s why you should consider the lawyers at Oberheiden P.C.

We Handle All Types of Business Disputes
Business disputes are known to be quite different and complex. Despite the variety of disputes that exist, most involve several main issues. Here are some of the most common types of business disputes we usually deal with when representing businesses, business owners, and other clients in litigations:
1. Partnership Disputes
These kinds of disputes are between partners and limited liability companies. These disputes can be disruptive and even threaten the enterprise’s viability. They must be resolved quickly—fundamental disagreements over the company’s direction or financial management can cause direct negative consequences for clients, customers, and employees.
When it comes to partnership disputes, one of the first things to do is review the partnership agreement. It might provide a resolution or specify a way to seek resolution. Also, it might provide remedies for a partner to invoke to protect the partnership or their investment.
Before initiating attempts at informal dispute resolution, you should be able to find as much information as you can about the agreement.
In most cases, it will be most beneficial for everyone to resolve the dispute informally. This can help you keep costs down and also keep the dispute private. We help our clients find leverage and common ground even when no formal litigation is involved, working diligently to ensure a friendly result that is in line with our client’s interests. However, we won’t hesitate to pursue appropriate claims in the New Mexico state court when necessary.
2. Shareholder Disputes
Shareholder disputes are, in many aspects, similar to partnership disputes. Due to the nature of the corporate structure, these disputes often present additional complexities. Our team of attorneys is trained to represent clients in disputes between individual shareholders and to target alleged wrongs by corporate executives or board members. We strive for positive outcomes in such disputes and have a long history of handling negotiations and alternative dispute resolutions as well as federal trials.
3. Employment Disputes
In such disputes, achieving favorable results requires careful thought about different practical considerations. You need to determine the claims the employees have made against the company. Employees have a number of rights under the New Mexico law as well as federal law, which means that companies should avoid rushing to judgment when facing employee lawsuits.
Our attorneys represent employers in all types of disputes while also handling administrative proceedings before the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission and the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions.
4. Customers Disputes
Disputes involving customers and clients can also present unique challenges. Making the right decision in such a situation can make a difference in your long-term strategy. With the assistance of legal counsel, you may be able to protect your company’s financial interests while keeping the customer relationship intact.
Here at Oberheiden P.C., we represent companies in all types of litigation, even those initiated by our clients or by their customers. We are here to assist our clients in making strategic decisions, and we can take appropriate legal action when needed. Also, we are firm believers of transparency, and we ensure our clients get the information and the insights they need to make informed decisions.
5. Breach of Contract
Claims involving breach of contract can come with a variety of issues and might lead to a variety of scenarios. Most of the time, both parties have grounds for alleging performance deficiencies. Such disputes can result in the parties going to court immediately, meaning that developing a contract litigation strategy requires an informed approach that can only be achieved when backed by the right team.
While the list above includes five of the most common types of business disputes, the reality is that many disputes can lead to litigation between contracting parties, competitors, and other businesses. Some other examples include:
- Antitrust and franchise disputes
- Issues with confidentiality
- Breach of noncompetition and non-solicitation
- Breach of payment or performance obligations
- Breach of warranties
- Situations involving the misappropriation of trade secrets
- Intellectual property infringement
- Disputes over business mergers and acquisitions
