A National Business Litigation Law Firm Serving Clients in Colorado Springs, CO
The experienced litigators at Oberheiden P.C. will assist companies and businesses in Colorado Springs and in the general Colorado area with any business litigation. We are proud of our background in civil court, covering all kinds of disputes.
Our firm is also staffed with multiple investigators and former federal officials, whose expert knowledge regarding business disputes provides incredible insight into the various pitfalls and opportunities that present themselves in these situations. Alongside our many experienced litigators, our in-house team is able to develop strategies specifically designed to protect our clients.
The Types of Business Disputes We Will Handle
There are many different issues that can lead to some form of litigation when it comes to businesses. However, most of these stem from some specific core issues. Our law firm will represent clients and business owners in the following kinds of disputes:
1. Partnership Disputes
A company’s prosperity and viability can be irreparably harmed by disputes between partners. In extreme cases, the business can be brought to ruin by these disagreements. Partnership disputes need to be resolved as soon as possible; otherwise, they may result in chaotic consequences for the business as a whole, its employees, and its clientele.
In this particular scenario, our litigators will need to review the partnership agreement for answers to some key questions. Firstly, does the agreement provide a solution to the problem, or offer some other means of coming up with a solution? Does it grant the opportunity for a partner to protect their investment and/or partnership? If these questions can be answered, then everyone in this scenario knows where they stand before an amicable resolution can take place.
It’s in most people’s best interest to resolve the situation informally and privately, away from the public’s gaze. If it’s possible, then our law firm will work with our clients and pursue a solution outside of civil courts so the matter can be settled with costs kept to an absolute minimum. However, if the situation demands it, our business litigation firm will pursue our client’s interests in Colorado state court.
2. Shareholder Disputes
These disputes are similar to the previous kind of disputes. They do, however, include many intricacies because of how corporate structure is formed. Our clients can rely on us to represent them in disputes involving specific shareholders, in addition to shareholder derivative litigation targeted at the alleged wrongdoings of board members or corporate executives.
Our firm will work with the client to find a positive solution in shareholder disputes that involve the owners of public and private companies. We have a long history of negotiating solutions informally through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) meetings as well as in all stages of state and federal trial litigation.
3. Employment Disputes
Disputes involving employees demand a thorough examination of many different legal considerations. Employees have certain rights afforded to them by Colorado and federal law. This means that we must fully understand the claims made by the employee(s) if a favorable outcome is to be expected. It’s not wise for the company to act hastily unless they are aware of all the facts that are pertinent to this specific case.
Whether the allegations are of hiring undocumented workers, discrimination claims, or lawsuits about wrongful termination, our litigators are able to represent any employer in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We will handle lawsuits in state and federal court. In addition, we also handle administrative proceedings before the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC).
4. Customer Disputes
A company should, by all means, protect itself against claims made by customers, but these situations come with their own unique set of problems. The company can attempt to seek a solution that will appease the customer and resolve the situation amicably. Alternatively, the company might sue for damages. It’s not immediately clear which approach is the best; this is why the company owner needs our legal counseling.
At Oberheiden P.C., we handle all cases of customer litigation. We will represent our clients in cases where they initiate a dispute or the dispute is initiated by one of their customers. Before taking the necessary legal steps to protect our clients, we will work with them to make strategic decisions that will ensure a favorable outcome. Of course, this outcome will be different depending on the nature of each individual case. This is why we ensure our clients have all the information they need before making a crucial decision.
5. Breach of Contract
It’s often the case that both contractual parties will have reason to allege that the other party underperformed in their duties or obligations. Breach of contract disputes may include a multitude of different scenarios, like disputes over the other party’s intent, their contractual rights, regarding specific contract provisions, and more. The two sides may solve their differences via the use of ADR, or they might opt to take the fight to court. Either way, coming up with a litigation strategy involves a clear understanding of the legal implications.
Above are the five kinds of disputes that are most likely to be encountered. In reality, there are many other types of legal issues that businesses and business owners may face at some point. Other common causes for business litigation include, but are not limited to:
- Misappropriation of trade secrets
- Breach of payment
- Breach of representations, warranties, and indemnity obligations
- Wrongful interference with business opportunities and relationships
- Infringement on intellectual property
- Breach of confidentiality
- Bank, consumer, and securities fraud
- Franchise and antitrust disputes
- Disputes resulting from business mergers and acquisitions
This list is not exhaustive. We advise you to get in touch with us if you or your business face some form of legal dispute. We will assist you in understanding your options and what your next step forward should be.
