Most Common Business Disputes Handled by Oberheiden P.C.

As mentioned, there’s no limit to the types of business disputes; however, most of these revolve around a few key issues. Our attorneys each have their own expert knowledge that helps us handle every facet of these disputes. The most common are:

Disputes Between Associates or Partners

A dispute between partners and members of a limited liability company (LLC) are perhaps the most dangerous. These can have serious ramifications for the survivability of your company because of their effects on your clients, customers, and employees. This is why such disputes should be resolved as soon as possible.

The first (and often the best) way to resolve disputes between partners is to look into the partnership agreement. Even if it doesn’t have a direct answer to the issues raised, it will often help you decide how to approach the case. Our experienced litigation experts can identify such clauses to help you protect your company and/or your personal interests.

An informal resolution is generally the best way forward in partnership disputes. It not only cuts down the costs, but also protects your company from negative publicity. That’s why our first approach is to look for common ground between the partners and attempt to resolve the issue amicably. Although we attempt to avoid formal litigation, we’re not reluctant to take your partner to court in Indiana or federal district court if needed.

Disputes Among Shareholders

Shareholder disputes are quite similar to partnership disputes in terms of issues, but they’re generally more complex to handle. We have experience in defending the interests of our clients in cases involving different types of allegations, be it between individual shareholders or shareholder derivative litigation against the company’s board members or senior executives.

Whether you need an informal resolution, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), or litigation in state and/or federal courts, we have the expertise to protect your rights. Our firm has specialists to handle disputes pertaining to private as well as public companies.

Disputes Involving Employees

While dealing with cases involving employees, it’s important to be aware of their rights as per Indiana and federal laws. In addition, any contract signed by the employee and the company has to be studied in detail. Facts in employee disputes shouldn’t be taken at face value; it’s important to read between the lines and gauge the legal implications of your approach before making any moves.

Our litigation experts at Oberheiden P.C. have defended many clients in different types of employment disputes. Whether it’s a case of wrongful suspension, workplace discrimination, or hiring undocumented employees, we’ve done it all. We will tackle litigation cases in federal or state court and handle administrative proceedings with the Indiana Department of Labor (DOL).

Disputes with Customers

Your customers and/or clients can also bring disputes against your company in many different cases. The challenges presented by these disputes are unique; on one hand, you want to protect your company’s interests and image, while on the other hand, you don’t want to lose your customers. The first decision is whether you should sue the client or try to reach an amicable outcome. Our legal counsel can help you in determining the right path through development of a long-term plan for the company.

Oberheiden P.C. is committed to representing companies all over the country in litigations, whether the cases have been initiated by you or your customers. Our sole aim is to protect your interests by providing timely and accurate legal advice and fighting your case in the court of law. A long-term favorable decision in customer disputes can be a complex one and should not be decided before thoroughly understanding the ramifications of your actions.

Disputes Pertaining to Breach of Contract

Contract breach claims can be filed for a host of different issues. In most cases, both the parties may have reasons for doing so. You might face a dispute pertaining to intent, applicability of contract provisions, or contractual rights, or perhaps you are the person looking for justice under the signed contract.

Forming a comprehensive strategy to deal with contractual litigations is important for protecting your best interests while still maintaining a good image. Whether you must use an ADR or move to the court, you need a strategy that includes a thorough understanding of all aspects at hand. Our adept litigation experts have in-depth knowledge of the laws and will help you to make the right decision.

The List Goes On

The above is a list of the top five categories of business disputes that we have handled in the past. However, the list is not comprehensive by any means; there can be various other types of issues in a business that may turn into litigation. Some other common cases of business litigations are:

  • Disputes raising from antitrust
  • Privacy breach disputes
  • Non-solicitation contract breach
  • Inability to perform as expected
  • Inability to pay on time
  • Leaking trade secrets
  • Infringement of rights and opportunities of others
  • Misappropriation of company property
  • Violation of obligations, judgments, and warranties
  • Acquisition-related disputes
  • Fraudulent dealings

Frankly, it’s not possible for a business owner to handle all disputes, especially complicated ones. We urge you to contact our helpline for assistance. Our experienced lawyers are able to protect your interests by taking the best possible course of action.
