We Litigate all Manners of Business Disputes
Our Fort Worth business litigation team stands ready to handle all types of business disputes. Matters that our team has successfully litigated in the past include (but are not limited to):
Shareholder, Partner, and Member Disputes
Owning and managing a business is hard enough when everyone gets along. Things can get messy very quickly when friction develops between partners. We have successfully handled a broad array of disputes between shareholders, partners, and members of limited liability companies. We’ve represented both businesses and individual owners and managers, consistently achieving favorable results that protect our clients’ interests.
Disputes between owners are uniquely delicate, and therefore require a particularly careful approach. Our Fort Worth business litigation attorneys have the knowledge and skills to handle these matters tactfully and effectively.
Oberheiden P.C. represents businesses in a wide variety of industries in all manners of contract disputes. The thousands of cases we’ve already seen enable us to offer timely advice to our clients on all their options when it comes to litigating a contract dispute. Our business litigation team has achieved successful outcomes for our clients both by settlement and by trying cases to verdict in nearly all areas of business litigation. Just a few of these areas include:
- Performance and payment issues;
- Confidentiality, Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation agreements;
- Warranty disputes;
- Insurance and indemnification matters;
- License disputes; and
- Alternative dispute resolution
Intellectual Property Disputes
Business litigation disputes are beginning to center more and more around intellectual property. Infringements on businesses’ intellectual property are especially worrisome because they often go to the very core of a company’s business model. Companies, therefore, must act quickly to vindicate their intellectual property rights and protect the ideas that are rightfully theirs. We have successfully litigated intellectual property matters with respect to:
- Proprietary information;
- Trade secrets; and
Hacking, Privacy, and Corporate Espionage
Corporate espionage is not a new concept, but modern corporate spies are leveraging technology to its fullest extent to gain an unfair competitive advantage. Hackers target companies with incredible precision, and even the smallest vulnerabilities can cause substantial loss. For this reason, swift legal action against hackers and corporate spies is key to mitigating damage and preventing further loss down the road.
Our business litigation team also has the knowledge and skills to develop a comprehensive data breach response plan and help our clients comply with relevant data privacy laws and regulations. With Oberheiden P.C., you can trust that your business’s finances, data, and public trust are secure.
Business Fraud Cases
Fraud is a complex legal doctrine with an extensive and detailed framework, despite its conceptual simplicity. Accordingly, you need a team of experienced litigation attorneys to successfully prosecute a fraud claim on your business’s behalf or, likewise, to defend your business from a claim of fraud. Our business litigation team has extensive experience both prosecuting and defending fraud claims in the banking, consumer, corporate, and insurance sectors.
Tortious Interference Claims
Tortious interference is essentially when a person or business uses a third party to cause harm to your business by intentionally interfering with your business’s contracts. These cases, therefore, require painstakingly detailed investigations, and it often takes periods of prolonged discovery to find the evidence necessary to prove the claim. Our business litigation team consists of both former federal prosecutors and federal investigators with the experience to know where to look to find relevant information and the skills to find it quickly and cost-effectively.
Employment litigation is a creature in and of itself in the world of business litigation. Companies have certain rights with respect to the employer-employee relationship, which they are entitled to enforce. But companies must also remain vigilant in the age of social media to enforce their rights tactfully and in a way that does not hurt morale within the company.
Our business litigation attorneys have extensive experience defending companies from both state and federal employment claims, ranging from worker’s compensation to ownership of intellectual property to employment discrimination and unlawful termination.
We also regularly represent companies before relevant state and federal agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Texas Workforce Commission. So regardless of the forum in which your business needs to litigate, you can count on the attorneys at Oberheiden P.C. to set your company up for success.
Securities and Antitrust
Issuing securities is a major source of raising capital for many companies, but it can also carry substantial litigation exposure. Likewise, antitrust claims can stop a growing company’s aspirations in their tracks.
At Oberheiden P.C., we have successfully represented clients in private litigation to defend and enforce their rights against investors and third parties. We have also successfully defended clients against federal and state enforcement actions. So, whether your company needs advice on regulatory compliance or needs to defend itself in proceedings before the Securities Exchange Commission or other government regulator, our business litigation attorneys have the knowledge and skills to protect your business now and position it for long-term success.
