We Can Handle Various Types of Business Disputes

At Oberheiden P.C., we can represent you and your business in all types of legal issues and disputes. Some of the types of business disputes that we handle include the following:

Breach of Contract

All parties must adhere to specific terms and conditions within any contract. While signing these contracts is often a formality, all sides must live up to those outlined terms. Typically, when the contract uses vague language or has unclear phrasing, it can lead to disputes, including allegations of breaching an agreement.

At Oberheiden P.C., our law firm can assist on both sides of these issues. Whether you need to enforce certain agreements or have been accused of a breach, our experienced business litigation attorneys will look closely at all signed contracts and agreements. We always take an individualized approach to protect your business and interests.

Business Fraud

Any type of business fraud accusation is serious and will require legal representation. Often, plaintiffs try to hold executives and business owners personally liable for their losses, which means the courts could use your assets and property to pay off those debts. Also, a fraud case can severely damage your business’s reputation. When you first hear about an allegation of fraud, reach out to a skilled business litigation team for guidance. Oberheiden P.C. has defended thousands of businesses against these accusations of fraud.

Employment Litigation

Employment litigation can be challenging to understand. Many of these issues involve former employees filing lawsuits against businesses for wage discrepancies, discrimination, or other grievances. When facing this type of litigation, make sure to seek the assistance of an experienced business litigation law firm. At Oberheiden P.C., we have successfully represented clients in employment litigation issues, ranging from non-compete agreement enforcement to wrongful termination claims. Our legal team will develop a solid strategy to help protect the interests of your company.

Infringement and Misappropriation of Intellectual Property

Oberheiden P.C. understands that any intellectual property is valuable to a business. These properties are some of the business’s most valuable assets. Litigation involving intellectual property is a serious matter. You need representation from skilled attorneys who have successfully handled these cases. Our business litigation lawyers help you navigate these complex cases, including issues with trade secrets, copyrights, patents, trademarks, and proprietary information.

Shareholder, Partner, and Member Disputes

The legal team at Oberheiden P.C. is composed of knowledgeable business litigation attorneys with experience working with these matters. They have reached successful resolutions in many cases without heading to the courtroom. We can help everyone achieve a mutually beneficial solution in these high-stakes disputes.

At Oberheiden P.C., we always take a continuous look at your case. Our team will evaluate and re-evaluate all the aspects to ensure you have the strongest argument tailored to meet the legal circumstances in the case. Some of the most common issues we handle include the following:

Frequently Asked Questions About Business Litigation

What Are the Potential Outcomes in These Cases?

 

Many plaintiffs will seek different remedies in these legal matters, but most want to be awarded monetary damages. Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the plaintiff for losses in a breach of contract or other civil wrongdoing. Liquidated damages are often substituted for compensatory damages in these contract-involved claims. Some special damages can go beyond the direct losses from a business tort or contract claim. Occasionally, punitive damages are also available, though plaintiffs frequently add punitive damages to their complaint to give themselves leverage in settlement negotiations. Finally, attorneys’ costs and fees are typically covered by each party, but exceptions exist.

Can You Settle a Business Dispute Without Going To Court?

 

In many cases, these disputes are settled out of court or without the need to file a lawsuit. Usually, both parties want to find an amicable resolution to their conflicts. For that reason, there is a higher out-of-court settlement percentage involving business litigation cases than other types of claim. At Oberheiden P.C., our experienced lawyers have helped many clients reach these settlements. However, remember that some cases go to trial, and you need to prepare for the possibility of taking your case before a judge or jury. Our legal team understands those scenarios, and we will actively develop the strongest legal strategy for your business dispute. Every case is unique, with special circumstances surrounding each disagreement. Whether you can reach a settlement or not will depend on your particular legal issue.

Is My Business Dispute Subjected To Mandatory Mediation or Arbitration?

 

In some cases, you may have an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) clause in your contract. With that, all parties have agreed to use the services of a third party to resolve their disagreement. These alternative methods are used instead of litigation, and they can provide a better solution for all parties engaged in a dispute.

Depending on the terms of your contract, taking your dispute to court may not be possible. Both parties must generally pursue these alternative actions when a contract stipulates these resolution methods. Mandatory alternative dispute resolution clauses will make exceptions for specific activities or claims in some situations. Hiring a skilled business litigation firm will help you determine what legal resolutions are required or available to you.

Will These Litigation Issues Become Public Record?

 

Generally, a lawsuit filed in federal or state court can end up in public records. For that reason, many would-be litigators might not pursue a legal claim. However, there are options for businesses that need to protect their proprietary or confidential information during litigation. One option is to file under seal. Once the litigation process begins, all parties will have a shared interest to avoid any public disclosure or publicity in the case. If that is the situation with your business, our senior attorneys have methods to ensure your information is protected by seeking confidential treatment in court.
