What Types of Commercial and Business Litigation Cases Do We Handle?
We handle all forms of commercial litigation in Memphis and the surrounding areas, including:
Many business relationships are formalized with a contract, including commercial leases, licensing deals, buy-sell agreements, loan agreements, and employment contracts, to name just a few. These agreements involve business owners, service providers, commercial tenants, and employees.
If one party violates the contract, the other party may be entitled to compensation. A broken contract may entitle one party to several kinds of damages, including reliance damages, expectation damages, and more depending on the type of contract that was breached. If you have been damaged by a breached contract, we will analyze your agreement and let you know your legal options so you can determine the best way to proceed.
Business Tort Litigation
Business torts are wrongful and illegal acts that cause financial harm to a company. When a professional or business commits such acts against another professional or company, the damaged company may be able to file a business tort claim and recover compensation.
Some of the most common business tort claims include:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Civil theft
- Conversion and unjust enrichment
- Negligent misrepresentation
- Violations of protected property rights
The Business Trial Group handles business tort litigation on a contingency fee basis so business owners can protect their company's bottom line from wrongful business practices without paying burdensome hourly rates.
Construction litigation is fairly common and often complicated. Many Memphis construction litigation cases arise months or even years after a structure is built, when defects that aren’t immediately apparent begin causing problems. Other times, contractors aren’t fully paid for their labor because the client was unhappy with some or all of the work. Regardless of the situation, we employ attorneys who are board-certified in construction and know how to handle your case.
Employment agreements are meticulously drawn up contracts that determine an employee's compensation, benefits, grounds for termination, and more. Disputes involving these agreements can arise when employees feel they’ve been wrongfully terminated or didn’t receive the compensation or benefits stipulated in their contract. With our contingency fee model, employees can afford to take on their employer even if it’s a large corporation with an expensive legal team.
Intellectual Property Litigation
The only people who should make money from an idea are those who originally had the idea. But intellectual property disputes are increasingly difficult to navigate during the information age. Our experienced intellectual property team helps our clients with cases involving:
- Trademark disputes
- Trade secret disputes
- Cyberprivacy infringement
- Copyright infringement
If a copyright, patent, or trademark has been infringed upon, contact us today to learn more about how we may be able to help protect your intellectual property.
When business owners hire a professional for their service, they pay them to do the job right. When lawyers, accountants, and other professionals commit malpractice that affects a company’s bottom line, it shouldn’t have to bear the costs. Professionals who provide service below the standards of their field have committed malpractice, and business owners can make a claim against them to recover losses.
The Business Trial Group has a history of helping clients recover losses in insurance, legal, engineering, accounting, and other malpractice lawsuits. Our contingency fee model means you won’t pay anything unless we win your case.
Securities and Stockbroker Fraud
Investors intrust their hard-earned money with a financial adviser or stockbroker with the expectation they’ll act in the investor's interests, not their own. Unfortunately, some advisers try to get rich at their clients’ expense. When your investment is on the line, don’t spend any more money trying to get it back. The Business Trial Group contingency fee model allows you to hire attorneys to recover your investment without any upfront costs.
Shareholder & Partnership Disputes
Shareholders, minority owners, and partners often have agreements that dictate how decisions are made and profits are divided. When these agreements are broken, a lawsuit is often the only way for a partner or minority owner to resolve the situation.
Most disputes arise when a majority owner withholds profits from a minority owner, but other issues, such as embezzlement and negligent management, are not uncommon. Regardless of the situation, the Business Trial Group wants to see partnership agreements upheld and may be able to help resolve the dispute.
