How Can a Business Litigation Attorney Help Me?
Business law is a broad area that encompasses all laws pertaining to the formation, operation, management, and termination of businesses. Our team of skilled business litigation attorneys understands the intricacies of the law and how they apply to your situation.
In business, inevitably, conflicts arise. Business disputes can involve issues such as:
- Breach of fiduciary duties,
- Unauthorized disclosure of trade secrets,
- Shareholder oppression, and
- Breach of contract.
We know how quickly a simple disagreement can evolve into a complicated matter that requires litigation. When that happens, you need a team of lawyers to protect your business’s financial interests. Whether someone is suing your company or you are suing another party, our attorneys will devise a strategy to achieve a favorable result. Our business litigation lawyers will educate you and walk you through your options. We are prepared to negotiate outside of court or zealously represent you in court or arbitration. With a reliable team like The Hunnicutt Law Group, you can get back to focusing on your business’s success while we handle the legal matters.
What We Do
Our Dallas business litigation lawyers know how to manage conflicts in every aspect of your business and across a variety of industries. We have represented businesses in construction litigation, real estate litigation, oil and gas disputes, trademark and copyright infringement, and other commercial business litigation. The Dallas business litigation attorneys at The Hunnicutt Law Group have experience successfully handling a variety of business disputes. We have represented our clients in state and Federal courts, mediations, and arbitrations from San Diego to New York City.
Breach of Contract
Businesses are built and run on contracts. These legal documents should state the parties’ obligations, rights, and remedies. When one party fails to uphold the contract’s terms, this is a breach of contract. Whether it be an employment agreement or a product or services contract, the impacts of a breach can be detrimental. In a breach of contract action, the law intends to put you back in the same economic position as if the contract had been performed. Therefore, you may be awarded damages in the form of liquidated damages, specific performance, compensatory damages, or consequential and incidental damages.
At The Hunnicutt Law Group, we will help you enforce your rights under the contract, whether someone is alleging you have breached the contract or you believe another party is in breach.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
A fiduciary duty is a legal and ethical obligation to act in the best interest of another party. For example, corporate directors owe a fiduciary duty to shareholders, and partners owe a fiduciary duty to each other. A breach of fiduciary duty occurs when the fiduciary fails to uphold its obligation and causes damages. Businesses can suffer significant financial loss from the misconduct of a fiduciary. At The Hunnicutt Law Group, our Dallas business litigation attorneys represent both plaintiffs and defendants in breach of fiduciary duty claims.
Shareholders are an integral part of a company. As investors in the business, shareholders have significant rights, such as voting and receiving dividends. Shareholder disputes arise when those rights are violated. While you may solve some conflicts with shareholders internally through negotiations or mediation, some disputes require court intervention. Whether someone oppresses your rights as a shareholder or shareholders harass you as an owner, our business litigation lawyers can step in and help you work toward a resolution.
By exposing fraud or misconduct, whistleblowers assume a significant amount of risk. At The Hunnicutt Law Group, we believe in protecting the rights of whistleblowers. We can assist you in strategically handling the disclosure of information to protect yourself and your potential reward. Our team understands the complexities of whistleblower laws and can provide aggressive representation.
Exposure of trade secrets can seriously threaten the success of your company. The Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act provides strong protections against misappropriation of trade secrets. Often businesses also use non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements to protect trade secrets from being shared. Our business litigation lawyers in Dallas can help you enforce these safeguards through litigation.
With litigation comes risk, and we know that your business’s vitality may hinge on the success of your case. That’s why we work with you to develop a strong case with solid legal arguments and supporting evidence. We provide aggressive and efficient representation for individuals and businesses whose rights and financial interests are at stake. With our expertise, knowledge, and skills, we will make the litigation process as smooth as possible.
