What is Business Litigation?
Of course, the term “business litigation” is a broad term that is used to describe a rather general area of civil litigation. Business litigation can affect almost any aspect of business or your involvement with your business. It is important to choose a law firm that specializes in this broad area of practice in all of its types. Here are some of the different kinds of litigation that we provide for to our clients:
Breach of contract
A breach of contract occurs when a contract between yourself and another individual or an entity is violated, and the result of the breach causes you to suffer damages. This is probably the most common type of business litigation we see.
Shareholder and partnership disputes
In these types of scenarios, Schneiders & Associates will usually represent a minority owner in a business against a majority owner in a business as a result of some kind of tort. This is usually a breach of fiduciary duty committed by the primary owner of the business against you.
Various business torts
“Business torts” refer too the many different kinds of actions we may bring in a lawsuit on your behalf. Some typical business torts include breach of fiduciary duty, fraudulent misrepresentations, and negligent misrepresentations. A breach of fiduciary occurs when an individual who has power over you or has taken up responsibility concerning yourself in a business capacity has breached their duty. As a result of that breach, you have suffered damages.
In the case of negligent misrepresentation or fraudulent misrepresentation, someone has made a representation to you that would end up being incorrect. You relied upon that representation, and as a result of your reliance on that representation, you suffered damages.
Every case is different, so your case will not be like any other. Contact Schneiders & Associates if you think you need business litigation in Westlake.
