What Kinds Of Cases Do Business Litigation Lawyers Handle?

In the business world, it is not uncommon for disputes to arise that lead to litigation. When this happens, it is important to have a skilled business litigator on your side.

Business litigation attorneys are skilled at diffusing sensitive situations and working calmly through what can be challenging and emotional moments. They can also resolve legal matters before they even get to the courtroom.

Nondisclosure Agreements

A nondisclosure agreement is a legal contract between two parties, usually a business that has confidential information and someone else who will have access to it. These agreements protect these business secrets by preventing the party from disclosing the information to others or using it for their own benefit.

NDAs should identify who the parties to the agreement are, and include a definition of the types of information that will be covered by the confidentiality agreement. They also set out the obligations of the parties regarding their handling of the confidential information. An NDA should also incorporate a time period during which the confidentiality obligation expires.

A NDA should specify the consequences of a breach, such as injunctive relief and damages. It should also provide a method of marking the confidential information as such so that it can be easily identified by all involved. NDAs that fail to comply with these criteria are prone to be rejected by courts.

Breach of Contracts

Contracts are a huge part of business, and if someone breaks one it can be extremely costly. Business Litigation lawyers deal with contract disputes on a regular basis.

A breach of contract happens when an obligation is not fulfilled. This might be as simple as failing to send a payment on time, or it could be something more serious such as a failure to deliver the goods and services as specified in a contract.

If there’s a contract in place that specifies specific damages in the event of a breach, such as lost revenue, a lawyer can help the business owner file a lawsuit for recovery. Damages might be a flat amount like nominal damages or they might be tied to specific financial losses, such as the cost of hiring extra staff to cover a missed deadline.

Not every dispute needs to go all the way to court, and many are settled through mediation or arbitration. A New York business litigation attorney can be very helpful in finding a resolution that suits everyone’s needs.

Partnership Disputes

Even the most well-intentioned business partners do not always get along and disputes can arise over a variety of issues. These disputes can affect daily operations and if not resolved quickly can lead to litigation that could be very costly for all involved.

The best way to deal with these disputes is through direct negotiation or mediation before resorting to litigation. Alternative dispute resolution is typically far more cost-effective and less acrimonious than traditional litigation.

Regardless of how they are solved, it is important that these disputes are handled by attorneys who understand the importance of maintaining a good business relationship and know how to keep both parties focused on their common goal: getting their case settled as quickly and effectively as possible. This can be a difficult balance because it is not unusual for business partners to be extremely passionate about their positions on a given issue and this can often harden positions. Eventually, a solution must be found that is fair to both parties.

Intellectual Property Disputes

A company’s intellectual property may be protected by a number of laws, including copyrights, trademarks, and design rights. In the event that a business believes that another entity has infringed on their intellectual property, they can file a lawsuit against the other party.

In some cases, the parties will be able to resolve their disputes without having to enter the courtroom. This is often the case with business litigation matters that involve a breach of contract. In other cases, the litigation can be resolved with alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation or arbitration.
