Business Disputes, Negotiation & Litigation
Litigation can have a significant impact on a company’s ability to achieve its business objectives.
We help companies doing business in the region that are involved in commercial litigation assess their options and make decisions consistent with their goals. We have represented companies in complex litigation matters and alternative dispute resolution proceedings across a broad range of industries.
We are effective in virtually every type of general business litigation, including disputes regarding:
- Minority Shareholders
- Partnership Disputes
- Unfair Competition
- Consumer Fraud
- Insurance Coverage & Liability
- Real Estate
- Wrongful Termination – Employer and Employee Representation
- Product Liability Defense
- Personal Injury Defense
Our knowledge, experience and training in business and commercial law are supported by our proactive style. When handling a business dispute for a client, we do not promote unnecessary business litigation, but are mindful there are times to engage in a legal battle and will do so if it is in the best interest of our client.
We have represented clients in a wide range of contract law disputes, including those involving contracts for:
- Limited Liability Company contract
- Breach of Real Estate contract
- Land contract
- Movie distribution litigation
We never encourage a client to accept an unsatisfactory compromise, and if it becomes necessary, we will vigorously pursue a claim to the fullest extent possible.
Litigation: Corporate and Commercial
Increasingly, the primary avenue of recourse for many business disputes is in the courts or before arbitration panels. Our paramount concern is the end result of our client and we candidly assess the benefits and risks of Corporate and Commercial Litigation at the outset of every case.
When appropriate, we bring adversarial parties together, before litigation, to explore options available as alternatives to trial. If negotiation, mediation or settlement is appropriate, we explore all opportunities without compromising our client’s ultimate objective.
The temptation to litigate, while compelling, should not be undertaken lightly as it can prove to be both expensive and emotionally charged. There are times, however, when after careful deliberation, we advise the client that it is the preferred form of resolving disputes.
When the decision is then made to litigate, our attorneys apply themselves with vigor to achieve the best outcome possible. Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, P.C. attorneys engage in an integrated and comprehensive approach to each issue and each cause of action we initiate or defend.
Our litigators appear in both state and federal courts regularly. As trial lawyers, we hone our skills by attending seminars in all practice areas to keep abreast of recent developments in case law and trial techniques.
Our experience includes complex and routinely litigated multi-million dollar corporate and commercial cases.
The depth of experience in other departments of the firm is an invaluable resource when distinct areas of the law are encompassed within a litigation matter. Our clients also find it convenient to have lawyers in related areas of practice address their full range of legal requirements.
A Win-Win Attitude
Our commercial litigators include experienced trial attorneys, prepared to litigate a case from inception through trial and appeals. Our commercial litigators also have significant experience with such alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation, arbitration and mini-trials. Regardless of the forum, our commercial litigators have the experience necessary to represent our clients zealously and effectively.
Creating a Partnership with our Clients
Business is dynamic, and as a result, goals may change during the litigation process. Our attorneys promote a climate of open communication and shared information with our clients. We believe that a well-informed team can better assess available options, consider how these options fit with business goals, and choose the strategy best suited to each client’s objectives.
Effective Solutions to Unique Problems
As problem solvers, our attorneys strive to gain an understanding of the client’s business and the peculiar issues facing it. At times, we may partner with in-house counsel and business decision makers to produce a well-informed team with a common goal. Together, this team defines both the goal and the most effective and efficient strategy for reaching that goal.
Cost is Always a Consideration
Finding a solution can be meaningless without considering the cost of the solution. We take pride in developing the most efficient and cost-effective solutions for our clients. Never a firm to follow a “one size fits all” philosophy, we employ a litigation model that carefully matches the right lawyers and other staff member to each case. The result: a case staffed to meet both the demands of the litigation and the business consideration of each client.
