Commercial Litigation Attorneys Serving Ohio & Kentucky
Businesses face a variety of issues in their everyday operations. From problems with employees to partner disputes and contract disagreements, business owners need to be on the defense by preparing for any possible situation that could arise.
They can do this by ensuring they are compliant with local, state and federal laws, drafting legally binding documents, procuring business insurance, securing loans and paying for them on time and doing their best to protect employees, clients and customers.
Even when a business has been proactive in following the laws and guidelines, problems can still occur, especially in today’s litigious environment. When problems happen, business owners will want to avoid a lengthy process to find a resolution so they can focus on getting back to business as soon as possible.
That’s why they should consider working with a commercial litigation attorney at Adams Law who can serve their business needs and solve all kinds of issues.
Why Hire a Commercial Litigation Attorney?
Commercial litigation attorneys – like the ones at Adams Laws – stand up for business owners and help them solve issues as swiftly as possible. They will avoid going to court and dragging out a case whenever they can because they know how stressful it is to be involved in a lawsuit.
Having a commercial litigation lawyer represent you could also save you time, money and energy. If you’re defending yourself, you may not be aware of all the legalities that apply to your situation and you could end up wasting money and your precious and limited time. Plus, on top of all that, there is the possibility that you could lose your case and be forced to stall or shut down your business.
A commercial litigation attorney will do everything in their power to ensure it doesn’t get to that point. They’ll guide you through the process for your case by explaining what’s going on in easy to understand terms and answering any questions you may have. Plus, they’ll let you know the different options you have and which one will save you the most money and time as well as protect your business and reputation. For example, if an employee sues you, a commercial litigation attorney may advise to settle outside of court rather than spending several months or years in court and possibly having to pay a higher settlement.
Adams Law Commercial Litigation Practice Areas
If you need help with commercial litigation, then the attorneys at Adams Law are here for you. We provide a number of different commercial litigation services including the following:
We have assisted various insurance companies in insurance defense litigation involving complex claims for insurance coverage, liability issues and bad faith claims. We work hand in hand with claims adjusting firms and their in-house counsel along with professional risk managers since insurance defense is such a complicated issue. This is an ever-changing practice area because there are always new case laws and statutory laws coming out; we stay informed on these topics so that we can represent your insurance company with the latest issues.
Our commercial litigation attorneys are experienced when it comes to the litigation of insurance disputes as well as mediation, arbitration and negotiation so that we can avoid going to court. While we offer advice to our insurance clients, we ultimately let them decide their course of action.
Our commercial litigation attorneys have a wide range of experience involving business competition, trade secrets, employment law, corporate formation and dissolution, complex construction, and real estate transactions. We provide business litigation services relating to contractual and tort claims. These claims include but are not limited to breach of contract, fraud, interference with contract, breach of fiduciary duty, infringement of intellectual property rights, and unfair competition. Since these are complicated issues, the parties involved usually cannot resolve them through arbitration proceedings or negotiations, which is why they turn to commercial litigation lawyers for help.
While business litigation usually involves businesses suing each other, in certain cases, like copyright and trademark violations, individuals may bring about claims against businesses and vice versa. We also handle corporation litigation and deal with corporate disputes, which often come up as a result of a breach of fiduciary duty. For instance, shareholders in a closely held corporation may recover against a corporate director if he breaches his fiduciary obligations. Our lawyers work on commercial insurance litigation cases as well; often, we come across cases where insurance companies rely on particular wording in a contract to avoid fully paying an otherwise legitimate claim.
Public Sector Litigation
Adams Law doesn’t just represent private businesses – it also represents public sector entities. We work closely with our government practice group to help clients in civil rights litigation, public and private school issues, and zoning and land use disputes.
Our commercial litigation attorneys work with our commercial development and real estate practice area attorneys on issues like contractor/subcontractor disputes, negligence claims, environmental claims, contract issues, and claims, bidding disputes, and insurance and indemnification issues. We are well versed in construction issues, which can be complex, which is why we collaborate with our other teams to help you achieve results for your issue.
Working with Adams Law on Commercial Litigation Issues
When you approach Adams Law with your commercial litigation issue, our attorneys will sit down with you to learn what has happened with your case so far, what evidence there may be to support your side, and what outcome you would ideally like to see. While no lawyer can guarantee that your case will turn out exactly the way you want, we will work hard for you to get you as close as possible to attaining your goals.
For over 125 years, we have served clients in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati areas, and we are deeply committed to helping them get back to business. We know how difficult it is to run a business without having to deal with lawsuits and claims on top of everything else. We’ll make your job as simple as we can and figure out which route is going to save you the most time and money. We will never prolong a case and we’ll only go to court if necessary. Usually, we attempt to resolve issues with mediation, negotiation, or other legal actions before we go to court. We’ll only go if it’s absolutely necessary and there is no other way for the parties involved to solve their issues.
At every stage, we are honest and transparent about what’s going on. We don’t expect business owners to be legal experts, too, which is why we are always open to hearing your questions and addressing your concerns. We handle issues that are big and small and are here for you no matter what your needs may be.
Our commercial litigation attorneys are personable and accommodating. You won’t be passed on to a junior associate like you would at other firms. Instead, you’ll gain access to experienced lawyers who have dealt with many cases like yours in the past.
Whether you are in a lawsuit with a client, employee, or customer, we are here to represent you and make sure that above all else, you and your business are protected and will continue to succeed for years to come.
