Three Common Business Disputes an Orange County Business Litigation Attorney Can Help With

Although an experienced attorney can provide assistance with a wide variety of different business issues that necessitate involvement with the legal system, some disputes are more common than others. Three types of business disputes that an Orange County business litigation attorney can help with include:

  • Contract disputes: Contracts create private law among the parties who sign the agreements. Many things can go wrong when a contract has been created. When a breach of contract is suspected, an experienced attorney can provide assistance with assessing contract validity; contract interpretation; and breach of contract claims. In some cases, it is also possible to take legal action for unlawful interference with a contract. This can be necessary to protect important business relationships when third parties make attempts to intentionally undermine contractual relationships.
  • Disputes among business partners or co-owners: Partners and co-owners should work seamlessly together for the good of the business organization. Partnership and shareholder agreements should define the relationship between co-owners and set forth the obligations of each owner. Unfortunately, disputes still arise frequently and can undermine success of a company. Resolving such disagreements in an efficient manner while preserving the relationship among co-owners is of paramount importance.
  • Claims arising from a breach of fiduciary duty: A fiduciary duty is the highest duty that one person can owe to another person or group under the law. Many people in business are considered to be fiduciaries, including directors and including company officers. If a fiduciary acts in his or her own best interests instead of making decisions and taking action based on what is good for the company, a claim for breach of fiduciary duty can arise. There are many ways a fiduciary could fail to fulfill his obligations. A breach of fiduciary duty can occur when the fiduciary fails to live up to the duty of loyalty imposed upon him or fails to fulfill the duty of care when executing his duties within the business organization.

Brown & Charbonneau, LLP can provide assistance with all of these common types of business disputes. Our legal team also offers representation to businesses involved in employer/employee cases; intellectual property claims; fraud actions; and more.

The Importance of Representation by an Experienced Orange County Business Litigation Attorney

You cannot afford to have just any lawyer representing your business when you become involved in a dispute that affects your organization. You need an attorney who has experience providing advocacy to clients who are  involved in similar types of disputes to the one your company is facing. You should also make sure your attorney can provide your company with assistance in settlement negotiations, arbitration, and litigation as many business disagreements end up being resolved outside of a courtroom.
