What Are Some Common Issues That a Business Attorney Handles?
Some common issues that business litigators handle include:
- Breach of contract. This occurs when one party does not hold up their end of a contract. For example, if a company hires a contractor to build a new office, but the contractor does not do the work as agreed upon, the company can sue for breach of contract.
- Fraud. This occurs when one party commits fraud against another. For example, if a company sells a product that they know is defective, it can be sued for fraud.
- Wrongful termination. This occurs when an employee is fired for an illegal reason. For example, if an employee is fired because of their race or religion, they can sue for wrongful termination.
- Intellectual property disputes. This occurs when one party uses another party’s intellectual property without permission. For example, if a company uses another company’s trademark without permission, it can be sued for trademark infringement.
These are a few of the most common general business matters that your business law attorney is equipped to handle when you need representation most.
What Are Some Common Defenses That Business Litigators Use?
Some common defenses that business litigators use include:
- Assumption of risk. This defense can be used when one party knew of the risks involved in a situation and still chose to participate. For example, if a company knows that a product is defective but still sells it, it can be sued for negligence.
- Contributory negligence. This defense can be used when one party is found to be partially at fault for their own injuries. For example, if an employee is injured on the job but is found to have been using defective equipment, they can be sued for contributory negligence.
- Comparative negligence. This defense can be used when one party is found to be more at fault for their own injuries than the other party. For example, if an employee is injured on the job but is found to have been working in an unsafe area, they can be sued for comparative negligence.
What Are Some Common Settlement Options for Business Litigation?
Some common settlement options for business litigation include:
- Payment of damages. This is when one party pays the other party for their financial losses.
- Return of property. This is when one party returns the property that was taken from the other party.
- Injunctive relief. This is when one party is ordered by the court to stop doing something that is harming the other party.
- Specific performance. This is when one party is ordered by the court to do something that they have agreed to do but have not yet done.
