Business disputes of all kinds can arise in the life of any commercial enterprise. Such disputes can occur at any stage of a business and occur in a variety of ways. Factors that can be involved in any dispute can be based on the nature of the business itself, its previous dealings with other companies, customers, vendors, employees, or clients, the types of transactions in which it engages, and the state and federal laws to which is it is subject. Some business disputes however, such as contract disagreements whether between business partners or between a business and a specific contractor, supplier, or client, are more common than others.
Any business dispute can be disruptive, irritating, and financially threatening. At The Amlong Firm, we understand the frustrations and difficulties you face as a business owner or partner during any type of business dispute. Our primary goal is to resolve your dispute as quickly and inexpensively as possible in order to minimize your business losses. However, we believe you must always be prepared to go to court to preserve your business interests and assets.
Disputes Between Co-Owners & Partners
Are you ready to retire? Is a continuation of the business you created no longer an option? Did you run into a snag while winding down your business operations?
Dissolving or terminating a corporation, partnership, or any other type of business entity is much more complicated than locking the front door and walking off into the sunset. Before you can terminate your business or partnership, you must dissolve the legal entity, a process that is often fraught with disagreements and disputes between co-owners and partners.
Other Commonly Disputed Issues in Business
If you are a business that deals with suppliers, purchasers, contractors, or other entities, the most likely area of dispute concerns contract agreements. The parties to any contract can find themselves in a dispute over any of the terms or lack of terms involved in a contract. Disputes can arise over the receipt or nonreceipt of products or services, the length of contract arrangements, or over other specific situations which may or may not have been adequately addressed by the contract.
Other disputes can arise from customer relations where a client or customer expresses dissatisfaction with the quality or some other aspect of the product or service. These types of disputes can lead to legal claims filed against the business.
Disputes can also occur in the area of employment, such as those involving discrimination, hiring, firing, and other employment law issues. These issues can be complicated, subject to state and federal regulations, and require a legal professional conversant with applicable statutes, caselaw, and who is adept in both negotiation and litigation.
