Business Law

Business law or litigation is an umbrella term for a variety of claims that can be brought or defended against in a court of law, mediation, and/or in arbitration. Business litigation generally includes people and companies disputing money, rights, contracts, and other property interests. In a dispute with your business partner? Believe an employee or independent contractor has harmed your business in any manner? Owed money for services rendered or dispute a debt owed? Have a judgment against someone but don’t know how to be paid for it? Being sued for allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or breach of contract?
