What Is Business Litigation?
The complex field of business law has several major components, including formation, establishment of policies and procedures, transactions and litigation.
These areas are interrelated in important ways. For example, choosing the right entity and establishing sound business practices often prove important to avoiding business litigation later on. This is a vital goal for most business owners, who need to focus on operations, innovation, profitability and sustainability rather than lawsuits.
What Types of Commercial and Work Disputes Call for Legal Counsel?
Business litigation comes into play when disputes arise. Conflicts may involve partners, employees, the parties involved in any transaction or contract, suppliers or customers. When they do, the stakes are often very high, and it is critical to work with an attorney equipped to analyze the situation, apply relevant laws and help you make the best possible decisions. Such decisions must account for risk vs. reward, likely costs of litigation and other factors.
Attorney Andrew W. Stavros advises and represents small and medium-sized businesses, executives and professionals, and others throughout the Salt Lake City area who must consider taking legal action or defend their interests when a lawsuit is filed against them. His knowledge and capabilities extend across numerous areas of business litigation, including:
- Many types of contract claims and disputes
- Matters of employment law, ranging from discrimination and harassment claims to wrongful termination and potential breaches of employment agreements
- Real estate litigation and construction litigation
- Partnership, shareholder and ownership disputes — including allegations of fraud or a breach of fiduciary duty
