Dedicated, Focused Service

As a business owner, you probably don’t have time to worry about legal minutiae. Many entrepreneurs hardly focus on the legal side of things at all until a problem arises. Disagreements between partners, collections, complex transactions, and similar episodes that can change the shape of a company require the help of a legal team that is very familiar with all aspects of business law. Disputes may arise outside the business as well: Contract violations and the release of proprietary information may threaten your revenue streams.

  • Breach of Contract: Breach of contract usually happens when one person or entity fails to provide products or services as agreed upon in a signed document. If the party who broke the contract does not have a legitimate legal justification, you may be able to recover your losses.
  • Broker Misconduct: Brokers are held to high standards and hold the trust of companies and individuals. Unfortunately, there are numerous ways a broker can violate legal parameters and harm your interests in doing so.
  • Stockbroker misconduct may be intentional or accidental, but if it costs your business, you might have a case. Illegal conduct includes negligence, churning, misrepresentation, over-concentration, unauthorized trading, and unsuitability.
