How We Can Help

Commercial litigation in business refers to the process where disputes arising from business and commercial relationships are resolved in a court of law. This can encompass a wide range of disagreements, from breaches of contract and partnership disputes to fraud and regulatory violations. It’s a specialized area of law that requires a deep understanding of both legal principles and the intricacies of the business world. Engaging in commercial litigation can be complex, often requiring expert legal counsel to navigate effectively.

Business litigation is often needed when a dispute arises in commercial activities that cannot be resolved through negotiation or pre-lawsuit mediation. Such situations can encompass issues like breach of contract, business torts, or shareholder disagreements. Before proceeding, it’s essential to consult an experienced business litigation attorney to ensure your company’s interests and assets are best protected.

In both Kansas and Missouri, like many other states, the most common business disputes often revolve around breach of contract, where one party fails to fulfill their obligations set in an agreement. Additionally, shareholder and partnership disputes can arise when disagreements about company direction, fiduciary duties, or profit distribution occur. Business torts, such as claims of fraud, misrepresentation, or unfair business practices, also frequently surface. Intellectual property disputes, particularly in sectors with significant innovation, and employment-related disputes, such as wrongful termination or discrimination claims, are also prevalent in the region.

If you suspect your business might soon face litigation:

  1. Consult with an Attorney: Reach out to an experienced business litigation attorney to understand your rights, potential risks, deadlines, and to strategize an action plan.
  2. Preserve Relevant Documents: Ensure that all potentially relevant documentation, emails, records, or files related to the dispute are safely stored and easily accessible. Avoid deleting any communications that could be pertinent to the case.
  3. Notify Your Insurer: Depending on your business insurance policy, it may cover certain legal defenses. Inform your insurer about the potential lawsuit as early as possible.
  4. Avoid Direct Communication with the Opposing Party: To ensure you don’t unintentionally harm your position, let your attorney handle all communication regarding the dispute.
  5. Stay Calm and Focused: While facing a lawsuit can be stressful, it’s essential to continue running your business efficiently and effectively and avoid making rash decisions based on emotions.

Remember, each situation is unique, so specific steps might vary based on the nature and context of the potential lawsuit. When in doubt, it is best to consult with an experienced business litigation lawyer who can help you through the process.
