Types of Business Disputes

With experience representing clients throughout the Midwest, our firm understands the importance of aggressive legal representation. Our firm represents people in business litigation related to:

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Minority oppression disputes
  • Contract disputes
  • Employment disputes — discrimination, wrongful discharge, noncompete agreement disputes
  • Securities, antitrust and trade regulatory disputes
  • Construction disputes and liens
  • Real estate disputes
  • Intellectual property, trade secret and unfair competition disputes
  • Environmental matters

We will create a plan and budget that you can live with, and will meet your goals.

Litigation in today's business environment means more than just a courtroom. It involves creating plans that deal with problems proactively, and dealing with disputes through mediation and arbitration.

Commercial Construction Litigation and Construction Liens

Our attorneys understand the importance of resolving commercial construction disputes as quickly as possible — any delays in the project could have significant adverse affects on the business itself. Speak to our experienced team today for help resolving contract disputes, code violations, bond disputes, disputes involving lakefront property and more.

We also understand that many issues can arise before, during and after construction projects. This is why many contractors protect themselves by obtaining liens against commercial property to ensure all amounts due are received. Our lawyers are well-equipped to resolve even the most emotional and contentious disputes involving construction liens. We routinely resolve matters through alternative dispute resolution methods, which saves the time and money associated with prolonged litigation. That being said, we are always prepared to protect our clients' rights in court.
