Business litigation refers to a dispute that arises in a business context but is being resolved through some formal process like mediation, arbitration, or in state or federal court. Examples of the types of business litigation our lawyers handle include:
- Breach of Contract – Breach of business contracts is perhaps the most common type of dispute we see in business litigation. It refers to one of the parties to a business contract not upholding their end of the deal.
- Interference with Business Contracts – This is also known as tortious interference and refers to damages or lost profits that result when a third party interferes with a contract between two other businesses.
- Bad Faith – A Bad Faith claim arises when a business partner or client enters into a contract with another business under false or misleading statements or circumstances.
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty – Individuals in a “special relationship,” such as partners in a business, have certain duties to each other and to the business. For example, a business partner should always act in the best interest of the company to the best of his or her ability. When a partner fails to act in the best interest of the company and acts, instead, in his own best interest, a breach of fiduciary duty claim may arise.
- Fraud or Misrepresentation – Fraud or misrepresentation refers to intentional deception by one party toward another who then reasonably relies on that deception and is damaged as a result.
- Unfair and deceptive trade practices – Many businesses may be confronted with an unfair and deceptive trade practice claim. This North Carolina law is designed to prevent businesses from engaging in deceptive conduct towards people with whom they do business.
We have offices in both Raleigh and Winston-Salem, and we appear on behalf of our clients all over North Carolina – from New Bern to Asheville. In addition, many of our lawyers are licensed in multiple states. Therefore, we can provide representation not only in any county in North Carolina, but also in many other states across the country.
