Fraud, Fiduciary Duty and Complex Business Disputes

It doesn’t matter which side of the “v.” you are on — when it comes to business litigation, experience matters.

We have taken on and successfully resolved some of the most contentious, high profile, and complex business cases around involving partnership disputes, breach of fiduciary duty claims, fraud, conversion, and breach of contract. We have represented small business owners and small businesses that find themselves in a situation where their interests have been put at unnecessary risk. And, we have represented individual investors who have found themselves defrauded by their investment advisors.

We understand that the stakes of business disputes are high, and that the issues can be complex. We work with businesses and business owners facing litigation, or considering bringing suit, to analyze each case so that clients have a thorough understanding of the upside and the downside of litigation, the time involved, likely outcomes, and possible resolutions prior to or, in lieu of, filing suit.

We provide for alternative fee arrangements and approach billing differently. To us, billing by the hour makes no sense. There is no connection between the fees charged and the value of the work done. And while legal costs are a business risk like any other, we try to give our clients certainty as to their legal spending. Oftentimes, we will quote a fixed fee for litigation. We will also work under a fixed periodic fee retainer. This works as a monthly charge that will cover all time worked on a matter for a specific period of time (i.e., monthly).

And as a trial firm, we are willing to work on a contingency arrangement with the right case.

The types of cases where we can help you include:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • General business and commercial disputes
  • Tortious interference and other business tort claims
  • Breach-of-contract cases
  • Securities litigation
  • Partnership & shareholder disputes
