Business Law and Litigation

If you are looking for successful and experienced business litigation attorneys in Los Angeles, our firm can assist you. Our attorneys are well-versed in business law and litigation. We have handled numerous lawsuits involving partnership disputes, corporate lawsuits, breach of contract actions, fraud and negligent misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duties, collection cases, interference with contract, commercial sales, fraudulent transfers, construction defects, contractor lawsuits, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, business accountings and other business lawsuits.

Breach of contract lawsuits and litigation are the most common business disputes for a business or property owner. Whether the lawsuit arises from a partnership agreement, a purchase and sale agreement, a lease or other business contract, a dispute will often revolve around a written or oral agreement and the breach of that agreement by one of the parties to the agreement. We have handled all types of breach of contract disputes throughout Los Angeles and Southern California.

Typically the remedy for a breach of contract action is money and that is what a court judgment will typically award. However, because real estate is considered to be unique, a real estate lawsuit relating to who owns (or should own) a piece of property should also include a claim for specific performance.

This claim, which goes hand in hand with a breach of contract claim, asks that the court force the other party to perform their end of the bargain. For example, if a party enters into a contract to sell a warehouse but then later fails to live up to that contract, the buyer can ask the court to compel the seller to actually sell the building to buyer (rather than just award money damages). Make sure that you deal with an attorney who has experience in real estate and breach of contract litigation when a real estate transaction is at issue.

We represents businesses large and small in a variety of industries, including manufacturers, importers, entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, retail businesses, internet companies, brokerages, investors, media companies, consultants, non-profits, and other businesses and business owners throughout Los Angeles and Southern California.
