Commercial and Business Litigation

Your Partner in Business Law

At DeWitt Law, we represent business clients of all sizes and types of entities such as corporations, partnerships, professionals, trustees, directors and officers with a wide variety of legal issues and concerns with an eye toward timely and cost-efficient resolution. This includes partnering with clients on alternative fee arrangements.

We have represented clients in numerous state and federal courts, before administrative agencies and in arbitration and mediation on matters like those listed below.

Contract Disputes

It is not unusual for businesses to get involved in contract disputes with vendors, suppliers, franchisees and even clients. When this happens, it is essential that you minimize risk while protecting your assets.

DeWitt Law has spent years successfully representing companies in business to business disputes. If you have suffered losses due to another party failing to honor its end of an agreement or are sued by a claimant who alleges that you breached your contract with them, we will advise you on your rights and options and represent you during any negotiation or litigation that results.

Business Dissolution

Companies dissolve for many reasons, one of which is the owners deciding that they no longer want to run a business together. These cases can be complicated in terms of business valuation issues. DeWitt Law has developed relationships with business attorneys, forensic accountants and similar professionals over the years to provide the expertise in navigating these types of cases, so if you and your partner(s) have decided to explore new options for your futures, we can help you realize a fair and accurate return on your investment.

Employment Matters

We represent businesses in many aspects of the employer and employee relationship, including the negotiation and drafting of fair and reasonable:

  • Employee handbooks
  • Employment agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Independent contractor agreements

We will also assist you in resolving workplace disputes through negotiation, mediation and if necessary, litigation. Our approach is marked by our commitment to helping business owners maintain a positive work environment where everyone’s rights are respected and protected, thereby minimizing litigation risk.

Franchising Litigation

Some companies that present themselves as franchisors take advantage of investors by misleading them about costs, fees, and profits, placing them in violation of certain franchise and contractual rights laws. If you have been the victim of fraudulent franchise and license sales, contact DeWitt Law to review your available remedies. We will take swift and aggressive action to enforce your rights.

Our business and commercial litigation clients rely on us for quality and trustworthy guidance on multiple aspects of the law and how it affects their business. To learn more about how we can support and protect your business goals, contact DeWitt Law today.
