BUSINESS LITIGATION

More often than not, business disputes can be managed without litigation if dealt with promptly. However, when litigation becomes necessary, you want the best and most experienced lawyers on your side. The Law Offices of Edwards & Johnson, LLC offer experience, perseverance and the right business perspective.

Advising our clients on the alternatives

Owning and operating your own business puts you in a position of authority — and with authority comes responsibility. When decisions need to be made, you inevitably will be on the frontlines.  Knowing what to expect and how to proceed in these situations can be invaluable to you as you operate and grow your business.  There are three key areas where an attorney from The Law Offices of Edwards & Johnson, LLC can prove their worth:

  • General business reporting obligations — IRS auditors are looking for you to account for the use of your money, time and resources during each fiscal year at the end of each year.  Retaining the services of an attorney and an accountant can save you the headache and hassle of end-of-the-year reporting while proactively managing tax-break opportunities.
  • Contract negotiations (vendor-supplier, manufacturer-distributor, broker-dealer, etc.) — No business is run on a handshake and a smile.  Every business relies on the good-faith performance of the terms under a contract.  The terms of a well-crafted agreement should explain when payments are to be made, to whom, for how much and what results in the event of a breach.
  • Hiring or firing a new employee — Half of what a business trades on is good will.  So, it is important to secure the loyalty of your employees and your sales force through noncompete and nondisclosure agreements.  An employment contract can further specify terms for compensation and performance review, tailored to each employee on a case-by-case basis.

Serving as our client’s litigation resource

Your businesses viability and profitability hinges on others performing their parts of the bargain.  When a business transaction is not completed as planned, it is important to assert and enforce your legal right to sue.  The scope of our business litigation practice encompasses:

  • Loan default and collections litigation
  • Breach of contract litigation
  • Mergers and acquisitions
