When an agreement, contract, or arrangement is violated, the results can cause financial disaster for  others. In the event that financial harm is caused to another through a business transaction, the victim may have grounds to seek compensation.

Commercial disputes often include large amounts of funds, property, or benefits, but even a  comparatively small dispute can lead to a life-changing outcome for the involved parties. John R. Gilbert has decades of experience in navigating the complex laws surrounding commercial disputes, and is proud to assist our clients with a wide range of business law matters.

Areas of commercial litigation claims include:

  • Commercial fraud – A wide range of activities in the work place can deprive an employer,  business partners, or other entities of their investments and other funds. From abusing company assets to misrepresenting income, any instance of deliberate dishonesty in a commercial environment could be grounds for a claim of fraud.
  • Breach of contract – When two parties enter into a contract, they are legally bound to honor the terms of the agreement. Even if the contract is not written, verbal agreements can sometimes be considered a contract, and the intervention of a court may be necessary if a contract is breached.
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty – Certain arrangements require that a person be placed in a position of trust, such as the manager of an estate or a shareholder in a company. If a person in this role acts in an inappropriate way for personal gain, they may be liable for the resulting damages.
  • Real Estate Fraud – A wide number of schemes and ploys take advantage of unaware Americans every year through real estate fraud, which can include falsifying information to obtain a loan, shouldering a buyer with exorbitant payments, or presenting false information about a property.
  • Partnership Disputes – When a business operates under a partnership, the assets can be complicated to share or divide. Even an amicable separation of partners may require legal  guidance to fairly split the benefits, profits, and debts of a company.

 

Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap – let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.
– Abraham Lincoln
