Business Litigation

Houston Business Litigation

There are many paths to resolving legal disputes. The path you take will be determined by your circumstances and goals. Litigation is one tool that can help resolve legal disputes, and it has both advantages and disadvantages. The Houston business litigation attorneys at Adair Myers Graves Stevenson can help you understand the potential risks and benefits associated with taking a case to trial so you can feel confident about choosing litigation.

Breach of Contract

Contracts form the backbone of a business. In order to be successful, you must rely on other individuals and companies to adhere to their agreements. When they fail to do so, suppliers, customers, employees, and executives may all suffer from an interruption to the smooth flow of business. A breach of contract can be devastating for any type of business.

Fraud and Misrepresentation

While most parties entering into a contract do so with good intentions, sometimes individuals or companies commit fraud or misrepresentation to encourage the transaction. The laws regarding fraud and misrepresentation are often complex, and require certain criteria to be met in order for the injured party to obtain compensation.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

People like trustees, business partners, and officers and directors of companies are charged with acting in the best interests of the companies they represent. When these individuals, called fiduciaries, fail to act in a company’s best interest, they can be help responsible for the damage their actions cause through a breach of fiduciary duty claim.

Collections

At the law office of Adair Myers Graves Stevenson, we provide a full range of representation for creditors in bankruptcy court. Our lawyers use their extensive bankruptcy and collections experience to find the best solution to help you recover some of your investment from a failing business, whether it is a simple motion for a release from stay or a more complex solution.

Arbitration

Not every case is decided on the floor of a Texas state or federal courtroom. In many instances, individuals and businesses commit to arbitration to settle contractual and legal disputes without involving the courts. Arbitration can allow a quicker, more cost-effective, confidential, and specialized alternative to litigation.
