Every business, from small business owners to large corporations, experiences issues. Some can be quickly resolved, while some take many legal processes before they can get a resolution. A Philadelphia business owner facing these issues could get help from a Philadelphia business litigation Attorney. At Kaminsky Law we will have a business litigation attorney review, advise you, and help resolve any business disputes you are facing.
Business litigation may be business to business, consumer to business, or business to consumer. In each case, you have different issues that should be addressed and properly vetted by a trial lawyer or litigator.
At Kaminsky Law, our top business litigation lawyers have many years of proven experience. We have been able to represent our clients in both state and federal courts in Philadelphia.
Our business litigation law firm can help you handle the following business disputes:
Businesses function around contracts. When employees and business clients have a business dispute with the owner, they first consult the contract. They go over what are the agreements made. Contractual disputes can get complicated. See our contract dispute practice area page for more specific information.
This is where an experienced business litigation attorney steps in. They can provide astute legal advice to their client.
Below are some of the most common contracts and agreements used by a company:
A shareholder and partnership agreement is needed in a business partnership. This agreement outlines the business management. Most partnership contracts also require the owner to specify his responsibilities. They need to do this to prevent future disputes between the two parties.
However, sometimes the parties don’t enter into a shareholder or partnership agreement and a dispute arises. In that case, you need a lawyer to navigate Pennsylvania’s business corporation law, advise you on a strategy forward, and enforce your rights as a shareholder of a corporation or member of an LLC. For more specific information see our shareholder disputes practice area page.
A warranty and a guarantee are different legal documents used interchangeably. A warranty assures that the quality of the product meets the standard. On the other hand, a guarantee is a commitment to the consumer. It states that if the product’s quality is subpar, the company will replace or refund it.
A financing agreement outlines how a specific business will use its finances. This is usually an agreement between a lender and a borrower.
The Pennsylvania Plain Language Law protects consumers from unclear contracts. This law also covers borrowers and tenants. According to this law, agreements between two parties should be understandable. The law requires contracts to be written in plain language.
This is an agreement between the owner and the consumer. The contract should state that the seller will need to deliver and transfer the ownership of his product to the consumer to receive payment. Alternatively, a buyer must receive the right of product ownership before releasing payment to the seller.
An employment contract should specify the employee’s benefits and compensation. It should also provide the employee’s tenure with the company.
An independent contractor agreement is a document between the client and the contractor. The contract should specify the expected work hours and the contractor’s payment terms.
Both of these documents are important to protect the client and the worker. They can refer to the agreements in the contract when a problem persists.
An insurance contract is a form of a written agreement between the insurance company and the policyholder. This document specifies the policy of the holder. It should also outline how the company will use the insurance buyer’s money. Other than that, this document should also include the insurance limitations.
Many issues that arise for small businesses lawsuits are covered by insurance. However, the insurance companies often don’t want to provide coverage, or look for ways to get out of paying. In those cases you need a Philadelphia business litigation attorney that can protect your rights as a business owner or oversee the insurance company throughout the trial process.
Construction contracts are needed when a business owner is establishing a new site or office for his business. This document should outline the following:
Business torts are intended to harm another person’s business. These are actions done by a different business or company to hurt the reputation or process of another business. Example of a business tort includes:
A fiduciary duty is the responsibility of representatives to meet the interests of their clients. A breach happened when the representative failed to fulfill his duty. To prove a breach of duty, a victim must prove that they hired the individual to do his duty. The victim should also show proof of damages due to the representative’s neglect.
An employer may include a non-competition clause in an employee’s contract. If they decide to leave their position, they cannot seek employment with a competitor company. This is to protect the business secrets and strategies.
An attorney can investigate non-competition cases even if they are entirely legal. If the agreement seems unreasonable, then it can be voided.
An employee who violates this rule may face punishments.
Clients or customers who are not consistently paying their contractors may face legal consequences. A contractor or business owner would need to prove that they have the right to receive payment from their client or customer.
They would also need to prove that they could not receive payments for their service to the client.
If all facts align, you may push through with legal action against your client. A civil litigation lawyer can help you with filing a lawsuit.
