Blumberg & Bagley handles various forms of litigation involving contract matters, transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code, fraud, securities, fiduciary duties, business disparagement, trade secrets, unfair competition, as well as disputes about the management and control of business organizations (limited liability companies, corporations, partnerships, etc.).
Some of the situations that might come up in commercial litigation are:
- Contract disputes
There are many different types of contracts in business and commerce and thus, different issues may stem from the creation and performance of these contracts. Blumberg & Bagley is knowledgeable with these kinds of issues and how to handle them properly.
- Breach of fiduciary duty
An individual with a fiduciary duty has an obligation to act in the best interest of another party (a person, members of a corporation, etc.). For instance, a lawyer has a fiduciary duty to a client. This relationship involves a high standard of honesty and trust wherein the fiduciary is required to act in the best interest of the party for whom the fiduciary acts, and the fiduciary must exercise due care and diligence in making decisions for the party.
- Shareholder and partnership disputes
In any business, trust between the owners (shareholders, members, or partners) and managers (officers, directors, or others) is crucial to maintaining the business. However, when business trust breaks down for some reason, shareholder or partnership disputes may arise, for example. This is when experienced lawyers like Blumberg & Bagley can help to preserve the business.
- Misappropriation of trade secrets
Civil litigation may arise when individuals steal trade secrets and give the information to another company or a competitor. There are other ways that important business information may be misappropriated. However, the help of a knowledgeable law firm is a must-have for a speedier resolution of these matters.
- Securities fraud
In this situation, a person may try to raise capital for a business by making false representations about the business to potential shareholders and other investors. In this regard, shareholders and investors may need to litigate to ensure their rights are protected.
- Other business issues
There are a lot more issues that may come up after creating a business organization, such as hiring employees, making contracts, purchasing equipment for the business, or leasing commercial space. In all of these activities, reliable lawyers such as Blumberg & Bagley can help ensure that your business documents are prepared and your processes are properly and smoothly facilitated.
