Corporate & Small Business Litigation

Our firm has successfully represented clients in various business and commercial litigation matters, including breach of contract, construction disputes, contested probate matters (e.g., will contests, the disqualification and removal of executors), employment disputes, business torts, including fraud and breach of fiduciary duty, creditors’ rights (including adversary proceedings in federal bankruptcy courts), Uniform Commercial Code claims, business reorganizations, and shareholder disputes. The relationships with our clients extend well beyond the individual case. Our goal is to implement our clients’ objectives whether it is taking a case to trial or seeking a quick, successful resolution.

Our firm regularly represents shareholders and partners in complex litigation involving closely-held businesses frequently in the context of a business break-up and buy-out referred to as a “corporate divorce.” While negotiation is a preferred and usually amicable resolution, we are capable of pursuing the matter in court. We also handle disputes arising from stock and asset purchase agreements, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and other business arrangements, as well as shareholder rights and responsibilities. Our firm regularly serves as local counsel in many of the surrounding counties.

We are frequently called upon to represent our clients in the prosecution and defense of lawsuits to protect clients’ intellectual property and trade secrets, including the misappropriation of trade secrets, trademark and copyright prosecution and infringement.

Over the years our firm has handled a variety of commercial litigation matters, including real estate litigation, easements, variances and boundary disputes, real property title disputes, construction litigation, contractor disputes, collection actions, commercial real estate foreclosures, loan work-outs and a variety of UCC matters.

Our firm has represented the insurer, the insured, the policyholder, and broker and agent interests in insurance coverage litigation and coverage counseling. This includes the handling of matters concerning policy interpretation, evaluation of coverage, advice regarding contractual indemnity and insurance provisions, excess and reinsurance matters, broker’s and agent’s liability, and disputes regarding these matters.

Our location on the Texas Gulf Coast has provided the firm an opportunity to assist a number of clients with various issues in the maritime and admiralty industry, including maritime liens and libels and various contract disputes over vessel repair, charter parties and vessel management.
