Bradenton Business Litigation Lawyer
Even the most diligent business owners and well-prepared companies encounter obstacles that require outside legal assistance. Whether you are having difficulties with a vendor or are considering litigation against a party who has breached their fiduciary duties, an attorney can help guide you in the right direction and carry the action through to completion. Filing a lawsuit may be in your best interest, but on the other hand there may be a better option. A Bradenton business litigation lawyer will make your best interests a priority, and will exhaust all other avenues of conflict resolution before taking the matter to court.
Common Business Disputes That a Business Litigation Attorney Can Help Resolve
As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. We understand this, which is why we offer a comprehensive approach to litigation and conflict resolution. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to find out what the best end result is, and the most streamlined way to get there. We handle all of the following types of business disputes and more, and sometimes litigation is the best route to take:
- Breach of Contract—A contract is a legally binding document, and when one party violates that contract, the other party may be owed financial compensation for their losses.
- Breach of Fiduciary Duties—As a fiduciary, there is a strict duty to do what is in the best financial interest of the party in question. A violation is subject to legal intervention.
- Shareholder Lawsuits—Questionable management decisions occur in all sizes of businesses, and shareholders have the right to take legal action when they believe that one party has wronged them or the company.
- Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices—Parties who use unfair methods of doing business, such as false advertising, are subject to lawsuits under Florida law.
- Fraud and Misrepresentation—Fraudulent business transactions are not only punishable in criminal court, but in civil court as well, where the harmed party can seek financial compensation for their losses.
- Theft of Business Assets—Entire businesses can be taken down by various entities, such as a disgruntled employee who sells information to a competitor, which is a much more serious type of theft than theft from a cash register by an employee or manager
- Interference With Contractual Relationships—Intentional third-party interference with contractual relationships can be grounds for a lawsuit, and has gone way past typical competitiveness.

Acting too slowly is one of the top mistakes that businesses make according to Forbes, and this includes waiting too long to resolve a conflict or to file a lawsuit against a negligent party. Under Florida statute 95.11, the statute of limitations is five years for a breach of contract, four years for property construction flaws, and four years for fraud. This may seem like plenty of time, but it is not. Furthermore, disputes are likely to grow worse without action, and clients and customers are often inevitably driven away or forgotten about during times of conflict. We strongly encourage you to take action quickly by talking to an attorney about your options.
