Contracts are the backbone of the business world. Nevertheless, even with a signed contract, disputes may arise with your clients, contractors, employees or business partners. Attorney Don Thompson is painfully aware of the toll a contract dispute can take on a small business. He spent years defending his company in a brutal shareholders dispute, and he knows that fighting for your rights can drain you emotionally and financially.When this happens, you want to make sure the interests of your business are protected and the integrity of your agreement is preserved. Our Florida law firm has experience tested in fire, and we are eager to assist you with the resolution of any disputes that arise concerning a contract between your business and another party.
We handle all types of business litigation, including:
- Breach of contract
- Partnership and shareholder disputes
- Employment contract disputes
- Separation agreement disputes
Helping You Resolve Noncompete Agreements
One contract dispute that can affect both business owners and their employees is a noncompete agreement. We advocate for both employers and employees disputing the terms of these contracts. Typically, noncompete contracts prohibit former employees from seeking work from competing businesses for a period of time in order to protect the interests of the business owner.
There is a fine line between a noncompete covenant that is too vague to be of value to a business owner and one that is so restrictive that it is unfair to the employee. If you are uncertain of your rights with respect to a noncompete agreement, our law firm will help you sort it out and guide you in taking the appropriate action to resolve the dispute.
How To Handle Partnerships Disputes
Disputes between partners can be the result of a basic misunderstanding, blatant malfeasance or anything in between. No matter the cause of your dispute with your partner, unless you reach a resolution, it could mean costly litigation or even the demise of your business.
We will help you work to resolve your dispute with your partner in the most expeditious and cost-effective manner so you can get back to the work of running your business. We can also assist you in creating a solid partnership agreement to address common issues that threaten the harmony of your working relationship.
