Common Types of Business Litigation in Long Island

Even if you run a tight ship and keep everything well above board regarding your business, there are times when business litigation is simply impossible to avoid. That’s when a business litigation lawyer can be especially helpful. The right business litigation attorney in Long Island can make sure the system works for you, not against you.

Some of the most common types of business litigation include:

  • Breach of contract: No matter what kind of contractor or business you’re working with, you likely signed a legally binding contract with them. If either side breaks that contract, the offending party can be sued for compensation to recover losses caused by the breach of contract.
  • Employment disputes: Employment disputes cover a variety of topics. For instance, if a former employee violates a non-disclosure agreement, you can take legal action. Or, if there is harassment in the workplace, you can be sued for that. You could also be sued for improper pre-employment tests and qualifications, or for wrongful termination.
  • Intellectual property disputes: Whether you created a proprietary piece of software, a copyrighted tagline, or some other kind of intellectual property, if it’s being used without your permission, you can take legal action. You can also take action if someone has disclosed your company’s trade secrets.
  • Shareholder disputes: If your business has sold stocks, whether publicly or privately, a disagreement may arise if shareholders are unhappy with the way the company is being run. They may be unhappy with how finances are being handled, the direction of the company, and other issues that can lead to a lawsuit.
  • Commercial real estate and lease disputes: Most businesses lease space, though some own their real estate. If you are looking at expanding, or you are having a legal dispute with the government or your landlord, an experienced commercial litigation attorney can help you through the legal process.

Your business may also be sued for product liability or other issues pertaining to your products or services. No matter the legal issues you’re facing, the Long Island business litigation lawyers at TonaLaw can take on the burden of litigation so you can focus on your company.

Business Litigation Frequently Asked Questions

Not necessarily. In many cases, the process of mediation or arbitration is enough to settle the matter. Mediation involves both parties working with a neutral third party to find a resolution that works for everyone. Arbitration works much in the same way, but the third party comes to the final decision. If neither solution is viable, however, litigation may be required.

Corporations, LLCs and other businesses have to operate by certain rules dictated by federal, state and local governments. These regulations may change on a yearly basis — or even more regularly. What’s more, companies must operate by formation documents and bylaws they create and file. As such, you need an experienced business litigation attorney who is intimately familiar with all laws and regulations associated with running a business in Long Island.

Generally, yes. Just because you are facing legal issues generally doesn’t mean you are unable to operate your business. There are a few instances during which your business may be shut down and limited temporarily, such as if you are under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission. But for the most part, you can continue running your business as you always have.
