  • Disagreements regarding the interpretation of contracts
  • Disputes about the rights and responsibilities of the parties under commercial agreements
  • Business dissolution or reorganization
  • Infringement of trademarks, service marks, or intellectual property
  • Interference with existing contractual relationships
  • Violations of non-compete or non-disclosure agreements by former employees

Types of Business Litigation We Handle

At Gausnell, O’Keefe & Thomas, LLC, we focus our practice on many industries and sectors. We believe that it takes in-depth industry knowledge, extensive trial experience, and hard work to achieve the best outcomes in business litigation. Types of business litigation matters we handle include:

  • Partnership disputes: When partners cannot agree, it can result in a lawsuit.
  • Violation of non-compete and non-disclosure agreements: An employee or former employee may violate a non-disclosure or non-compete agreement, necessitating a lawsuit against the employee.
  • Breach of contract: Both parties must fulfill the terms of a legally binding agreement, once entered into. If a breach occurs, the damaged party may seek compensation.
  • Product liability: If you make a product that causes harm to someone, your company could be sued.
  • Premises liability: If an invitee is injured on your business premises because of a hazard that exists on the property, it could lead to a premises liability claim.
  • Breach of lease: If a landlord or tenant breaks one of the provisions set out in the lease document, they can be sued.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty: When someone has a responsibility to act in the interests of another person and fails to do so, a claim could be brought against them.
  • Construction disputes: If there is a disagreement between parties on a construction contract or project, it may result in a lawsuit that requires legal representation specifically experienced in construction matters.
  • Unfair competition claims: If your business is accused of deceptive or wrongful practices that economically harm consumers or other business entities, your company can be sued.
  • Copyright infringement claims: Getting served with a copyright infringement lawsuit requires quick action and aggressive defense.
  • Fraud: While some fraud offenses are prosecuted by state law enforcement, many types of fraud can result in federal criminal charges.
  • Transportation accidents: After a transportation, truck, or bus accident, lawsuits are practically inevitable, regardless of whether the commercial driver was at fault for the accident.
  • Catastrophic injury claims: If your company is being sued for damages related to catastrophic injury, you need the best legal defense possible.
