Breach of Contract
When one party in a contractual agreement does not follow through with the terms of the contract, it can damage your bottom line if orders and jobs can’t be completed. Depending on the specific case, our attorneys can help you recover compensatory, liquidated and/or punitive damages in a breach of contract case.
You and your business partners may not always agree. Disputes can happen over salaries, division of responsibilities, and how the business is run. Buckman and Buckman, P.A., can help you resolve these disagreements to protect your personal interests and the interests of your company. Resolving these matters through mediation, litigation or arbitration can prevent the business from dissolving
Intellectual Property Misuse
Protecting your brand is crucial to the long-term success of your business. Trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets are all considered intellectual property (IP). Our Intellectual Property litigation attorneys can help you create a plan to keep your work safe, and can take action if your IP is infringed upon, stolen or misappropriated.
Unfair Business Practices
Even if you don’t own a business, you will benefit from getting legal representation if you fall victim to fraudulent, deceptive or dishonest business practices. Small business owners could become targeted by another company trying to eliminate competition. You might face a situation where someone slanders your company or product. Or even be up against a competitor who uses deceptive marketing to hurt your business. There are 3 elements to an unfair business practice lawsuit and you must have all three to seek compensation.
Debt can have a major impact on the viability of your business. An experienced business law attorney can help you collect debts you are owed or help you get out from under your own debts. Protecting your business is our priority.
