General Business Issues and Disputes

A business dispute and disagreement can present a serious challenge to a corporation or business enterprise. While the cost of pursuing or defending against litigation must be considered, sometimes the business has no choice but to take assertive action to protect its rights and interests.  The attorneys at Sherrill and Emehel are here to assist you, pursue and defend those rights in a wide variety of business litigation issues.

Contract Disputes

If you find yourself in a contract dispute, it is important to seek competent legal counsel early in the process.  An effective attorney can often help you avoid lengthy and costly litigation.  In cases where litigation is unavoidable, your attorney can help you negotiate a favorable resolution, minimize exposure and when necessary present your case to the arbitrator, judge or jury in the most beneficial and compelling light.

Fraud/Unfair & Deceptive Trade Practices

Under state and federal law, companies that intentionally mislead consumers about the character of their business or services may be subject to fines and penalties.  Additionally, they may be liable for any harm suffered by their consumers.  At Sherrill and Emehel, we work alongside consumers, regulators, and state officials to bring suit against companies who are engaging in unfair and deceptive trade practices.

Business Ownership Issues or Disputes

In the operation of a business, disagreements between owners, partners, or shareholders will inevitably arise. Many potential disputes can be avoided by selecting the right business organization and governance when the enterprise is formed. Other disputes cannot be foreseen and will often arise over time as the growth and development of the business proceeds.
