Why You Should Hire an Attorney to Help Resolve Your Business Dispute

Keeps Legal Costs Down

Business disputes can be expensive. Commercial litigation attorney Charlie Hoge can run an analysis of potential outcomes and costs to determine your best course of legal action. Typically, a quick resolution is ideal. But, if our San Diego firm is unable to resolve the matter quickly and out of court, our attorney will proceed with litigation as efficiently as possible.

Avoids Negativity

Business litigation can have a negative effect on company morale. An attorney can provide guidance on how to keep the dispute as private and confidential as possible. For example, an attorney can resolve issues in mediation or arbitration, which can prevent employees, the public, and the San Diego media from having intimate knowledge of the details of the lawsuit.

You Can Focus On Your Business

Unfortunately, business litigation is common, and most business owners need the assistance of a business law attorney at some point. By working with an experienced lawyer, business owners can maintain focus on the day-to-day operations of their business while the team at Hoge Law Firm in San Diego handles the details of the case.

A More Strategic Legal Approach

Whether you have a commercial litigation attorney on retainer or need help with a legal issue that has recently come up, it is beneficial to get legal advice from the start. In some cases, the mere threat of legal action can resolve the dispute. If more aggressive action is needed, attorney Charlie Hoge is prepared to file suit, initiate motions, and proceed with the discovery phase of litigation.

Business Litigation
Practice Areas

Partnership Litigation

Disputes may be governed by the terms of a partnership or LLC operating agreement. At our firm in San Diego, attorney Charlie Hoge will review the terms of your agreement to determine if you can renegotiate your agreement, dissolve the partnership, or pursue any other legal options.

Covenant of Good Faith

The business relationship may allow for the assertion of a breach of the covenant of good faith. If the parties do not deal with each other honestly and fairly, it could be considered a breach of good faith. These cases can be difficult and complex; consult an attorney to find out if you have a valid case.

Unfair Competition Practices

If a company misrepresents itself, its products, or those of a competitor, it may be liable for unfair competition and deceptive business practices. This can involve intellectual property and business law, making it critical to work with an attorney who can guide you through the legal process.

Breach of Contract

A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill responsibilities to the other party under the agreement. Many litigation disputes arise over non-compete agreements, confidentiality, and trade secret agreements where the law is complicated and developing. These actions can have a significant impact on the future of your business. San Diego attorney Charlie Hoge can handle breach of contract disputes involving:

  • Operating agreement disputes
  • Vendor contract disputes
  • Construction contracts
  • Licensing contracts
  • Violation of confidentiality agreements
  • Asset-purchase agreements, which may include real estate provisions
  • Business debts and repayment agreements
  • Commercial real estate leases

Charlie Hoge knows how to take fiscally conservative, yet legally aggressive action to bring your business litigation case to a quick resolution.

Damages
in Business Litigation Cases

In many business law cases, there is potential to receive monetary damages or equitable relief from companies that have harmed your business.

  • Monetary damages may compensate you for your actual losses and any damages that you incurred.
  • Equitable relief may either require the other party to fulfill their end of the contract or may absolve all parties of their responsibilities.
