Business Disputes in Florida

Business litigation proceedings encompass a wide range of civil disputes within the context of business. These claims occur when one or both parties to an agreement are in conflict about the terms and conditions of a contract and they choose to challenge their differences in court. Damages in business litigation lawsuits include current compensatory or punitive damages and future damages for the detrimental effects on the reputation of a business and the loss of business opportunities.

Some of the most common business litigation cases are:

  • partnership disputes
  • employment issues
  • non-compete agreements
  • shareholder disputes
  • intellectual-property issues
  • malpractice claims
  • breach of fiduciary duties
  • breach of warranty

At Mateer & Harbert, our focus is conflict resolution for business transactions through alternate dispute resolution or courtroom litigation. We are seasoned litigators that strive for the best possible outcome for our clients. We have successfully prosecuted and defended claims in various venues in Florida, including State, Federal, and Appellate courts, private arbitration, and administrative hearings. Our team works closely with our clients to formulate a creative legal approach for every case. The process begins with the initial interview with a client and the factual investigation of evidence. In the pre-trial discovery phase, there is a formal exchange of relevant information between both parties regarding the witnesses and evidence that will be presented at the trial. We include reliable witnesses and expert testimony to the facts of your case. If there has been an error in the interpretation of the law leading to an unfavorable court decision, our firm’s appellate attorneys can begin an appeals process to attempt to reverse the decision. Our Attorneys can prepare a strongly written and effective appellate brief and present a convincing oral argument in your defense.
