Commercial Law

"commercial law", "southwest florida attorney", attorney, law, "legal representative", courtCommercial law disputes can arise anytime there is a breach of a written contract or a written agreement. A breach is when one party has promised to do something and fails to perform its required obligations. This is essentially a broken promise. Breaches include non-payment issues, lack of performance, professional malpractice, negligence, unreasonable delays in performance, and poor or unacceptable work. Civil litigation can also arise when a party fraudulently induces another to enter in a contract by misrepresenting material facts about the agreement, such a representing a car as new or never having been in an accident when it really is used with a bent frame from being in a major crash. If you purchased something and did not get what you paid for, or worked and did not get paid, let us help you recover what you are due.

Problems can often be avoided by having an attorney review a contract before you sign it. Let the commercial law attorneys at Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz help advise you when entering into contractual agreements, whichever side of the deal you happen to be on.

We also provide specialized commercial litigation to small businesses or large corporations which require representation for the many different types of commercial disputes that can arise. We handle preparation of company and corporate governance documents, such as operating, membership, and purchase agreements, along with litigation over business disputes, often due to the lack of governance documents. Our attorneys are familiar with non-compete/non-solicitation agreements and their creation, enforcement, and defense too.
