The Law Office of Lawrence B. Lambert represents businesses and individuals in commercial litigation disputes in state and federal courts and arbitration proceedings and assists small businesses with their contractual and transactional needs.
Few small business owners are looking to start a litigation fight, but sometimes you have to stand your ground and protect yourself. Perhaps a former employee or business partner is trying to take your company’s trade secrets and start a competing business by soliciting your customers. The owners of the business may have a dispute over the future of the company that has put the entire operation at risk. Maybe a vendor shipped you the wrong product and now refuses to refund your money or resend the correct product. Or, perhaps a customer or competitor has sued you for some real or imagined violation.
Sticking your head in the sand and pretending the dispute doesn’t exist is simply not an option. When these intractable disputes occur, you need someone in your corner who understands your business and is willing to put in the time and attention to protect your interests. The Law Office of Lawrence B. Lambert will be there to represent you zealously, honestly and diligently until the dispute is resolved, whether by settlement, through trial or on appeal.
While some disputes can’t be avoided, businesses can take precautionary legal measures to protect themselves. Choosing the right type of business entity, preparing a shareholder agreement, operating agreement or partnership agreement, and having certain employees sign employment contracts or noncompetition agreements are just a few of the legal considerations every business should address. Many disputes arise because business owners fail to take the time to prepare adequate foundational documents and agreements. The Law Office of Lawrence B. Lambert can help with these corporate transactional and contractual agreements.
