How can Becerra & Colgin help with commercial law and litigation cases?


Every business, even small startups, have many moving parts that are difficult to realize in advance. Potentially costly suits are common, even among companies that strive to do everything the right way. Some of the most frequent business legal issues include:

Breach of contract

Nearly every business relationship starts with a contract. Partnership agreements, supplier and purchase agreements and licensing agreements are all examples of their importance. When a breach occurs, it can cause tremendous problems within the company. Determining when a violation has occurred is difficult, as contracts are often subject to interpretation. Becerra & Colgin can help a company owner with this, filing suit, and representing them if a violation transpires.

Intellectual property disputes

One of the most important decisions a new business will have to make for their company is how to present the business to the consumer. For this reason, companies must protect their trademarks and other intellectual properties from infringement. Becerra & Colgin can help a company determine if another business is infringing on their IP, and if it is being done in bad faith.

Fraud

If a business speculates another company of concealing information or deception during business dealings, an attorney can help file a suit for fraud. In most cases, fraud is committed when two companies decide to merge or share resources in some way. If one party hides assets or other financial information when formalizing an agreement, they may be committing fraud.

Contract interference

Adhering to a single contract is usually a simple affair. Establishing business relationships with other parties, though, can complicate things, possibly resulting in a contract violation. Upon signing the contract, it is protected from third parties attempting to force a breach on either side. If a third party knowingly forces a contract breach that causes damage to a company, they can be sued for contract interference.

Breach of fiduciary duty

When two parties establish a business relationship, they may name a fiduciary to manage the details of the relationship. A fiduciary is responsible to the principal, the party that may incur harm if the fiduciary does not perform their duties. It is common for business partners to agree that one partner will operate as a fiduciary and manage certain aspects of the company.

This is just a small sample of what Becerra & Colgin can do with commercial law and litigation cases. With our experience and knowledge, we can provide legal support for businesses in any position.
