Experienced Representation for Clients in Business Injury Matters
Businesses of every size and shape are what make this country an amazing place to live and work. They are vital to our economy and help foster diversity. But anyone who owns a business knows that there are plenty of challenges, some of them legal. One misstep or encounter with a party that has less than pure intentions could be disastrous for you and your employees.
Our Georgia business injury attorneys understand the issues that our clients face. If you are involved in a dispute, you need a sophisticated and smart legal advocate who will aggressively defend your interests and protect your rights. Our lawyers have the experience and legal knowledge you need to resolve legal disputes so that you can move forward with your business.
Contract Negotiations and Disputes
When companies, business partners, or other parties wind up embroiled in a dispute over an alleged breach of contract, the battle can be costly and distracting. As experienced business lawyers, we help clients avoid business disputes through the proactive negotiation of strong contracts. As experienced litigators, we help clients effectively resolve business disputes in the most cost-effective and timely manner possible. We handle business contract cases involving:
- Partnership agreements
- Real estate contracts
- Commercial lease agreements
- Non-compete agreements
- Breach of contract
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
If you are a professional that gives special guidance or expertise to your clients, you may be obligated by law to act in your client’s best interests. If a client alleges that you’ve breached that fiduciary duty and they’ve suffered financial harm, you could be sued for compensation. Our knowledgeable and skilled business injury lawyers defend corporations, business entities, and professionals that are sued for this type of alleged wrongdoing.
Innovation occurs at a rapid pace in today’s competitive business environment. Protecting intellectual property has never been more important. We represent individuals, startups, and established companies across a wide range of industries to protect intangible assets like copyright and trademark protection through litigation and other means of dispute resolution.
Unfair Trade Practices
The consumer protection laws in Georgia and the Federal Trade Commission Act provide legal recourse for the victims of deceptive or unfair business practices. These laws are in place to protect the interests of both consumers and businesses when goods and services are purchased, sold, or leased.
But a business that has been wrongfully accused of wrongdoing often faces an uphill battle in terms of reputation and legal consequences. If a claim arises against your business, a knowledgeable and experienced attorney can guide you through your options and help develop the best legal strategy to protect your rights, livelihood, and reputation.
Federal and state labor and employment laws are designed to protect employers and employees. But they are complex. At DuBose Miller, our Atlanta employment law attorneys handle several types of negotiation and litigation related to employee-employer disputes:
- Employment Contracts
- EEOC Charges
- Non-Compete Agreements
- Family Medical Leave Act
- Confidentiality Agreements
- Unpaid Wages
- Wrongful Termination
- HIPAA Compliance
Our goal in handling employment disputes is to reach a fair agreement without resorting to litigation. But we are always willing to take matters before a judge and jury when the situation warrants.
Business and consumer fraud are on the rise. But it’s a misconception that consumers are the only ones harmed by deceitful practices. Examples of fraud include credit card fraud, mortgage fraud, and identity theft.
When businesses experience damages due to the fraudulent practices of a consumer or another business, they have the right to pursue compensation. As attorneys who practice both personal injury and criminal law, we are particularly adept at recovering compensation for our business clients who have suffered damages due to fraud.
DuBose Miller trial lawyers represent clients in individual and class private treble damage actions, including multi-district class actions, matters between business entities, and direct and indirect actions following government investigations. Our firm has litigated matters in claims of alleged monopolization, exclusive dealing, price restraints and discrimination, restrictive covenants, and other related antitrust matters. We understand that the stakes are high in antitrust litigation and offer our clients comprehensive solutions to complex legal problems.
Our law firm represents business clients involved in civil disputes brought under the federal RICO statute or Georgia’s own version of the racketeering law. If you are the party to such an action, the stakes are incredibly high, where defendants can be held liable for up to three times the amount of damages plus attorney’s fees.
Commercial bribery cases in the private sector involve the attempt to influence the affairs of a company through embezzlement, extortion, mail and wire fraud, or securities fraud. RICO cases are complex and must be litigated meticulously. If you are a plaintiff or defendant in one of these cases, we will put our considerable experience to work on your behalf.
As a collective group, unions have a lot of power to seek better working conditions, higher wages, and improved benefits for their members. But just because an employee files a complaint with the union alleging a violation of their rights under an agreement, that doesn’t necessarily make it a fact. Businesses must still be able to operate, make a profit, and manage their employees.
We represent unionized companies in traditional labor law matters under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Our firm handles collective bargaining, provides advice on contracts, and advocates for management in arbitration and court proceedings.
