Settling Business Disputes
No matter how careful you are conducting your day-to-day business, most companies end up facing some type of legal dispute. These types of disputes are almost unavoidable, even with good contracts in place. While contract disputes are relatively common, so are other types of business disputes.
Take Action to Protect Your Bottom Line
At the Law Office of D. Hardison Wood, we know that any type of commercial or business dispute can be disruptive to your daily operations. We will work tirelessly to resolve your legal issues as quickly and efficiently as possible to help you protect your bottom line. We have decades of experience helping represent our clients in such disputes. We represent individuals, stakeholders, and businesses in all manner of business disputes including, but not limited to, the following:
- Partnership and Business Disputes: Even the most well thought out partnership can take a wrong turn that results in an internal or external dispute. These disputes may include disputes between partners about financial compensation or what is best for the business. With your livelihood and business on the line, you need experienced legal representation to assist you in reaching the best outcome possible.
- Breach of Contract: Breach of contract disputes typically happen when one party fails to honor its part of the contract. This may happen because the contract is unclear or incomplete. This results in the parties interpreting the contract’s language differently.
- Business to Business Disputes: These disputes occur when two businesses are attempting to work together and one of the parties’ actions are perceived as unfair or deceptive to the other business. This often results in litigation.
- Breach of Non-Compete Agreements: It is fairly common for a business to ask employees to sign a non-compete agreement. This keeps the employees from engaging in similar types of business in a specific geographic location for a specific period of time. North Carolina courts have found these agreements to be reasonable and have routinely enforced them. On occasion, however, a business may ask an employee to sign such an agreement that is too broad and is therefore unenforceable.
If you or your company is facing any of the above types of disputes, or any other types of business-related dispute, our experienced attorneys can help resolve your legal issues as quickly as possible. We know how important it is for you to protect your bottom line.
