Best & Flanagan represents a diverse array of corporations, businesses and individuals in connection with all types of commercial and business disputes. Our commercial litigation group handles a variety of commercial matters, including sales practice matters, licensing and registration issues, breach of non-compete and royalty agreements and replevins, among others. We draw upon decades of experience to meet our clients’ needs and objectives in the most timely and cost-effective manner.
We work closely with our business law practice group to be proactive in the avoidance of commercial disputes. However, when issues arise, our team’s collective experience allows us to analyze a commercial dispute from a variety of perspectives and to be both artful and nimble in its resolution. Our goal is not to scorch the earth; rather, our goal is to achieve the outcome that best serves our client’s needs and goals.
A limited liability company approached us after another company defaulted on its obligations under notes, mortgages and security agreements. In addition to non-payment, our client was concerned that the defaulting party would alight with the collateral. We swiftly moved to take possession of the collateral, as well as secure the defaulting party’s agreement to early mediation. Both steps by our litigators postured the case for successful resolution at the early mediation.
After procuring an advantageous settlement for our client in a hard-fought construction defect claim, our client entrusted us with the resolution of lease disputes with its commercial tenants. There was no time wasted on getting up to speed. We knew our client, its values and its goals in resolving the disputes with its tenants. Our team negotiated a fair compromise, allowing the client and its tenants to move forward and get back to business.
