No matter how carefully you plan, business and commercial disputes are inevitable. However, prudent and skilled management of legal conflicts can protect your company from crushing losses and preserve the value of your business transactions, relationships, and assets. At O’Hara Watkins, our business litigation attorneys have a reputation for professionalism and ethical representation. We draw on more than 45 years of combined experience to analyze issues, identify goals, recommend strategies, and pursue optimal results. We are usually able to resolve business disputes through negotiations, mediation or arbitration. But if justice requires us to go to state or federal court, we have proven ourselves able to present a compelling case at trial and on appeal.
O’Hara Watkins provides trustworthy litigation services for businesses and consumers in a wide variety of areas, including:
When clients come to us with a business law dispute, we are highly responsive to their concerns. We work closely with them to craft an appropriate strategy and aggressively pursue their goals for resolution.
Not every contractual dispute has to end up in court. At O’Hara Watkins, we understand it’s often more important to preserve the value of the deal than to enforce a disputed term. We take proactive steps to “heal the deal” before escalating the issue in an adversarial proceeding. We often discover the heart of the problem is a misunderstanding of expectations under the contract, often due to imprecise contractual language. In such situations, it’s generally appropriate to reform a contract to preserve the deal and the business relationship.
When a breach clearly has occurred, we take decisive steps to minimize the damage to our client and recover losses whenever possible. Such remedies can include:
The choice of a remedy and the calculation of damages depend on many factors. To recover your losses, or receive the greatest protection from liability for losses, you must only trust your case to an experienced and accomplished business litigator.
