The business law attorneys at Curd, Galindo & Smith, L.L.P. represent business owners and business entities in the litigation of disputes arising in the course of business, or regarding ownership and control of the business itself. From our offices in Long Beach, we represent clients in Los Angeles and Orange counties and throughout Southern California and statewide.
Even with the most careful planning and attention paid to every possible business transaction, contract and legal disputes are a fact of business life that can never be completely avoided. When disputes do arise, they must be addressed and handled expertly and efficiently. Not only can a contract dispute or other legal action seriously threaten a company's existence, but the process of resolving the dispute itself can be damaging, draining company financial resources and diverting the attention of supervisors, managers, and business owners away from the core operations of the company as they contend with the dispute.
When a problem does arise, our experienced trial lawyers are ready to step in to resolve the dispute through informal means such as negotiation, mediation or arbitration, or to proceed with litigation in court if necessary to protect our client's interests. Our attorneys are prepared to litigate a breach of contract or other matter across the spectrum of business interests, including:
- Buying or selling equipment
- Leasing commercial property
- Contracts with vendors, suppliers, or customers
- Employment agreements, including covenants not to compete, protection of trade secrets, and claims of wrongful termination
We also litigate disputes pertaining directly to the business entity itself, such as
- Shareholder disputes
- Partnership and joint venture disputes
- Business dissolutions
We also represent clients in matters involving business torts or wrongs, such as embezzlement, fraud, and deceptive and unfair business practices. Regardless of the basis of the dispute, our attorneys are ready and able to represent the interests of the business client capably and effectively.
