Resolving Business Disputes The Right Way

When faced with a business dispute, your goal is not just to resolve the matter at hand, but to ensure the long-term success of your business. At Heekin Law, P.A. in Jacksonville, our attorneys build dispute resolution strategies with that goal in mind. Over the course of more than 70 combined years handling commercial litigation, we have earned a reputation for obtaining favorable, cost-effective results in even the most complex cases.

Settlement Versus Trial

When the future of your business is in jeopardy, it is tempting to rush in, file a lawsuit and go to battle. However, the potential benefits of this approach need to be weighed against the certain costs. The nature of the dispute must be taken into consideration.

In reality, not all disputes require a lawsuit. There are good reasons to consider pursuing a settlement through negotiation, particularly if that approach could salvage business relationships that could be valuable in the future. A skilled lawyer can often find means of reaching a mutually beneficial resolution without the need for courtroom intervention. We strive to do so whenever possible, often saving our clients time and money in the process.

However, we are trial-ready. While we frequently pursue resolutions without conflict, we always prepare for conflict. We build cases that are ready to be argued in court, and we have a proven record of positive verdicts in commercial law disputes of all kinds.

Examples of disputes we can resolve include:

  • Breach of contract and other contract disputes
  • Non-compete agreement disputes
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Intellectual property disputes, including trade secret actions
  • Unfair competition claims
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims

We can also represent businesses in employment law disputes with employees.
