Business Litigation

When it comes to business litigation, the name speaks for itself: commercial and legal issues are two sides of the same coin. The lawyers of Evans & Dixon’s Business Litigation Practice understand our clients’ companies, industries, markets and regulatory pressures, and have an extensive record of success developing sophisticated trial and settlement-negotiation strategies that help clients achieve their business objectives. We are committed to providing high-quality, high-value and responsive service, no matter the scale or scope of the dispute.

Our litigators are recognized for our willingness to take client disputes to trial and for our experience in court and before administrative agencies. This often plays to our clients’ advantage, well before a matter appears before a judge or jury. We regularly help our clients minimize risks and avoid litigation through strong negotiation and the development of effective pre-trial settlement options. Our combination of the right people and the right resources enables us to resolve many complex disputes while avoiding the potential risks and negative publicity of a full-scale courtroom battle.

We represent clients in a broad range of matters, including the following:

  • Bankruptcy, collection and asset-recovery disputes, and lender’s priority rights
  • Class actions and shareholder and derivative actions
  • Construction litigation, including mechanics’ liens, workmanship issues and payment disputes
  • Employment agreements, including non-compete, non-solicitation and related agreements
  • Environmental law
  • Fraud, including securities and common law matters
  • Governmental liability
  • Management, supply, sales and other contracts and agreements
  • Probate issues, including will contests and contested claims
  • Real estate litigation, including management and leasing contracts and refinancings
  • Trademark infringement

Client Testimonials

They’re very empathetic when they need to be, but they are also results and business oriented when they need to be. I also trust them, not just with me and my staff, but also with the injured workers and people on the outside they have to deal with as well.
