Litigation between businesses is a daily undertaking for many Oregon business law attorneys. Disputes involving shareholders, former officers and directors of a company are also common. They sometimes turn into business litigation when the disputes cannot be resolved by negotiations.

5 tips for selling your business

Much like starting a business, selling one can be stressful and time consuming. Many characteristics about your company must go into consideration when putting it on the market, and timing is equally as important.

Construction contract disputes are common in business litigation

Claims of breach of contract between parties to construction agreements are a common source of litigation in the Oregon state and federal courts. One of the most basic business litigation claims is that a company hired to do construction work did not perform acceptably under the terms of the agreement, thereby committing a breach of the contract. For example, in another state an individual in the body shop and collision repair business contracted with a local contractor to construct an auto body shop.

Business litigation filed by condo association against contractor

Oregon, like all other states, resolves a large volume of breach of contract actions in its court system each year. These disputes cover many different circumstances that arise between business entities or agencies, or between individuals and such entities. One common type of business litigation dispute concerns the alleged breach of contract between parties to a construction contract.

Business litigation dispute is settled during arbitration

Disputes between partners or owners of a small business arise often in Oregon and elsewhere. Business litigation of this nature involves attempting to resolve the various claims that the longtime associates have against each other at a time when the relationship is winding down or already defunct.

Business litigation over alleged defective software occurs often

Litigation over software and digital programs is voluminous in Oregon and nationwide. There is nothing more frustrating than to get a new program for a business network and find that it just doesn't work like it was supposed to work. If this is the main system that runs the whole dispatch for emergency fire department calls, the damage can be catastrophic, and time will be of the essence in resolving the conflict. The primary legal theory in business litigation of this kind is usually breach of contract.
