Atlanta Business Litigation Attorneys
Helping businesses in Georgia resolve their disputes
Atlanta is home to many established companies that have been here for generations. Some of the top Fortune 500 companies like the Coca-Cola Company, Delta Airlines, Home Depot, Chik-fil-A, Southern Company, UPS, and Georgia-Pacific are headquartered in the Atlanta metropolitan region. Atlanta is also home to some of the leading healthcare companies and universities in the United States. These older companies are regularly joined by new startup restaurants, tech companies, construction companies, and other newer businesses.
Buckley Bala Wilson Mew LLP is a seasoned business litigation law firm. We handle all a broad range of disputes, including employee rights, relationships with clients and customers, and legal compliance issues. We represent business entities, shareholders, employees, management, and other clients with an interest in a business or who have a dispute with a business.
This was my first time having to seek legal counsel on an employment issue so I was a bit nervous about the process. I was referred to Ed Buckley by a friend I respect and trust, and one that has over 20 years of experience in law. Mr. Buckley made the process much less intimidating for me. Many thanks to Mr. Buckley and team for helping me. I'd definitely hire them again. – Google review
How can you help with ownership disputes?
There are many different ways to form a business and many different ownership interests in a business. While business partners should be able to trust one another, sometimes business partners breach that trust. This can be considered violating the terms of the business agreement. The same can be true of the duties shareholders owe to each other.
As the owner of a small business, here are the type of problems you could get into:
Dispute over ownership
Disputes with vendors, suppliers, and other companies
Each type of business has different methods for determining who has an ownership interest in a business, the liabilities of the owners of the business, the rights to manage the business, how the business can be sold, how the value of the business is determined, and many other issues. These methods include partnership agreements, corporate by-laws, and other methods.
Our Atlanta business litigation lawyers help our clients identify the disputes, assess the options for resolving the disputes, negotiate agreements to resolve the disputes, and, if necessary, litigate the disputes in court.
What types of contract disputes do your Atlanta business attorneys handle?
Most business litigation matters originate from a breach of some type of contract. A breach of contract means the other party in your contract fails to do what is required of them according to the terms or promises you agreed upon.
Some ways a party may commit a breach of contract include:
Not being paid after you performed your end of the bargain
Not receiving a product or service that you paid for under the contract
Having a former employee work for a competing company or start their own business
Business contracts may involve the members of the company, vendors, clients, employees, and other related parties. One common way a breach of contract happens is if someone breaks a company operating agreement or contract with a vendor.
Some of the contract matters we handle include:
