Emergency-Business-LitigationEmergency litigation can arise frequently and at any time between business owners, members of a limited liability company, shareholders of a corporation, partners of a partnership, or employers and employees. These business relationships can regularly create opportunities for one party to infringe on the rights of the other, cause a breach of contract, or to also breach of fiduciary duty, thus damaging the business entity and its financial condition or the individual and their financial condition.

When a party breaches its legal obligations, the other party should have every right to protect themselves or take the dispute to mediation, arbitration or to court. However, traditional methods of litigation and dispute resolution may not be quick enough.  The normal lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years. Emergency litigation matters require immediate resolution because more often than not, a party cannot afford to wait months, or longer, for the resolution of a lawsuit while continuing to be harmed by the other party’s violations.

Emergency litigation can arise at any moment for any type of business entity. All emergency litigation matters require a swift and rapid response in order to protect the business from irreparable harm.

  • Partnership Disputes;
  • Shareholder Disputes;
