Business law or litigation is an umbrella term for a variety of claims that can be brought or defended against in a court of law, mediation, and/or in an arbitration. Business litigation generally includes people and companies disputing money, rights, contracts, and other property interests. In a dispute with your business partner? Believe an employee or independent contractor has harmed your business in any manner? Owed money for services rendered or dispute a debt owed? Have a judgment against someone but don’t know how to be paid on it? Being sued for allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or breach of contract? These are just some of the business and contractual legal disputes that fall under the scope of business, commercial and contract litigation.
The backbone of law is the contract. An agreement between two or more people or entities is the foundation of all business and real estate dealings. When entering into agreements, having an attorney advise you and draft the agreement for you (typically for a flat fee) can save time, money, and likely prevent future disputes. After entering into agreements, modification or performance of the terms can lead to disputes. In such situations having an attorney to review, draft and advise you can be invaluable. Renie Leakakos has years of experience negotiating, drafting, editing, and modifying a variety of real estate and business agreements to prevent future disputes as much as possible and allow you to move forward with your business or real estate transaction with confidence.
When all other avenues fail, Renie Leakakos can bring her skills as a trial attorney to bear in your case to either prosecute your claims or defend you against claims in the areas of business and real estate. With Renie Leakakos working on your lawsuit you will have an advocate who knows the court system and will walk you through the process from complaint to trial. If there are obstacles and downsides to a choice or a situation in a lawsuit, they will be discussed openly and frankly so you are prepared for both your “best day” as well as your “worst outcome,” prior to making litigation decisions. Renie Leakakos practices preventative law, but when prevention isn’t possible, she will work with you to seek a speedy resolution.
