Running a business always carries the threat of conflicts arising. When a legal matter threatens the well-being of your business, you need effective counsel who knows the legal terrain. At Hamilton Law, PLC in Kalamazoo, we are experienced litigators who are fully familiar with Michigan statutes and case law pertaining to contracts, trademarks, shareholder rights, labor and other business litigation matters. We are skilled in dispute resolution and litigation, with a record of favorable settlements and verdicts. Our lawyers can develop a tailored strategy to work toward the best possible outcome for any conflict you face.
Business owners throughout Southwest Michigan rely on us for solid legal advice, advocacy, and representation in regard to:
- Breach of contract — If a supplier, customer, partner or employee fails to fulfill their contractual duties or accuses your company of a breach of contract, we step in to assert or defend your rights.
- Employment disputes — A disagreement with an employee can affect productivity, morale, and your company's bottom line or reputation. Our firm guides businesses facing employees' claims of wrongful termination, harassment, and discrimination suits. We also handle disputes over other issues, such as breach of nondisclosure agreements.
- Owner disagreements — Conflicts between partners, board members, and shareholders can seriously disrupt a business. We help owners find common ground through negotiation and we carry on litigation where necessary.
- Intellectual property issues — Maintaining a strong brand identity is essential to growing a business. If someone infringes on your trademark, we will work to prevent further infringement and to seek any relevant damages.
Beyond tackling the issue at hand, we consider the long-term well-being of your business. Our business law services include advising on how future conflicts may be avoided.
Whenever potential harm to your business arises, we will take steps to prevent any future damage from occurring. This may involve seeking a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order against an adverse party, under threat of penalties for violations. We will then move forward with potential solutions to the dispute that minimize disruption of your operations. Most often, negotiation, mediation or arbitration may be used to achieve a positive outcome. If those methods fail, litigation may be required. You can rely on our knowledge and experience throughout the dispute resolution process.
