Texas is a great place to have a business. Our laws make it a favorable climate in many ways and new businesses are being started every day. However, this means that our state is no stranger to a wide variety of business problems. A business dispute can bring great hardship to your business and stress to the parties involved. Unfortunately, legal disputes are commonplace in our society today and will impact most businesses. At Martin Cukjati & Tom, LLP we have extensive experience successfully handling business litigation cases, working with our clients to prevent a lengthy court process if possible and fighting for them in court if litigation is unavoidable and your best option. Risk management, negotiation, arbitration, and meditation are a few tools we can employ if we think that will lead to a better outcome for our clients; however, our team has extensive experience helping clients navigate state and federal courts from the trial level throughout the appeals process.
Our goal is always to minimize the cost of disputes for our clients and help them get a positive outcome for their business. We also know a long, drawn out legal process serves no one, so we aim to get business litigation issues resolved as quickly as possible so you can focus on the health and success of your organization. We often see clients try to resolve things themselves that they may see as minor issues only to have it spiral out of control into a costly court battle. Contacting us when a problem arises means we can help keep things under control and avoid a significant financial loss for the business and its owners.
We are ready and able to tackle all business disputes no matter where you are in the resolution process, including:
Breach of Contract
Contracts touch every area of a business and provide the foundation of your dealings with employees, clients, and vendors. Contract disputes occur when someone failed to meet the obligations defined in a contract. A well-structured agreement is the first step to preventing these issues, as it will outline the recourse if someone fails to do what they are contractually obligated to carry out. Litigation is sometimes necessary in this scenario, but often a breach of contract can be resolved outside of court.Read More
Business can become personal when a partnership dispute arises. Clearly defining each partner’s roles is critical for the success of a partnership and can help prevent problems when issues do come up. A partnership dispute cannot only cause strife for the partners, but can lead to reputational harm with employees and clients. Our team can both structure agreements and manage disagreements while helping preserve the business and its important relationships.Read More
A loss that warrants filing an insurance claim can be devastating to your bottom line. Unfortunately, insurers are usually looking for a way to pay you as little as possible or to deny your claim altogether. If carriers are not giving you a fair deal or are denying a valid claim, we can take over the negotiation process and have them reconsider their denial or lowball offer. Our team is experienced at working with insurance companies both in and out of court and we know how to fight for the maximum compensation due under your policy.Read More
Throughout an employee’s lifecycle at a company, there are many times an issue could arise that could lead to costly litigation. A company’s contracts, policies, and procedures can be strong preventative measures, but employment issues can still occur. Our team can help with everything from reviewing hiring contracts to dealing with a disgruntled terminated employee. Our goal is to help you keep your employees safe and happy and as a result help your business grow.Read More
