    Businesses live and die by generating profit. That is to say, getting paid. When parties that owe you money do not pay you what they are supposed to, it can be incredibly frustrating and even distressing. Contracts and other obligations need to be honored to keep things going, and you may want to resort to legal action if parties are not upholding their duties to you and your business.

    What Matters Can Our Atlanta Commercial Litigation Attorneys Help You With?

    Our attorneys can help you with a wide variety of commercial litigation matters. Additionally, we know that each business has different needs, priorities, and capabilities. Accordingly, we will tailor our approach to fit your situation best and fight towards getting you the best outcome possible. Some of the things our office can help you with include:

    Contract Disputes

    One of the most common reasons parties enter into commercial litigation is because of disputes that arise out of contractual obligations. Generally, parties do not enter into legally binding agreements intending not to uphold their obligations – although that does sometimes happen. Contract disputes often happen when parties disagree on the meaning of a particular portion of the contract. One party may read a section as requiring the other to do something, while the other may see no such obligation present in the contract. This can lead to friction if, say, you ask a distributor to make a delivery, and they refuse because they claim they are under no obligation to do so.

    Our commercial litigation attorneys can examine the contract in question to figure out what exactly is going on, and we can take parties that have not held up to their end of the bargain to court to get you what you need to continue running your business.

    Debt Collection

    Another thing that our lawyers can help you with is collecting outstanding debts from other parties. You can file lawsuits to compel parties to pay debts you are owed, and our lawyers can assist you in this endeavor. We will also ensure that we work towards getting you what you are owed without running afoul of debt collection laws or otherwise harassing the debtor. We understand that a continued relationship with other parties can sometimes be important to your business.

    Intellectual Property Infringement

    The term “intellectual property” can refer to a lot of different things. It generally refers to inventions, creations, and “things” that a business owns or comes up with that are unique to the business. For example, a company’s logo is often a very strongly protected piece of intellectual property. Another entity using your company’s logo has the potential to do serious harm to your brand or business reputation. If your business holds intellectual property rights and someone else has infringed on them, we can hold them accountable in court. Intellectual property law can be particularly tricky and may require attorneys with specialized skill sets, but we are up to the task.

    Non-Compete Litigation

    New employees for many companies are often given “non-compete” clauses in their employment contracts. These causes prevent employees from working for a competitor to your business for a set period. They exist to guard against an employee potentially getting trained by you only to take their skills to a competitor, where the competition will benefit from your hard work training that former employee.

    Of course, employees do not like non-compete clauses because they can seriously limit their ability to market themselves and advance their careers. Accordingly, these clauses are often fought over in legal battles.

    Some non-compete clauses also provide that employees cannot give “trade secrets” or other special information to competitors. If that happens, our lawyers can handle the situation and hold those employees in question accountable.


    A business’s reputation can mean everything. Especially in the age of social media, bad reviews, unjustified or not, can tank a company’s reputation. When individuals take it upon themselves to spread negative falsehoods that impact your bottom line, you will want to hold them accountable. Defamation laws allow you to do just that.

    There are two main ways that a business can be defamed: libel and slander. Libel refers to written negative falsehoods about a business. For example, if someone writes a false news article, blog, or angry Twitter/X post that impacts your bottom line, you can sue them for libel. Slander, on the other hand, refers to oral defamation. If someone says falsehoods about your business, perhaps even in video form, you can sue them for defamation with the help of our attorneys.

    Sale or Dissolution

    For whatever reason, you may want to sell or dissolve your business. All things come to an end. Perhaps you have received an excellent offer, or you may simply want to move on to another project. Dissolving or selling a business can be extremely complicated and depends on many factors, such as the desires of any business partners, the size of the business, inventory, and other considerations. Discuss your situation with our attorneys to figure out the best course of action in your situation.
