Commercial Law & Litigation
Generally, commercial litigation involves actions which are, in some way, related to matters which fall under the Uniform Commercial Code, adopted (with minor variations) throughout the United States. Most of these matters relate to article 2, trade issues.
What divorce is to family law, business litigation is to business law. Sometimes vicious, vindictive and almost aggravated, but rarely pleasant. Shareholder derivative actions, breach of shareholder agreements, partnership disputes, employee theft of assets, violation of non-competition agreements are only a few of the problems that beset a growing company.
Whether you are a homeowner, a builder, developer, or contractor, all of Florida is governed by Florida Statute 713 et seq; Mechanics Liens. These statutes are very strictly construed, with no room for error. A lien which is 1 day too late is no lien at all.
