Businesses of all kinds inevitably form some sort of contract with another party within the scope of their field: with clients, other businesses, suppliers, landlords, tenants, employees, etc. Even though the purpose of these contracts is for parties to agree to abide by certain terms and behaviors, breach of contract is almost as common as the contracts themselves. SLG’s team of Los Angeles business litigation attorneys have years of experience with contract law. We will not only help you and your business craft the best contracts in order to avoid the risk of breach, but also represent you are accused of breaching a contract.Partnership or Shareholder Disputes
Sometimes the conflict is coming from inside the business. Whenever disputes between owners happen it takes a toll on the business’s resources. California law clearly defines specific claims and defenses for cases related to partner or shareholder disputes, such as:
- Breaches of fiduciary duty;
- Mismanagement of the company or assets;
- Contracts including operating or shareholder agreements.
When two or more parties with a high interest in the outcome of a dispute are involved, the issue should be handled efficiently by a professional but empathetic attorney. The business litigation attorneys of SLG are well regarded by Los Angeles business owners and shareholders for our advocacy for our clients coupled with our ability to competently resolve disputes between highly involved parties by performing with the highest standard of professionalism.

The experienced Los Angeles intellectual property attorneys at Structure Law Group are here to help you solidify your company’s most valuable intellectual property assets by providing extensive legal protections. Trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets are all deserving of a legal course of action when another party misappropriates your business’s intellectual property.
Your business may be entitled to a court order preventing the offending party from using your intellectual property on top of recovery of monetary losses that resulted from the misappropriation. Whatever conflict you are facing, SLG will assess your options for remedy in current conflicts, as well as enhancing intellectual property security.Employment Disputes
No matter what size the company, when your business employs someone the potential for conflicts and disputes increases. Employment disputes are unique to the individual and work situation, and can include allegations of:
- Wage and Hour Violations,
- Wrongful Termination,
- Retaliation, and
- ADA Compliance Failure.
Conversely, if you believe that an employee or former employee has violated an employment contract, non‐disclosure agreement, or agreement to refrain from using your trade secrets, you may also want to bring an action against that employee to enforce the contract and seek damages. In either case, SLG has attorneys who possess the litigation and dispute resolution experience necessary to help you avoid the potentially devastating affects an employment suit can have on your business.Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
SLG’s Los Angeles litigation lawyers have a breadth of experience representing clients in a variety of alternative dispute resolution forums including arbitration and mediation. Typically, parties involved in a business lawsuit choose alternative dispute resolution when they want to efficiently and economically resolve the issue and forego the burden of the long process of litigation. Our menu of ADR services encompasses:Arbitration
Arbitration is an alternative to long‐form trial, but functions like a trial without a judge and jury. In California, a single neutral arbitrator usually presides over the arbitration hearing, or the parties can agree to a panel of arbitrators. Much like a long form trial, parties can call witnesses, cross‐examine witnesses who testify against them for the opposing party, present evidence, and raise claims and defenses. The arbitrator or panel will then rule on the admissibility of evidence and ultimately issue a written ruling based on the facts and applicable law.
The Los Angeles business litigation team at SLG has arbitration skills and experience for businesses of many industries and sizes. We can help you resolve your dispute in arbitration to secure the best possible outcome in line with your goals.Mediation
Mediation is another popular form of alternate dispute resolution that cuts back on the time and costs of taking a lawsuit all the way through trial. The courts, especially the federal California District Courts where business mediation is most common, favor mediation as a means of resolving disputes. Where arbitration results in a ruling the outcome of mediation is non‐binding, and neither party relinquishes the right to a future trial for the same underlying issues should the need arise. The court mediator is trained to take each side’s proposals into consideration, and work with all parties involved to find agreeable terms. Due to its’ cooperative atmosphere, mediation is a highly cost‐effective process that many business owners see as a beneficial alternative to arbitration.
SLG Los Angeles business litigation lawyers will assist you in clarifying your exact needs and goals for mediation, and coach you in best practices so that you get what you need out of mediation.Negotiation
Sometimes an intermediary is not necessary for two disputing parties to achieve desirable results in a disputed issue. SLG’s seasoned business attorneys take the time to listen to our clients, and provide personal attention throughout the dispute resolution process to fully understand the client’s evolving needs and goals. We remain clear on what your definition of success is, and then provide tough advocacy and polished negotiation to see to that successful outcome.
