Resolving Disputes for Businesses

Business litigation can stem from all types of disputes, such as:

  • Breach of contract: Failure to fulfill the terms of a contract is the most common trigger for litigation.
  • Partnership disputes: Disagreements among business partners over decisions, profits, or business direction.
  • Shareholder disputes: Conflicts involving objections to corporate management, the direction of the company, governance issues, and minority shareholder oppression
  • Employment issues: Disputes arising from wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, or wage and hour law violations.
  • Intellectual property infringement: Disputes over the use and ownership of intellectual property.
  • Real estate disputes: Issues related to commercial property lease, purchase, or sale.
  • Customer claims: Disputes with customers over product liability, service quality, or warranty issues.

With Schneiders & Associates on your side, you can proactively manage and often prevent such disputes. When litigation becomes necessary, count on us to provide aggressive courtroom representation. 

How Our Firm Manages Business Litigation

At Schneiders & Associates, we guide our clients through all phases of business litigation, including:

  • Filing a complaint: The process begins with filing a formal complaint, which outlines the dispute and desired outcomes.
  • Discovery: Both parties exchange relevant information and documents. This phase is critical for gathering evidence and preparing for trial.
  • Motions: Before trial, we may file motions to resolve the case or limit issues for trial.
  • Trial: If a settlement is not reached, the case goes to trial, where each side presents its arguments and evidence.
  • Judgment: The court delivers a decision that may include financial compensation or other remedies.

Trust our experienced Oxnard business litigation attorneys to advocate for your interests and work to achieve a positive outcome. 

Alternatives To Business Litigation

At Schneiders & Associates, we encourage alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration as they often provide more cost-effective and less adversarial solutions.

Mediation

Mediation involves a neutral third party, known as a mediator, who helps both sides reach a voluntary, negotiated resolution. The mediator does not decide the case but facilitates a dialogue to find common ground and mutual benefits. This highly flexible method can preserve business relationships by fostering cooperative problem-solving.

Arbitration

Arbitration is a more formal process where a neutral arbitrator acts similarly to a judge but in a less formal setting. The arbitrator listens to both parties’ arguments and evidence before making a binding decision. Arbitration is typically faster than court litigation and can be kept confidential.

Both mediation and arbitration can be tailored to your business’s specific needs, providing a discreet and efficient way to resolve disputes. Our team is well-equipped to guide you through either process and protect your interests.
