Georgia Attorneys Experienced in All Types of Business Disputes & Litigation
With offices in Atlanta and Watkinsville (near Athens), we represent both Georgia and out-of-state companies in business disputes and litigation statewide. Our practice encompasses matters involving:
Disputes Among Partners/Shareholders
Disputes among partners or shareholders can derail a business’s operations, and, in many cases, they can threaten the business’s viability as a going concern. If you are dealing with a partner or shareholder dispute, we can advise you regarding possible solutions, and we can work with you to develop and execute a strategy that targets your desired outcome.
Division of Business Assets
When a dispute leads to a business’s liquidation, its assets will generally need to be divided among its owners. Of course, this can be easier said than done. We have significant experience advising clients regarding the division of business assets, and we can assist with protecting your interest in your business’s assets through both informal and formal means.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Breaches of fiduciary duty can cause immediate, significant, and in some cases, irreparable harm. A prompt response is critical, and businesses must be prepared to do what is necessary to protect their assets. Our lawyers can seek immediate injunctive relief if necessary, and we can work quickly to seek to recover your company’s losses.
Breach of Contract
Breach of contract disputes can involve a broad range of issues, and they can call for a variety of different approaches. We have experience handling disputes involving all types of contracts, and we can use this experience to protect your company.
Theft of Trade Secrets or Other Confidential Information
Similar to breach of fiduciary duty, when dealing with theft of trade secrets or other confidential information, taking prompt legal action can be critical. At Stembridge Taylor, we are prepared to take immediate action if necessary, and our lawyers will rely on their decades of collective experience to preserve your company’s intangible assets to the fullest extent possible.
