Knoxville Commercial Litigation Attorney
The longer you stay in business, the more inevitable it becomes you will either sue or be sued at some point. Many disputes can be resolved without formal legal intervention, but a fraction require litigation to protect your rights and interests appropriately. In those situations, nothing is more important than getting legal help from an experienced and successful trial lawyer. Knoxville commercial litigation attorney E. Michael Brezina, III, has extensive litigation experience. Brezina Law, PLLC, will help you with practical advice and pre-suit litigation strategy and can ably represent you as plaintiff or defendant in any Knoxville mediation, arbitration or courtroom hearing.
Breach of Contract Disputes
Business owners enter into contracts every day with customers, employees, suppliers, vendors, advertisers, landlords and countless others. Many elements must be in place to form a valid and enforceable contract, including a valid offer and acceptance, adequate consideration, mutual assent and a “meeting of the minds” over the purpose and terms of the contract. When one party is thought not to be keeping up its end of the bargain (such as by not performing or not paying), the other party might resort to litigation or arbitration to settle the matter. As a law firm that assists business and commercial clients in a wide range of contract drafting and negotiation services, Brezina Law, PLLC, is well-positioned to represent you in a Knox County breach of contract claim.
Business disputes can arise even without a contractual relationship between the parties. Brezina Law, PLLC, is ready to bring claims or defend you against allegations of unfair competition or deceptive business and trade practices, or business torts such as fraud, misrepresentation, misappropriation of trade secrets, tortious interference with contractual relations, and more. Tennessee business torts involving certain consumer protection laws include provisions for the prevailing party to recover attorney fees, making these cases even more important to handle successfully. Let us protect your rights, your business interests and your invaluable reputation.
