Commercial Litigation

In conjunction with my of-counsel firm, Kitrick, Lewis & Harris Co. LPA, I have recently begun more concentrated work in the field of commercial litigation. What’s unique about our commercial litigation practice — compared to most others across the country — is that we will operate on a contingency-fee basis, which means that if we don’t win the case, our clients pay no legal fees. Here’s a look at some of the cases we handle:

Collection cases and disputes — This may include sale of goods disputes, distributorship disputes, factoring disputes, actions to collect on letters of credit and documents against payment, and other contractual and commercial issues.

Intellectual property disputes (copyright & patent) — This may include any creative work or invention considered to be the property of its creator.

Breach of oral and written contracts — This is a legal cause of action in which a binding agreement or bargained-for exchange is not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract by non-performance or interference with the other party’s performance.

Breach of warranties — This occurs when a warranty is violated; when the promise is broken; when goods are not as they should be at the time the sale occurs, whether or not the defect is apparent.

Fraud — This occurs when there is intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual or company.
