Understanding the 4 Most Common Business Disputes
Running a successful business involves many key components, including the management of relationships with employees, customers, partners, and suppliers. While most of these interactions are familiar to a business owner, there are many disputes that can interrupt even the smoothest-running business. At Garcia-Martin and Martin, we want you to have all the information when it comes to common business disputes, so that you can seek legal advice from a business litigation attorney in Houston, before the disputes become a greater problem.
- Breach of Contract: Contracts are legally binding agreements between partners or other businesses. If one of the parties bound to the contract fails to uphold the terms, or purposefully violates them, it is critical to contact a Houston business litigation attorney to help resolve your case.
- Employment Disputes: There are a variety of different kinds of employment disputes including those where employees feel discriminated against for one or more factors (sex, race, age, etc.), disagreement over salary, rejected sick or maternity leave, or unfair dismissal charges.
- Partnership Disputes: This kind of dispute tends to be the most common, as business partners may begin to disagree over time and as the business evolves. These kinds of disputes are often triggered by conflicts regarding hiring, new leadership roles within the company, and financial disparity.
- Disputes among Businesses: While a business’ relationship with other businesses is generally mutually beneficial, there are times where conflicts arise that require business litigation. Some of these include rental disputes between a business and their landlord, or supplier and material disputes, such as a construction company and their building materials supply company.
While many business disputes only require minor mediation, some require more serious legal action. If your business is facing one of these issues in the greater Houston area, contact us today to learn more about how one of our business and employment litigation attorneys can help you win your case.
