Industries and Practices - Business Litigation

There is a saying that litigators are always prepared but seldom ready, and trial attorneys are seldom prepared but always ready. At the Seabolt Law Firm, we pride ourselves on being litigators and trial attorneys who are both prepared and ready.

Not every business dispute needs to be litigated, and not every litigation matter needs to go to trial. Most business disputes that result in litigation ultimately settle, and only a small percentage go to trial. The difficulty lies in predicting which cases will go to trial, which cases will settle and on what terms. At the Seabolt Law Firm, we believe that once the decision is made to litigate a business dispute, preparing the case with a view toward trial will give our clients the best chance of success, whether through a negotiated settlement or a trial on the merits.

That said, preparing a case with a view toward trial does not necessarily require a scorched earth litigation approach or an unlimited litigation budget. Business litigation can be approached like other business transactions, balancing the investment required against the business objectives sought and the expected return on investment. At the Seabolt Law Firm, we develop litigation strategies that support our clients’ business objectives and budgetary expectations, while still supporting trial readiness and positioning the case for a successful outcome.

With this philosophy in mind, the attorneys at the Seabolt Law Firm have successfully litigated business disputes covering myriad subject matters, including:​

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Shareholder/member oppression
  • Post-purchase disputes
  • Securities fraud
  • Accounting malpractice
  • False Claims Act
  • Real estate and construction disputes
  • Cyber-fraud
  • Trade secret misappropriation
  • Antitrust and unfair competition
  • Class action defense
  • Warranty disputes
  • Supply chain disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Business torts
