Business Law & Employment
If you own or operate a business, you need straightforward representation from skilled business litigation lawyers. Goldfinch Winslow has extensive experience representing businesses and entrepreneurs in all types of commercial and business litigation.
We understand that disputes can easily arise regarding the interpretation of contracts or the rights and responsibilities under a commercial agreement. Lawsuits often begin when parties cannot amicably allocate assets and liabilities to partners, shareholders, or other business owners. Sometimes competitors will unfairly compete by misappropriating trademarks or other intellectual property – or interfering with existing contractual relationships. Employees that accept employment in violation of non-compete agreements – or reveal trade secrets to competitors – are also the cause of business litigation.
Our attorneys can help you with:
- Breach of contract disputes
- Breach of lease
- Fraud, Misrepresentation, or Civil Theft
- Construction disputes
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty and Business Torts
- South Carolina Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices
- Shareholder conflicts
- Violation of non-compete and confidentiality agreements relating to trade secrets
- Infringement on intellectual property rights, and unfair competition claims
- Dissolution of corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships
Goldfinch Winslow develops and adapts our litigation strategies to the particular facts of each case. Our firm advises clients regarding the costs and benefits of various approaches. We assess and work to minimize potential litigation risks at each stage. As part of this process, we evaluate the feasibility of less expensive alternatives to litigation – including but not limited to – alternative dispute resolution and mediation.
We utilize this approach through each step of the litigation process, from pre-suit diligence, to pre-trial discovery and through the trial and the appeals process. We pride ourselves in finding a balance between asserting rights and reducing liability exposure; without sacrificing aggressive advocacy.
