Business Law

All areas of business are fraught with potential legal disputes, ranging from straight-forward breach of contract claims to complex shareholder litigation. The Law Office of Brian M. Maul, LLC is primarily a business litigation law firm. Accordingly, this firm has extensive experience litigating the following business matters:

  • Breach of Contract
  • Fraud
  • Lender Liability
  • Tortious Interference with Contractual Relations
  • Corporate Governance
  • Usurpation of Corporate Opportunity
  • Corporate Mismanagement/Waste and the Business Judgment Rule
  • Minority and Shareholder Rights

Partnership Law/Disputes

The successful resolution of partnership disputes often requires a keen assessment of numerous and complex legal principles. It is often in everyone’s best interest to work toward an amicable resolution of such disputes instead of rushing to file a law suit or dissolve a business. In many cases, it is possible to resolve disputes through negotiation and mediation. However, if a resolution of differences is not feasible under the circumstances, the Firm will guide you through your legal options, discuss the potential costs and benefits of all options, and fight for your partnership interests in the courtroom.

Business Operating Agreements/Business Sale Purchase Agreements

Although disputes can arise even in the face of unambiguous contract language, having a well-drafted Operating or Partnership Agreement can sometimes prevent disagreements or misunderstandings regarding the parties’ respective rights and responsibilities. Similarly, just as a well-drafted Operating Agreement seeks to address the rights and responsibilities between two business partners, a well-drafted Purchase Agreement can help avoid later disputes or disagreements between a seller and purchaser of a business.

We can help with the following:
