Business Dispute Counselling
Businesses often find themselves in disputes with a supplier, vendor or customer. Business owners and professional partnerships can have disagreements with each other, eventually leading to polarization and dissolution. Current and former employees and employers may have questions or disputes arising out of non-compete, non-solicitation or confidentiality agreements.
