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. Also, it is not uncommon for such disagreements to end up in court or arbitration.

But there is a more efficient, less-expensive way to resolve such differences short of running into court or arbitration. Lichter Law Firm’s business counselling expertise can help defuse situations before they spin out of control. In doing so, we meet with clients to explore options to avoid litigation. These might include face-to-face or telephone negotiations with the other party (or their lawyers). They could also include the renegotiation of the scope of a non-compete agreement, a discussion about changing the terms of a supplier-vendor agreement or a modification of an operating or shareholder’s agreement.

David Lichter builds on his experience in over 1,500 mediations and arbitrations and over 30 years of litigation involving a wide variety of business disputes to find creative, effective solutions to business disputes.
