Commercial Litigation

“The whole duty of government is to prevent crime and to preserve contracts.”
- Lord Melbourne

Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, litigation can adversely impact your business objectives and your bottom line, or even the continued viability of your company. With everything at stake, you need prudent legal advice and vigorous representation, especially if the lawsuit escalates to courtroom litigation.

At Jeffrey & Mitchell, P.C., we represent businesses across Texas in commercial litigation. Our experienced trial attorneys can help you assess your options and make informed decisions consistent with your goals. We are comfortable trying cases to a judge or jury when it makes business sense to do so, but we are sensitive to non-litigation methods such as settlement, mediation or arbitration, and consider them to be strategic tools in our arsenal.

Our business litigation attorneys will initiate and defend legal action in disputes between our business clients and a customer or another business. We represent manufacturers, retailers, service companies, lenders, energy producers/traders and other business entities in a wide variety of legal conflicts, including:
  • Contract disputes and breaches of warranties
  • Claims involving products and services
  • Insurance disputes
  • Fraud
  • Trade secret disputes
  • Employment disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Deceptive trade practices (DTPA) and business torts
  • Lender liability and foreclosure disputes
  • Insurance coverage disputes
  • Real estate, land use and landlord-tenant disputes
  • Professional liability
  • Liens and Judgments
