Business Litigation

Throughout the course of business, you will inevitably be faced with some form of litigation.  Perhaps a vendor breached a major contract, your insurance company refuses to provide coverage, or maybe OSHA cited you for a workplace hazard and you need help attending an informal.  When these type of matters arise, Nowakowski Legal PLLC is their to assist you in acquiring the outcome your company deserves. We are more than capable of assisting you in such matters as:

Breach and/or Contract Enforcement

In a perfect world, agreements would be entered into, both sides would benefit and be pleased with the outcome, and no disputes would arise. But in the real world of business, delays happen, financial problems can crop up, and other unexpected events can occur to hinder or even prevent a successful contract from being carried out.  

When you find yourself in need of assistance in enforcing a contract, or if an entity is claiming that your company has breached an agreement, Nowakowski Legal PLLC is there to assist you in resolving the matter.

 

Employee Disputes

Your employees are one of your company's greatest assets.  Unfortunately, every once and a while, disputes may arise with an employee and you may find yourself needing an attorney to resolve the conflict.  While litigation is generally a last resort, it may be required to protect your business from the wrongful actions of disgruntled employees.

Whether it be a breach of a non-disclosure agreement, a dispute as to an employee's compensations package, or perhaps even a former employee ignoring a non-compete, Nowakowski Legal PLLC is there to represent you.

 

Regulatory Agency Disputes

Agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration exist to enforce specific rules and regulations that businesses are expected to adhere to.  When you find yourself the subject of an investigation by any of the above agencies, you should immediately seek legal representation to assist you with your dealings with any of these agencies.  In the event that a citation or an action is brought against you by one of these agencies, having an attorney well versed in dealing with administrative agencies is extremely important.

Nowakowski Legal PLLC is available to assist you in your dealings with any regulatory agency that your business finds itself involved.  

 

Commercial Collections and Mechanic's Liens

You’ve sent letters, called their office, followed up, but still that one pesky client has not yet paid. Businesses need to make money to keep running, and sometimes your clients need a reminder that agreements are meant to be kept. When you need to enforce a contract for payment, Nowakowski Legal PLLC is there to assist you. We will make sure that your non-paying client is aware of their monetary responsibility toward you, and if they still refuse to pay, will pursue legal recourse against them on your behalf.

Additionally, we are able to assist construction based businesses in notifying, filing and pursuing mechanic’s liens against non-paying contractors, owners, etc. In the event that this is an option for your company, please be sure to contact our office as soon as possible as most states place a very strict time requirement on notifying, filing and pursuing mechanic’s liens.

Mediation and Arbitration Representation

 Sometimes neither party wants to face the full brunt of a legal action and would prefer to attend a mediation; sometimes an agreement is in place that requires an arbitration take place in lieu of a court action.  Regardless, it is no less important that you have legal representation for either of these two situations.  That is doubly true for going before an arbitrator or arbitrators to resolve your dispute.  While a mediation is generally more of a negotiation before a mediator for purposes of trying to negotiate an amiable resolution between the parties, arbitration is very similar to a civil action, but with the theory that it will hopefully be quicker and less costly to the parties involved (unfortunately this is not always the case).  

Nowakowski Legal PLLC is fully available to assist you in any and all mediation negotiations or arbitration disputes you may find yourself facing. 

Insurance Coverage Disputes

If you company, then you should absolutely have professional liability and other necessary insurance policies to protect it with.  But what happens when your insurance company refuses to cover a loss to your business that you believed you had coverage on.  Its unfortunate, but sometimes you may have to dispute your insurance company's denial of claim.  This means you will need an attorney well versed in understanding policies and in dealing with insurance companies.

Nowakowski Legal PLLC is fully available to assist you in any and all disputes you may have regarding your insurance.
