Business Law and Commercial Litigation


Carr Maloney attorneys are counsel to clients of all sizes from sole proprietorships to publicly traded corporations. We counsel clients starting new business ventures regarding creation and formation of the business entity.

From new businesses to established ones, we assist with all phases of operation including the preparation of contracts, assignments, buy/sell agreements, contract review and any other business or corporate needs. Our understanding of a clients’ business also helps us to navigate potential legal quagmires that may arise from operations, employee/labor relations, insurance dealings, business planning, commercial transactions, and regulatory mandates. 

Succession Planning:

Not to be overlooked is the much-neglected process of succession planning.  Our attorneys work with business owners to develop a business succession plan that fits their needs.  The process need not be complicated with guidance from attorneys who have experience developing succession plans.

Commercial Litigation:

In business there will be disputes and not all of them can be resolved amicably. When disputes must be litigated, we understand the importance of achieving a resolution that minimizes additional risk and is cost effective.  Carr Maloney business litigators handle commercial matters aggressively, efficiently and effectively. 

We have successfully tried a multitude of such cases through to verdict. Those cases run the gamut of business and commercial issues, including: 

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Business dissolution,
  • Civil conspiracy
  • Covenants not to compete
  • Financial disputes
  • Intellectual property
  • Partnership disputes
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Tortious interference with contracts and business expectancies
  • Uniform Trade Secrets Act
  • Other employment and related claims. 

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our litigation attorneys are very comfortable in the courtroom, but they are equally adept at resolving matters through alternative dispute resolution. We are sensitive to our client’s economic concerns and, when in the client’s best interests, resolve matters through mediation, arbitration or other cost-effective means.
