Civil Law & Litigation

Our Richmond, Virginia commercial litigation and business litigation lawyers know that in today’s competitive business environment, a breached contract or failure to pay for goods or services can mean the difference between a business succeeding or failing. Likewise, partnership disputes, shareholder oppression, and a host of business torts can devastate a commercial entity, its management, shareholders, or investors.

Additionally, by the very nature of having a business, many will experience a threat of business litigation or must defend themselves against litigation by a competitor, customer, employee or vendor. Or, many times in this economy, businesses have to file lawsuits to obtain payment for work performed or services rendered, resolve shareholder and corporate governance issues, protect intellectual property rights, ensure that other parties perform their contractual obligations and to seek redress for non-contractual wrongs such as fraud, libel, negligent misrepresentation, slander and unfair business practices.

The commercial litigation attorneys at Ayers & Stolte are well prepared for all these circumstances. We strive for advantageous results before litigation, during discovery and the motions process, throughout settlement negotiations, which may include alternate dispute resolution, and during trial and appeals.
