Business and Commercial Litigators Protecting Your Interests in Court
Your business deserves sophisticated legal representation in Greater Danbury
Business, corporate, and commercial litigation have formed an important core of Collins Hannafin, P.C.’s practice since 1963. Just as significantly, all of our litigators know how to keep a small dispute from getting bigger, and can resolve many difficult problems quietly and quickly, well short of trial.
In business and commercial disputes, our lawyers handle matters such as the following:
- Enforcement or defense of breach of contract claims in business, loan transactions, banking relationships, employment, and vendor or customer sales
- Disputes arising from licensing, franchising, or distribution agreements
- Claims arising under any article of the Uniform Commercial Code
- Actions involving guaranties, pledges, and other claims against third parties in collection and foreclosure actions
Additionally, we represent clients on either side of civil actions involving corporate governance, partnership dissolution, or shareholder disputes. Collins Hannafin can protect your rights under operating agreements, buy-sell agreements, or transactions involving the purchase or sale of businesses. We are experienced in the development and presentation of evidence on claims or counterclaims of fraud and misrepresentation, which are often raised in litigation originally begun to enforce corporate or partnership rights.
We have acted as lead counsel for commercial clients in Connecticut’s “Complex Litigation” courts.
Our extensive business litigation experience also covers real estate transactions, construction and development projects, and commercial landlord-tenant disputes. If you need to appeal an unfavorable trial result, or defend a jury verdict in the Appellate Court, our appellate lawyers can represent your interests at all stages of the state or federal appellate process.
We plan our clients’ litigation according to their needs
As seasoned trial attorneys, we understand the uncertainties and expense of the litigation process and do everything possible to help you stay within your budget and avoid litigation risk. We work closely with our clients at the beginning of a case to plan for each stage of the litigation, with an emphasis upon opportunities for favorable settlement, or even for alternative dispute resolution methods. High-stakes civil litigation can present challenges that some clients would rather not face, and our lawyers can help you find productive alternatives to discovery and trial that can help minimize your risk.
Business litigants have different goals and perspectives. But even parties on opposite sides of a business dispute may find common ground with respect to minimizing publicity, shortening the length of the proceedings and reducing litigation costs. Collins Hannafin’s litigators provide vigorous representation in the courtroom, in mediation and arbitration, and in settlement negotiations according to our clients’ objectives.
