Addressing business disputes in Georgia

Running a business means being prepared for all sorts of eventualities. Although you may have felt you were prepared for any eventuality, you still ended up having to deal with the more unpleasant side of the business world — disputes. Business disputes can interrupt your daily operations and negatively influence the future. Addressing these issues is key to survival of your business.

Business disputes are complex

Your business is unique, which means that you will face your own unique problems. However, these problems often fall into broad categories that many other business owners in Georgia also deal with at some point in time. Just a few examples of such problems and disputes include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Shipping disputes
  • Partner litigation
  • Trade secret disputes
  • Real estate contract litigation
  • Noncompete agreements
  • Fraud
  • Unfair competition
  • Trademark infringement
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Merger disputes

Disputes do not always arise from other businesses or customers, either. In fact, disputes often involve partners, executives, shareholders and employees. While you may feel uncomfortable dealing addressing disputes with those personally involved in your business, failing to do so would lead to more problems as difficult matters rarely — if ever — resolve themselves.

You do not have to take on this burden by yourself. As a business owner, you already know that it is a good idea to reach out for guidance in areas with which you are not familiar. Working closely with an attorney who is knowledgeable in Georgia business law would be wise when dealing with business disputes.
