Business Disputes

There are many different types of business disputes including contractual disputes, partnership disputes, and shareholder disputes. Our experienced attorneys at Knight Law P.A. can guide you through the process of maneuvering these cases which can be extremely difficult due to potential disruptions in business operations. At Knight Law we will give your case the full attention that it deserves to help get you justice. Give yourself peace of mind and put Knight Law in your corner.

Contractual Disputes

Contractual disputes may typically occur due to one party breaching the contract. Sometimes this can occur due to potentially ambiguous interpretations as to the meaning of key words within a contract. We can help you resolve your contractual dispute, update the terms of your agreement, or review your existing contract to make sure you are protected, and more. Whatever your dispute may be, put a Knight in your corner and get your issue resolved effectively.

Complex Litigation

Complex litigation involves lawsuits dealing with many moving parts such as multiple parties, more than one corporation, or a complex business or financial system at play. Usually, these proceedings require a firm with a broader understanding of business and enterprise. Large amounts of money are typical in these cases which can add to their difficulty. Picking the right attorney for your complex litigation case is paramount. Put a Knight in your corner and get your issue resolved effectively.

Partnership Disputes

We represent a variety of clients involved in a legal dispute between partners. Whether both partners want to separate and no longer wish to work together, or one partner has a legal complaint against his/her business partner, Knight Law can help. Partnership disputes are very fragile for businesses since they take time and money to resolve and can lead to bad company decisions along the way. Resolving a partnership dispute depends on the type of partnership involved and the details of that particular situation. At Knight Law, we can guide you through your options effectively so that your company can get back to normal as soon as possible.

Shareholder Disputes

Oftentimes, board members of a company have disagreements over contracts or the general direction of the company. Other times, a minority shareholder holding less than 5% ownership of the business may feel that he or she is being overlooked in the decision process or not receiving the funds they are entitled to. Whoever owns a larger stock or ownership of the company will typically have an advantage in these disputes. There are various routes that can be taken to resolve these disputes. At Knight Law our unique experience can help you navigate these complex situations as seamlessly as possible.

Starting a Business

Starting a business can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. When starting a business, it is essential that you have the right lawyers who can walk you through the legal processes of corporate formation so that you can focus on getting your business running. Knight Law has the experience you need to get your business set up and ready to grow.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty Litigation

Many professional relationships are hinged upon the concept of fiduciary duties. Fiduciary duties require an individual to act in the best interests of another individual – even at the expense of one’s own best interests. These duties are common between business partners, shareholders, trustees, and other professional service providers. When an individual has violated their fiduciary duty to another, they can be responsible for the damages caused. Typically, in order to establish a case of breach of fiduciary duty a plaintiff must prove that a fiduciary relationship existed, that the duty from that relationship was breached, and that it caused damage to the plaintiff.

At Knight Law we can help you determine what kinds of compensation you may be entitled to and the best way in which to navigate that process. Contact our experienced business litigation attorneys at Knight Law for a free consultation.

Business Torts

A business tort typically occurs when the misconduct of one party causes damages to a business in the form of lost revenue, lost opportunities, or damaged reputation. Common business tort cases involve fraud, unfair competition, interference of contract, libel or slander, and theft. Working with reliable business attorneys that regularly handle cases like this can be crucial when seeking compensation that you may be entitled to.

At Knight Law, we always strive to give you our full attention and commitment when fighting on your behalf. Give yourself peace of mind and put Knight Law in your corner.

Yirmi and his team are extremely knowledgeable and very very reliable. They always took my calls and acted like true professionals throughout the whole process. I'm very happy with the results and how it worked out. I would highly recommend Mr. Knight and Knight Law.

Brian Danziger

I have used this firm a few times for myself and family members. Their out-of-the-box approach to litigation is what really, in my opinion, makes Yirmi Knight and his staff the full legal package. I’m loving the opportunity to write this review.

Dr. Danielle Katz, DNP PMHNP

English is not my first language but Yirmi and his team were so patient. They took me through every step of the process on my injury claim. Thank you so much. Great work.

I never wound up going forward with a lawsuit but the consultation alone was so informative and clear. They answered all of my questions. I will definitely use them if something comes up in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of business partnerships?
The three different types of business partnerships are general partnerships, joint ventures, and limited partnerships. A general partnership is the most basic and is an agreement between two or more individuals in which profits and liability are shared among the partners. In a general partnership, each partner has unlimited liability and is subject to seizure of their personal assets in certain circumstances. These partnerships require little paperwork and are easier to set up than corporations or LLCs. A joint venture is formed when two entities pool their resources and join to form a new entity which may be structured as a partnership, LLC, or corporation. Joint ventures are typically formed to allow two companies to use their different areas of expertise to capitalize on an opportunity. Lastly, in a limited partnership, the general partner has unlimited liability and is involved in managing most of the business, and the limited partners play a smaller role and typically provide an initial investment. Limited partners are only held liable to their initial investment. If you are in a dispute within your partnership agreement, contact Knight Law to discuss your case.
What are the different legal structures I can use for starting my business?
The various structures you can use to start your business include sole proprietorships, limited liability companies, corporations, and partnerships. They each have their own unique benefits. If you are not sure what legal structure to choose, need help registering your business, or think you may need to change your legal structure, contact us for a free consultation.
What should I do if someone threatens to sue me over a business dispute?
If you receive written communication that person or company is threatening to sue you, it is important to assess the claim’s legitimacy and respond within the timeline provided. In many cases, you may seek a settlement before going to court to avoid hefty legal fees. However, if you are confident that you can defend yourself, going to court may be your best option. Contact us if a person or company has threatened to sue you, and we will assess your case and guide you on the best course of action to take.
