BUSINESS LITIGATION


It is an unfortunate reality that internal and external conflicts related to a business can put a strain on operations and individuals and redirect resources that could have been used on the intended pursuits of the business. Our attorneys have extensive experience in advising clients on the most prudent courses of legal action in your business endeavors. Bishop Korus Friend, P.S.C. represents businesses, executives, investors, and small businesses in business litigation, contract disputes, business torts/interference with contract, joint venture/partnership claims, development rights, fraud, and other commercial litigation.

Breach of Contract
Federal and Kentucky law have remedies for individuals and business entities that have been damaged as a result of the breach of an oral or written contract. If you are involved in a contract dispute, the best way to preserve your legal rights is to contact an attorney.

Depending on the facts of your case, an attorney may be able to help you seek money damages or specific performance under the contract. Under some statutes, you also may be able to recover other damages as a result of the breach of contract.

The most common types of business and commercial contract disputes that our firm handles involve:

  • Employment agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Severance agreements
  • Purchase and sale agreements
  • Joint venture agreements
  • Partnership agreements

Our attorneys have experience in all phases of contract disputes, including pre-litigation demands, negotiation, mediation, and arbitration, as well as post-claim litigation and mediation.
 
Fraud
Businesses and consumers rely on each other’s honesty when entering into business transactions. Fulfillment of promises in business dealings is a fundamental aspect of successful transactions. When a party to a business exchange knowingly or recklessly makes false representations or commits other types of fraud, trust is broken — and, often, real losses occur.

In a successful legal claim of fraud, the wronged party will recover compensation equal to the loss, and possibly punitive damages as well.

Bishop Korus Friend, P.S.C. attorneys have experience representing individuals, professionals and businesses who have been victimized by commercial fraud. We welcome inquiries from individuals or businesses in need of legal counsel and advocacy related to fraud of any variety.

Antitrust
Our lawyers represent clients in private actions against corporations for violating antitrust laws. Under both state and federal antitrust laws, private parties can bring antitrust claims seeking treble damages, injunctive relief, and recovery of attorneys' fees. Such lawsuits may assert a variety of antitrust violations, such as price fixing, price discrimination, distribution restraints, and monopolization.
