Business & Commercial Litigation

About Business and Commercial Litigation

Owning a business almost guarantees that you will be in civil court at some point. You may be forced to file a business lawsuit against a customer who refuses to pay an invoice or against another company that is fixing prices and artificially increasing your costs. Business owners hire lawyers to help protect their interests and navigate the legal process.

We have a strong record of success confronting wrongdoers who engage in bad business practices. For example, we regularly prove claims against those who rig bids, engage in activities that violate United States antitrust laws, steal business opportunities, take property, break promises or otherwise cause our clients to suffer economic loss. We will first attempt to reach a reasonable settlement; however, if such a resolution is impossible, we will force wrongdoers to make our clients whole through the courts.

Our expertise as trial lawyers motivates opponents to quickly recognize the value of fair arms-length negotiation and alternative dispute resolution. We also welcome the opportunity to meet our opponents in the courtroom when necessary. We draw upon an established network of resources and state-of-the-art technologies. Some say that our success is due to a “tough” attitude. We call it having a passion for justice and fairness.

Bonsignore Trial Lawyers has acted as general, special and trial counsel for businesses ranging from multinational corporations to sole proprietorships. We have advised cities and counties in a variety of states on causes of action that may allow them to acquire revenue and on laws that prevent them from recovering budget funds taken by lawbreakers. We have also acted as trial and special counsel for unions, states, state officials, and cities. We take great pride in our work and results. We work hard to earn from each client the trust and confidence required to be looked to as their “trusted advisor.”
