Commercial Litigation

Litigation can have a significant impact on a company’s ability to achieve its business objectives. We help companies involved in commercial litigation assess their options and make decisions consistent with their goals. We have represented companies in complex litigation and alternative dispute resolution proceedings across a broad range of industries, from health care providers and consumer products to financial services and automobile dealers. We aggressively pursue and defend our clients’ interests in matters such as breach of contract, consumer fraud and false advertising claims, corporate governance, and acquisitions.

Statistics prove that the likelihood of collecting outstanding debts reduces considerably for each thirty day period outstanding. This is especially true in Tennessee, which has one of the highest rates of bankruptcy in the nation. Delinquent accounts can be pursued up to six years in most cases, but are often written off unnecessarily. Many businesses fail to act during the most crucial collection periods, or turn to a collection agency first. In those cases, after more valuable time has passed, these collection agencies must then turn to attorneys for litigation.

If you feel like your time would be better spent pursuing new business and working on current accounts,
contact us. We take these accounts on a contingency basis and only make money when we collect on your behalf.
