Attorneys Upholding Clients’ Interests In Business And Contract Disputes
A business dispute may have an interior or exterior focus. Internally, business partners may disagree profoundly on issues such as accounting methods or buyout terms. Externally, businesses may struggle with problematic relationships with suppliers, subcontractors, customers and commercial landlords, to name a few.
At Ashwell & Ashwell, PLLC, our attorneys help clients know what to expect and how to negotiate or litigate a satisfactory resolution as they seek to prevent or reverse losses.
A contract dispute may stem from a business or commercial transaction or some other type of agreement or relationship. Examples include employer-employee conflicts, insurer-policyholder disputes and clashes between residential or commercial landlords and tenants over leases, property usage or other issues.
At Ashwell & Ashwell, PLLC, our attorneys often say that the best way to resolve a business or contract dispute is to prevent it altogether through a clearly articulated agreement from the start. Our law firm provides trustworthy counsel and representation for Virginians entering into contracts of many types.
When the stakes are high, legal counsel is especially urgent. It is far easier to prevent trouble than to fix it.
