Commercial Litigation

Contract Disputes & Commercial Litigation Attorney

Handling Commercial Litigation Matters at the Local, National and International Levels

While most of the litigation is centered on Plaintiff's personal injury trial work, Thomas M. Paris also handles commercial litigation cases on a contingency basis, as well as for a traditional hourly arrangement, or fixed fee. Small and mid-sized businesses often would rather turn to a litigator then their corporate counsel to handle these matters. Commercial disputes involving breach of contract, collections, arbitration and mediations, shareholder disputes, and other business litigation are a regular and significant part of the practice.

Office LocationPast clients have included real estate developers, construction contractors, manufacturers, advertising agencies, restaurants, entrepreneurs, other attorneys, and employees.

Business disputes do not have to end up in a lawsuit. Strategic pre-suit negotiations may achieve your goal, keep your reputation intact, and preserve the relationship with a customer or vendor. If pre-suit negotiations fail, arbitration or mediation can be considered, which likewise keeps your company out of court.

Failing an out-of-court solution, litigation may be the only answer. Lawsuits are expensive and time consuming for both sides, so exploring options which will still achieve your goal is often recommended. Many businesses and companies have already gone through at least some of these stages before they contact us. In those instances, a second attempt may be worthwhile, or proceeding directly to litigation may be more advised. You will be a part of that decision, and your good business sense coupled with experienced legal advice from Thomas M. Paris will allow you to make the best decision under the circumstances.
