Franchising offers tremendous benefits to both parties involved, however, like any business relationship, disagreements do occur. Our team of Houston franchise dispute attorneys at Williams Hart understands that you have a lot at stake in the event of a franchise dispute, whether it is your livelihood, your brand, or both. We represent both franchisees and franchisers to protect their positions through an agreement dispute in Houston and will take swift, aggressive action when necessary to enforce that agreement.

Intellectual Property

 

Intellectual property is a category of property that includes a work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a design, to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark, etc. If another party is benefiting from your ideas without your permission, it is theft and a violation of your rights. Take swift and aggressive action to stop this infringement and recover what you are owed. Our Houston intellectual property dispute attorneys have the skill and resources to pursue any individual or entity that has stolen from you.

Securities Litigation

 

Securities litigation is a highly specialized area of practice that encompasses financial business investments in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, technology, aerospace, healthcare, retail, entertainment, accounting, and banking. When your investments take a hard hit, it can be devastating for the future of you and your family, particularly if you are nearing retirement age. Williams Hart wants you to know that you have somewhere to turn if this happens to you. Our securities litigation attorneys will work to prove the wrongdoing of the party that directly contributed to the losses you’ve suffered, and seek to recover the damages.

Contract Disputes

 

Business contracts create specific obligations that must be fulfilled by the parties who entered into the agreement. When one party fails to fulfill its contractual obligation, it is known as a “breach” of contract. You could be left facing a heavy financial burden or placed at a significant strategic disadvantage professionally if you are involved with a breached contract. Fortunately, a signed contract gives you the means to enforce your position in just these kinds of situations. You kept your word; the Houston contract dispute attorneys at Williams Hart can work to make sure the other party follows through on their word as well.

Consumer Protection

 

Without the proper safeguards in place, some Houston businesses may take advantage of consumers to cut costs. There are certain legal protections that are intended to temper this kind of behavior, but these protections from unethical actions are ineffective unless they are enforced. If you have been harmed by a defective product, swindled by unfair business practices, or taken advantage of by a company in any other way, the experienced consumer protection attorneys at Williams Hart will fight to recover what you have lost due to negligent or unethical businesses.
