 A fraudulent transaction is every business nightmare. It can cause a business to experience a financial loss. Investors and other business partners usually avoid a company dealing with fraud. You see, no one wants to deal with entities with a bad record. This bad news usually reaches the clients faster than anything else does. In addition to this, they may suffer external confidence, decrease company morale, and increased audit costs.

So, if someone stole from you, misled, or defrauded you in any way. Our experienced Houston commercial litigation lawyers will work on your behalf to recover what you have lost.

Franchise Disputes

 

 Franchising offers tremendous benefits to both parties involved. For franchisors, the primary benefit is the ability to use other people’s money to expand the brand faster than they would on their own. At the same time, the franchisees have a higher chance of success than if they were the sole owner. However, like any business relationship, disputes occur and may need a lawyer to intervene. In the event of a franchise dispute, a lot is at stake for the parties involved. Our team of franchise dispute attorneys at Williams Hart understands this.

Whether it is your livelihood, your brand, or both; we represent both franchisees and franchisors. Our ultimate goal is to protect their positions throughout the disagreement process. Nevertheless, we will take swift, aggressive action when necessary to enforce that agreement.

Intellectual Property

 

Intellectual property is any property that includes work or invention from a person’s creativity. In short, it refers to creations of the mind, such as a manuscript or a design. The creator of these inventions or work has rights, and they may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark, etc. If another party benefits from your ideas without your permission; this is theft and a violation of your rights. You should take swift and aggressive action to stop this infringement and recover what is rightfully yours. Williams Hart law firm commercial litigation team specializes in intellectual property disputes. Our lawyers have the skills and resources to pursue any person or entity who stole from you.

Securities Litigation

Securities litigation is a highly specialized area of practice. It encompasses financial business investments in various industries. When your investments take a hard hit, it can be devastating. Not to mention it affects the financial future of you and your family; in particular, 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 other party’s wrongdoing. We will prove that their actions 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 agreed. A breach of contract is when one party fails to fulfill its contractual obligation. When one person breaches a contract, the other parties face a heavy financial burden.

There are two types of contract breaches. The first is a material breach, in which one party does not perform his or her duty. This usually results in the contract being irreparable. The party affected by this breach can sue the party for damages. The second is a minor breach, in which the core of the contract has not changed. Both parties must still fulfill the contract when a minor breach occurs. But, the party who has not breached the agreement can still sue the other party for damages.

Fortunately, a signed contract gives you the means to enforce your position in just these kinds of situations. You kept your word. Our Houston contract dispute attorneys at Williams Hart can work to make sure the other party follows through on their word as well.

 

Consumer Protection

 

The Consumer Protection Act, implemented in 1986, allows easy and fast compensation to consumer grievances. It covers all goods and services in both the public and private sectors. It thereby helps to prevent unfair business practices. Without these proper safeguards in place, some Houston businesses may take advantage of consumers to cut costs. Unless enforced, these protections from unethical actions are ineffective.

Have you suffered harm from a defective product? Have you been swindled by unfair business practices or taken advantage of by a company? You do not have to fight alone. The experienced consumer protection attorneys at Williams Hart will fight to recover what you have lost.
