OVERVIEW

Handling complex business disputes

Commercial litigation is a significant threat to a business’s bottom line. A company’s contracts and customer relationships are often more valuable than its assets, and a competitor’s interference with those relationships can cause significant harm. If your business has suffered or has been placed at unnecessary risk because of another business or individual’s reckless, careless, or intentional misconduct, you need a team of experienced, business-minded attorneys to advance and protect your interests.

At Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, our goal is to help clients vigorously defend their business. But we also help them avoid unnecessary risks and costs related to commercial litigation. Our law firm constantly evaluates the risks and benefits of litigation and assesses the value of trial and settlement strategies with an eye toward our clients’ business goals.
