Business Litigation in Orange County, CA

Business disputes arise from disagreements or conflicts related to various aspects of company operations. These disputes can stem from internal conflicts among partners or shareholders to contentious relationships with external parties.

These disputes can involve:

  • Business owners
  • Partners
  • Shareholders
  • Employees
  • Contractors
  • Clients/patrons/customers
  • Suppliers
  • Competitors

Business Torts

Business litigation cases are often based on "torts," which are civil wrongs that cause harm or loss, resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act. Torts can be intentional, such as fraud or trespassing, or based on negligence, where a party's failure to exercise reasonable care causes damage. 

For example, a company may face tort-based litigation due to allegations of business defamation, where false statements have purportedly harmed the reputation of another business. Additionally, scenarios involving product liability, where a customer's injury is attributed to a business's product, are also tort-related disputes. 

Businesses must understand that tort claims can result in compensatory damages, punitive damages, and other legal remedies that significantly affect the financial well-being of an organization.

Our Business Litigation Services

At OC Trial Group, we handle all types of business litigation issues, including but not limited to: 

  • Contract disputes involving disagreements over the terms and enforcement of contracts.
  • Employment law issues can include disputes over workplace discrimination, wage and hour claims, or wrongful termination.
  • Intellectual property litigation to protect a company’s inventions, trademarks, and proprietary information.
  • Partnership disagreements, often concerning operational control, profit sharing, or breaches of fiduciary duties.
  • Shareholder actions may involve disputes over corporate governance or minority shareholder rights.

The Legal Process for Resolving Business Disputes

The legal process for resolving business disputes typically begins with an analysis of the case. If necessary, this is followed by filing a complaint by the “plaintiff,” seeking remedies to the harm allegedly suffered. Parties may then engage in discovery, negotiate settlements, and proceed to trial if no resolution is found. 

Remedies available to plaintiffs in business litigation through the courts can include:

  • Monetary compensation
    • Compensatory damages that can include damages to reimburse the plaintiff for money lost or the costs incurred because of the at-fault party’s actions
    • Consequential damages awarded for additional losses that are foreseeable due to the defendant’s actions but are not directly caused by the action itself
    • Punitive damages may be awarded when the defendant’s conduct was particularly harmful; it is intended to deter similar behavior in the future
    • Restitution aims to restore the injured party to the position they would have been if wrongdoing had not occurred
    • Liquidated damages are those previously specified and agreed upon by the parties in a contract subject to a breach 
  • Injunctive relief is a court order that compels a party to do or refrain from doing something
  • Specific performance of contractual obligations is where a court orders the at-fault party to fulfill their end of the contract rather than compensating the affected party with money
  • Rescission or reformation of contracts; rescission refers to the legal undoing of a binding agreement, effectively returning all parties to their status before the contract’s formation
