Commercial Litigation, Construction Litigation, Condemnation and Land Use Litigation and Condemnation Construction Litigation
Commercial litigation requires a broad understanding of everything from courtroom strategy and contract law to financing and tax law. At the Lum Firm, our commercial litigation attorneys serve the legal needs of businesses by helping to resolve their business disputes. For over 150 years, our firm has provided excellent client service and professional representation to individuals and businesses. Our longevity is due to a consistent commitment to excellence that has attracted talented attorneys and national clientele.
We handle a variety of complex commercial/litigation matters in both State and Federal Court at the Trial and Appellate level, including corporate deadlocks and buyouts, commercial real estate disputes, Shareholder and partnership disputes, franchise and distributor litigation, officer and director liability, banking and UCC litigation, estate litigation, international reinsurance claims, civil RICO litigation, defense of claims against the airline and trucking industries, claims on behalf of the container-leasing industry against stevedoring concerns, and punitive damage claims in the context of business litigation. In addition, we handle all aspects of eminent domain, including direct takings, inverse takings and redevelopment law, construction law issues, construction defect claims, bidding disputes, community association litigation, and real property tax appeals.
Breach of contract actions are a common basis for commercial litigation. Vendor contracts, real estate matters, copyright and trademark infringements, employment disputes, and many other litigation issues can seriously impact the bottom line of a business. If an officer, or a member of the board of directors, is accused of self-dealing, we handle cases involving a breach of fiduciary duty. Disputes may arise in the form of unfair competition claims, or in the process of selling a business. Whatever the form of the dispute, our commercial litigation attorneys can help.
