Experienced Litigation Team Helps Advance Your Business Interests in Charleston

Skilled attorneys help South Carolina clients resolve complex business law matters

When a conflict of any kind threatens to interfere with your ability to conduct business, it’s time to consult with an experienced attorney. At Wills Massalon & Allen LLC in Charleston, our attorneys have been advising individuals and businesses on business law disputes for  years. We recognize that your business is your livelihood and you cannot afford to have a partnership dispute or tort derail your day-to-day operations. Drawing on our decades of experience and business acumen, we carefully assess your objectives and determine the best option for resolving your case.

Partnership and shareholder disputes

Our firm regularly helps business partners and shareholders settle many different types of conflicts and disagreements. We understand that as a business owner, you need to wrap up your partnership dispute as quickly and cost-effectively as possible to prevent continued disruption of your business. When determining the best method for resolving your partnership or shareholder dispute, our lawyers carefully review your business goals, finances, agreements, and contracts. Some examples of common partnership and shareholder disputes our litigation team handles include:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty — Each partner in your business has a duty to act in the best interests of the company. If a partner puts his own best interests ahead of the company’s and that action hurts your business, our litigators can take action.
  • Unfair distribution of workload — In some partnerships, one partner handles the day-to-day operations while the other provides spending capital. In the event that a partner feels there has been an unfair distribution of work, a dispute may arise.
  • Disagreement over company direction — One of the most common reasons that partners and shareholders end up in litigation is because they cannot degree on the direction their company should head in.
  • Disagreement over the spending of company resources — Many partnership and shareholder disputes stem from a disagreement over how company funds should be allocated and spent.

We understand that the complexity of your case is based on the size of your business, the number of partners, and the issue at hand. Regardless of how difficult these disputes appear to be, our attorneys are ready to use their extensive experience to fight in court on your behalf.

Breach of contract litigation

Whether you are an entrepreneur or CEO, contracts are an essential part of doing business. That means the business you conduct is only as solid as the contract you sign. A poorly written or ambiguous contract can actually inhibit business growth and lead to litigation.

Our lawyers routinely represent business owners in breach of contract cases where the other party or parties fail to honor their contractual obligations. If you suspect a contract breach, we can carefully review your contract to determine whether a breach has occurred and, if so, file a suit to enforce the contract’s terms and obtain relief.

Business torts

Our firm has more than a decade of experience representing clients in business tort cases. If your business suffers harm as a result of an act or omission by another party, you may have grounds to file a claim. Common examples of business torts we handle include:

  • Fraud
  • Negligence
  • Unfair Trade Practices Act (UTPA) violations
  • Trade secret violations
  • Lender liability
  • Noncompete agreement violations

In the event that you are defending against a business tort, we are ready to protect your rights. Our business litigation experience, our attorneys are able to quickly discern valid claims that threaten your business from frivolous actions that have no legal standing.
