Business Disputes

Business disputes are an unfortunate reality in today’s business climate. Whether your business is large or small, a dispute with a customer, vendor, partner, employee, contracting party, or even a competitor will inevitably arise. Ironically, it seems that the more successful your business is, the more likely it is you will be sued. Business disputes can range from minor disputes to serious disputes that threaten the profitability of your company – or even its very existence.

Shanahan McDougal has earned a reputation for aggressively and creatively resolving business disputes for its clients, both in and out of the courtroom. The firm understands that these disputes are a distraction. They divert time, money, and resources away from running your business, and they ultimately impact your bottom line.

Whatever the means or forum for resolving the dispute, Shanahan McDougal will help you develop a clear plan for success. Our lawyers will work with you to clearly outline your business goals and objectives and will aggressively pursue a favorable resolution as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can get back to business.
