Disputes are an unavoidable part of doing business, but how you handle them can make all the difference in your profitability. With the help of an experienced business litigator, there are steps you can take to minimize conflict and resolve disputes efficiently and economically. Since 2000, the Lunsford Law Firm has represented businesses in all phases of disputes, from arbitration and negotiation to litigation in state and federal courts at both the trial and the appellate level. I was named one of Sacramento’s top business law attorneys by Sacramento Magazine for my skillful representation of clients in construction law, breach of contract, commercial real estate, intellectual property and other areas of law. My successes in the courtroom offer my clients an advantage, and I am thoroughly prepared to battle on your business’s behalf in negotiations or at trial.
The construction industry is unique in business for the complexity of issues involving everything from liability to contract interpretation. My firm understands the problems faced by contractors and builders and works with them to resolve disputes in a cost-effective manner. I have extensive experience handling:
If you are dealing with a mechanic’s lien, wage liability or any other issue associated with California construction law, I draw upon my extensive knowledge of the industry to protect your rights.
Contracts affect every aspect of business, so it is important to ensure that agreements are soundly drafted, correctly interpreted and their provisions are enforced. My firm protects your enterprise in cases where others fail to live up to their contractual obligations or you are being accused of a breach. Whether a dispute involves the organization of a commercial entity, defense of an employee’s claim for discrimination, terms of a consumer loan, or the limits of insurance coverage, I will advocate strenuously on your behalf to reach the optimal outcome.
To ensure your property rights are protected, you need skilled representation from an attorney who knows California law and the state’s commercial real estate landscape. Drawing on nearly two decades of experience handling commercial property transactions and litigation, I represent clients in a range of commercial real estate litigation, including defending real estate claims relating to contractual disputes, judicial and nonjudicial foreclosures, trespass injury to real property, and drainage issues. My efforts to ensure enforcement and operation of restrictive covenants and deed restrictions provide me with a base of knowledge to help resolve any type of real estate conflict.
Businesses make substantial investments in intellectual property, including patents, trademarks, trade dress and the creation of copyrighted material. These investments fall under constant risk from others who use these products without permission. I understand the complexities of defending all forms of intellectual property from infringement, which often involves application of international law as well as federal law. If you are seeking to protect a trademark or have been accused of violating a copyright, my firm will strenuously advocate on your behalf to protect your rights.
