Business and Commercial

Adams Leclair has the flexibility and knowledge to handle a diverse range of complex commercial disputes. We successfully represent prominent and local businesses and individuals in federal, state, and local courts, as well as arbitrations.

We handle virtually every kind of business dispute, from cases dealing with tort claims such as misappropriation, fraud, faithless servant, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair competition, and unjust enrichment, to “business divorces” in closely-held corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies. Our practice includes contract negotiation and litigation, intellectual property and trade secret disputes, and commercial landlord/tenant proceedings.

A significant portion of our practice involves transactions governed by the Uniform Commercial Code, including breach of warranty and revocation claims.

We represent clients in litigation arising from Bankruptcy Court and Surrogate’s Court proceedings, such as preference actions and disputes over estate assets.

We advise and represent employers and employees regarding restrictive covenants (agreements not to compete or solicit customers) and employment contracts.

Whatever challenge you face as an owner, officer, director, employee, or former member of a business, Adams Leclair has the resources and expertise to help you overcome it.
