Business Litigation

Business Litigation

Experienced business trial lawyer litigates on behalf of your business

If you engage in business, you will eventually become involved in a dispute with a client, partner, supplier, insurance company or other third party that you need outside help to resolve. Mr. Kolber has been helping businesses resolve disputes for more than 30 years through civil court trials, arbitration, administrative hearings and alternative dispute resolution. He has the knowledge and experience to help your business in cases related to:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of warranty
  • Breach of guarantee
  • Business torts
  • Insurance
  • Professional liability (malpractice)
  • Real estate
  • Partnership disputes
  • Personal injury

Recovery for breach of contract

When a party to a contract fails to perform, they damage the other party. This damage often goes beyond the immediate harm of getting less than what the contract promised. The breach can also impact your profits if you are unable to serve your clients as a result. Mr. Kolber can help you achieve the best legal remedy for a breach of contract, such as:

  • Compensatory damages – Reimbursement for immediate monetary loss
  • Consequential and incidental damages – Compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach
  • Attorney’s fees and costs – Available if the contract expressly allows
  • Liquidated damages – Amounts specified in the contract for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance
  • Specific performance – A Court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract
  • Punitive damages – A penalty meant to punish the breaching party and to discourage other parties from acting in a similar manner
  • Rescission – Cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance, and the return of payments made under the contract
  • Reformation –  A court enacted change in the terms of the contract if the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding between the parties regarding what was to be performed

Affordable alternatives to a civil lawsuit

The cost of litigation can sometimes exceed the amount of the contract. Fortunately, there are various means of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration, that are less costly and quicker than civil lawsuits, but which can deliver the same remedies. Mr. Kolber has successfully represented clients in mediation and arbitration hearings, and also settled lawsuits before, during and after trial, saving his clients expense and getting their businesses back on track.
