Common Grounds for Commercial Litigation in Bentonville, AR

A commercial dispute can encompass a wide range of issues, from real estate disputes to breach of contract claims. Our firm understands that commercial litigation can be a lengthy and tedious process, and we are here to help manage your commercial suit. The following is a list of common commercial disputes our firm has frequently handled for clients in Bentonville and across Arkansas.

Real Estate Commercial Litigation in Bentonville, AR

Commercial landlords and tenants can enter a dispute for a number of reasons. For example, if a tenant decides to sublease the property without consent from the landlord, this may cause a disagreement about which parties are responsible for the payment of rent and other liabilities. However, commercial real estate disputes are not just limited to this topic. The following are some real estate disputes that could lead to commercial litigation:

  • Renovating a property without permission
  • Liability for natural disasters
  • Defaults on lease payments

This is not a comprehensive list. We welcome the chance to represent you in your real estate litigation claim.

Commercial Litigation for Contract Disputes in Bentonville, AR

Contracts are the lifeblood of a successful company. To operate efficiently, a company must build relationships and maintain contracts with other companies in their field. The breach of a contract can not only harm that relationship, but it can also cost a company a severe loss of revenue. That is why it is necessary for breach of contract claims to be resolved quickly so the non-breaching party could receive the compensation they deserve.

A breach of contract may arise from all types of transactions. For example, if you made a contract to hire a keynote speaker for a company event, you will lose money and have your event ruined if the speaker fails to arrive. A breach of contract may also occur under the following circumstances:

  • Failure to deliver contracted for product
  • Delivering an incorrect or incomplete shipment of a product
  • Performing an inadequate service

While it is possible for an oral contract to be enforced under certain circumstances, it would be best to always have a contract in writing and signed by all parties to the contract. The inability to produce a written contract could severely harm your case. In some cases, the law requires a written contract to enforce certain agreements like the sale of real estate. This law is referred to as the Statute of Frauds.

Contract disputes may also arise if parties to a contract cannot agree on the validity of the contract. For example, if all parties named in the agreement failed to sign the contract, this could call into question the enforceability of the contract.

Intellectual Property Infringement Lawsuits

Intellectual property refers to copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and other forms of original works that a creator may wish to protect. It is vital to understand your intellectual property rights to ensure that these rights are not being infringed by another person or entity. For example, if you have patented an invention, you will want to prevent others from using your invention without first leasing the rights to recreate it.

There are many protections that are provided for owners of intellectual property. For example, if you create an original work, it will automatically be granted some legal protections. It is important to note that greater legal protections for intellectual property are provided upon registering the intellectual property with the appropriate agency. For instance, a trademark should be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

The remedies for intellectual property infringement can vary depending on the circumstances. For example, a plaintiff could be provided with legal fees and other court costs in some cases. Additionally, if a plaintiff shows that a defendant infringed on their intellectual property, they may receive various types of damages.

Employment Disputes in Bentonville, AR

To prevent legal disputes with employees, many companies will use contracts to limit the actions of an employee. For example, an employment contract may contain a term that allows the employer to claim intellectual property created by an employee with equipment owned by the employer.

Employment disputes may also arise from non-compete agreements and non-disclosure agreements.

Gunn Kieklak Dennis, LLP offers legal representation for many other types of commercial disputes that are not discussed above.
