Business litigation lawyers handle a wide variety of legal disputes that can arise in the course of running a business. They may represent businesses in court, or they may work with businesses to reach an out-of-court settlement. Businesses can be sued for breach of contract, fraud, or other claims.
Commercial litigation covers legal issues that affect a business or organization. For example, such disputes can include disagreements over corporate governance, employee rights and responsibilities, or consumer protection. Business litigation lawyers may also handle employment matters, such as disputes with employees over pay or benefits. They may also represent business owners in contractual disputes — like disagreements over insurance coverage or failed deals with other businesses — and can help small businesses address a variety of commercial problems.
A civil rights lawyer helps by protecting the rights of individuals who have been discriminated against. They also work to ensure that all people have equal access to opportunities and resources. In addition, they may help individuals file lawsuits if they feel their civil rights have been violated. The cases a civil rights lawyer may handle include employment discrimination, discrimination in housing or public accommodations, disability discrimination, sexual harassment and other types of gender-based violence. If you are experiencing these issues or would like more information about our practice areas, please contact us today.
You should bring any documents that are relevant to your case, including any correspondence you have had with the other party, any contracts or agreements, and any other documentation that may be helpful. It is also helpful to bring a list of questions for your lawyer. You should be prepared to discuss your case in detail and provide as much information as possible.
A disability web access lawyer helps make sure that websites are accessible to people with disabilities. This includes ensuring that the website can be used with screen readers and other assistive technologies, and that it complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation services, and telecommunications.
A discrimination litigation lawyer represents people who feel they have been treated unfairly because of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, or disability. If you have been subjected to harassment or unequal treatment at work, or if you have been denied housing or access to public accommodations because of your protected status, you may be a victim of discrimination. Contact an experienced discrimination litigation lawyer as soon as possible so that your legal rights can be enforced.
