Business Litigation

Business Litigation Attorneys

Doing business in California often means having a high potential of getting involved in various types of legal disputes. Business disputes include not only business-to-business and individual-to-business (external) disputes, but also internal disputes among partners, shareholders, or other parties within a company. When not handled properly and in a timely manner, these disputes can become extremely costly and destructive.

We have successfully represented clients in a broad spectrum of business and corporate matters. We are experienced in the courtroom as well as with other forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) that might be appropriate, such as mediation and arbitration. Our attorneys handle external and internal business disputes including the following:

  • Partnership or Owner Disputes
  • Unfair Business Practices
  • Copyright and Trademark Infringement
  • Business Fraud / Embezzlement
  • Judicial Dissolution of Business Entities
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Misappropriation of Assets
  • Collection Actions
  • Breach of Contract
  • Breach of Warranty
  • Intentional or Negligent Interference with Contractual Relationships or Prospective Business Advantage

Shawn and Vilma are wonderful. They listened to what I needed help with (an issue with my HOA) and offered more than one suggestion while still expressing their recommendation. And to boot, they were mindful of time spent to maximize use of my retainer. I will go to then again for any real estate needs in the future. Thank you for everything!

My research located Real Estate Law Corporation (RELC) to assist with a landlord/tenant issue. I was pleasantly surprised that I was promptly put in touch with individuals who showed genuine interest in listening, and then developing a strategy designed to best achieve a positive and legally sufficient outcome. My legal issue was successfully resolved to my satisfaction. Resolution was achieved with the support of sound legal counsel and support throughout the process. Thank you, Shawn, Velma, and the entire RELC legal team. My very best wishes to you all. Bill C from Lincoln, CA

I put a downpayment on business which was supposed to be refundable but after the transaction didn’t go through we were not given our money back. I reached out to the business and they kept on scaring me with some cheap tactics and legal terms. I don’t really understand much of the hidden mambo jambo and the loopholes in contracts and took those business people for their word. . Fast forward we were having a hard time getting our money back from them and kept on getting the runaround. It can get frustrating when people are not honest or don’t hold their end of the deal. Shawn Dhillon came recommended from a trusted source so I reached out to him. I reached out to him and initially we communicated via email and then we started talking on the phone. I was very happy that Shawn himself would reach out to give us updates. Long Story short 3 weeks in I got my money back. I can’t speak for others but my experience has been nothing short of amazing. I am glad I didn’t get the run-a-round or had to jump loops. He was very professional and knew what he was doing. I would highly recommend him and his company to anyone looking for legal advice.

We tried for a while to hire a real estate lawyer multiple times. It was very very frustrating. All the other people we tried to do business with were very rude, condescending and flaky. They wouldn’t answer their phone they wouldn’t call you back. It was like they were doing you a favor for you to give them a bunch of money. We almost gave up but then we found Shawn. This company was very professional and classy. This is the way professional business people used to be 20 or 30 years ago. Now not so much. Shawn helped us with all of our needs in a clear and precise manner he was very professional. Also his prices are very reasonable and he gives you a full accounting of how your money is being spent. So if you’re having the same trouble we did don’t give up just call Shawn.
