Experienced Business Litigation Attorneys Serving Milwaukee
We regularly represent clients in litigation, arbitration, and mediation in the following areas:
Assignments and Receiverships
Chapter 11 bankruptcy is one of the most common solutions for many businesses that struggle with financial issues and have little hope of recovery, but Chapter 128 is another option that many businesses can take. The attorneys at our firm can help you determine the best course of action for your business.
With the wide and ever-expanding use of media today, there’s no shortage of copyright infringement cases. When your intellectual property is used against your will or without your knowledge, you need attorneys who understand how these cases work. Our firm regularly works on copyright infringement cases and can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Environment Property & Law
The environmental issues that affect businesses and development are wide-ranging and present a variety of challenges. Having attorneys that can navigate environmental laws and regulations can help prevent governmental enforcement actions and tort lawsuits. Our attorneys at Kerkman & Dunn can help you and your business effectively deal with your environmental law issues.
Fraud is a common allegation in business disputes, especially in regards to standard contract actions that involve fraud in the misrepresentation of capability or intention to perform certain duties. Our lawyers are well versed in the area of fraud in business disputes and can help you find success with your case.
Fraudulent transfers can be particularly complicated because some of the parties involved may often have little knowledge of the legal implications of their activity. When these cases arise, having lawyers and attorneys that regularly deal with fraudulent transfers, like those at Kerkman & Dunn, can help you avoid financially and legally troubling situations.
Mergers & Acquisitions
Acquiring businesses as asset transfers or stock transfers can be incredibly exciting activity for companies, but ensuring that all the legal matters are sorted in these actions is imperative to successful mergers and acquisitions. Our firm regularly works with companies to make the processes of mergers and acquisitions smooth and successful.
The intricacies and details of noncompete clauses and agreements can vary greatly from state to state and are often dependent on the position that an employee held within a company. When dealing with noncompetition agreements, having attorneys like those at Kerkman & Dunn is absolutely vital to sorting out your case justly and fairly.
Preferences & Fraudulent Transfer
When your business is struggling and you see that insolvency and bankruptcy are imminent, you may not know what to do with the assets of your business. In these times, while you may be tempted to make ill-advised transfers to private parties, it is absolutely vital to have experienced attorneys on your side to guide you to legal safety.
Malpractice cases can arise for a variety of reasons, but all successful malpractice cases require proof that the professional defendant failed to comply with industry standards and regulations. Having the attorneys of Kerkman & Dunn on your side will give you the knowledge and experience to successfully navigate your professional malpractice case.
Small Business Planning
As a small business owner, the legal aspects of business may not come inherently to you, or you simply may not have the time to deal with legal issues as you focus on growth and development. At Kerkman & Dunn, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to guide your business when it comes to legal matters so you can focus on financial success.
In many business disputes, the issue of trade secrets often comes into play. If businesses can prove that competitors or former employees stole trade secrets from them, that can often result in punitive damages and payment of attorney fees. Having the right attorney who knows how to utilize this information in business disputes can prove incredibly valuable for companies.
Unfair competition claims are generally included in allegations that a trade secret was taken or that a non-compete covenant was violated. Our firm has experience in both defending clients and bringing cases against defendants in cases that involve unfair competition. Let Kerkman & Dunn help you with your unfair competition case.
