San Jose Business Litigation Attorney

A solid contract, backed by due diligence, is the foundation of a successful business relationship. Whether it’s between a company and its shareholders, its employees, or other third-party entities, a well-negotiated contract can protect a company’s interests and bottom line. It’s also an excellent defense against costly disputes and legal action.

Unfortunately, on occasion disputes and threats of litigation still happen, causing friction between business partners or operations to grind to a halt. If you find yourself in this predicament, your best defense is a good lawyer who knows the ins and outs of business law. The San Jose business litigation attorneys at the Law Office of Ruben P. Ruiz PC provides aggressive advocacy in high-stakes litigation, as well as effective alternative dispute resolution, to achieve one goal: Protect and advance our clients’ interests.

Business Litigation

Litigation comes with real risks that may threaten the future of a company. This is why we take a highly collaborative approach to resolve our clients’ business disputes. We go beyond the legal issues to fully understand a client’s business, the challenges they’re facing, and the industry they’re in. This allows us to craft a plaintiff or defense litigation strategy that’s aligned with their business interests. Our legal acumen and courtroom dexterity, honed by years of experience, enable us to guide our clients at every stage of business litigation, from the evaluation of claims to settlement and verdict.

The Law Offices of Ruben P. Ruiz PC have safeguarded the interests of small and mi-size businesses in these areas:

  • Contract disputes
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Misappropriation of funds
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Real estate disputes
  • Lender liability and depositor disputes (Banking)
  • Promissory Note disputes
  • Commercial collection of unpaid contracts
  • Unfair competition (§17200 and §7500 claims)

Business Mediation and Arbitration

While we don’t hesitate to take cases to trial and even through to the appellate process, we know that litigation can be a costly affair, both in terms of time and money. Whenever it works in favor of our clients, our attorneys resolve business disputes out of court in order to manage costs and avoid the stress of a lawsuit.

Our San Jose lawyers are highly trained in alternative dispute resolutions, particularly in mediation and arbitration, to reach an agreement favorable to our clients, one that advances their business interests and preserves their bottom line.

Based in San Jose, California, the lawyers at the Law Office of Ruben P. Ruiz PC understand the business culture that drives Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. Contact us today for more information about our business litigation and ADR services or to schedule a consultation.
