In today’s business climate, the line between traditional “plaintiffs” and “defendants” is often blurred. Businesses and individuals alike understand that commercial disputes arise. Whether a dispute requires a company to enter litigation or a business is unwillingly forced to defend a lawsuit, Powers Taylor can help. We have represented individuals as well as local, regional, national, and international companies in the prosecution and defense of legal claims.
Our attorneys have successfully represented clients in complex business and financial disputes, such as partnership and closely-held corporation dissolutions, business receiverships, minority shareholder oppression litigation, and corporate fraud and breach of fiduciary duty cases. In seeking recovery from individual officers and directors, Powers Taylor has successfully pierced the corporate veil, unwinding complex, fraudulent business structures and joint enterprises. Our attorneys also have significant experience across many different industry sectors, including oil and gas, technology, manufacturing, telecommunications, and aerospace parts and services. Additionally, they are experienced in handling various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including SEC enforcement matters and investigations, arbitrations, and mediations.
Whether defending a business client in a breach of contract action or prosecuting a business fraud claim before a panel of arbitrators, our philosophy remains the same – to represent each client aggressively, provide value-added counsel, and assist each client in achieving its specific business objectives.
