Corporate and Commercial Litigation

Our trial lawyers handle all types of business litigation, with significant experience representing entities in real estate brokerage, development and construction:

  • Breach of contract (customers or suppliers)
  • Transaction disputes
  • Construction contract disputes
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Corporate and partnership dissolution
  • Land use and eminent domain
  • Installment land contracts
  • Other commercial real estate litigation

We have handled large and complex litigation involving property development and real estate ownership, but we welcome all small businesses in need of quality, cost-effective representation.

Business Transactions

Contract language is crucial to completing the deal and protecting yourself after the transaction. Our attorneys negotiate, draft and review buy-sell agreements, mergers and acquisitions, contracts for goods and services, commercial leases and sale or purchase of assets. Business dissolution can also be handled as a straightforward transaction. In any of these scenarios, you will want every detail evaluated by a sharp-eyed lawyer who knows the potential pitfalls.

Employment Policies, Pre-Litigation and Damage Control

Some disputes cannot be foreseen, but many arise for lack of proper planning. We help companies evaluate their liability exposure and develop and implement policies to prevent problems. Caldwell & Kearns drafts policy manuals and advises on specific matters such as FMLA (family/medical leave) or how to fire a troublesome employee. We can negotiate or evaluate employee agreements (confidentiality provisions, non-compete clauses, compensation and severance). We also represent clients before the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission to resolve conflicts without formal litigation, such as claims of discrimination or harassment.

In any situation, Caldwell & Kearns looks for solutions as alternatives to full scale business litigation. But our attorneys always prepare your case so that it can be presented to a judge, jury or administrative body. Contact us today for seasoned counsel and formidable representation
