Business & Commercial Litigation
In the world of commerce, disputes arise everyday. Many of these are the result of misunderstandings, miscommunications, or honest disagreements over the terms of a deal. Not surprisingly, most disputes can be resolved with better communication or arms-length negotiations. A handful of disputes, however, require more formal legal intervention to resolve. For those matters, Schwed Kahle & Kress, P.A. provides strong, effective representation in business and commercial litigation, including mediation, arbitration and trials to protect clients’ valuable interests and help them achieve their goals.
Allegations of Fraud and Unfair Business Practices
The Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUPTA) prohibits a broad range of prohibited activities in the conduct of business. FDUPTA is aimed not only at protecting consumers from false or deceptive advertising and dishonest sales tactics, but also to protect legitimate businesses operating above-board from unfair competition due to the acts of competing businesses which may be less than honest. Schwed Kahle & Kress handles litigation between businesses involving allegations of fraud, commercial disparagement and business defamation, tortious interference with business relations and other business torts.
Intellectual Property Litigation
Every business has valuable intellectual property assets to protect, whether the owners know it or not. For some companies, their intellectual property portfolio is their most valuable asset, and litigation may be critical to defend against claims of infringement or prosecute others for infringing on a company’s valuable intellectual property. Schwed Kahle & Kress handle patent, trademark and copyright infringement claims, as well as other IP matters such as the protection, theft or misappropriation of trade secrets.
Breach of Contract Disputes
A contract of some sort can be found at the base of every business transaction. Not all contracts have to be in writing to be valid, and some do not have to be expressly stated to come into being. Whether written, oral, express or implied, each type of contract presents unique and difficult issues to resolve when the terms or subject matter of the contract are in dispute. With over 100 years of combined experience handling business and commercial disputes, the attorneys at Schwed Kahle & Kress understand how to read and interpret the most complicated documents and develop arguments supporting claims and defenses in Florida breach of contract litigation.
