Business conflicts come in a variety of flavors. The conflict may occur between a business and a client, vendor, or competitor. Sometimes conflict occurs among a business’ owners or between the buyer and seller of a business. Ideally, conflicts get resolved before they become legal disputes. But when they don’t, Lance Cawthon helps individuals and organizations protect their business interests when legal action becomes necessary.
Real estate litigation
Litigation over real estate may concern disputes over the sale of residential or commercial property, restrictive covenants, easements, earnest money, lease agreements, and landlord-tenant relations. Lance has helped clients protect their property interests in a variety of situations.
CONSUMER PROTECTION LITIGATION
Major consumer purchases, when they go wrong, can cause significant disruption to a household. When a family or individual spends thousands of dollars and ends up with a defective home or inoperable automobile, it has a major effect on daily life. Lance welcomes opportunities to help victims of consumer fraud and deceptive trade practices. These kinds of cases are often as much about confronting disrespectful treatment of a consumer as they are about recovering an economic loss.
GOVERNMENTAL AND CIVIL RIGHTS LITIGATION
Lawsuits are sometimes brought for the purpose of controlling governmental action or holding a governmental actor liable for damages. No matter the merit of the case, such lawsuits are subject to a unique set of doctrines and principles that require representation by lawyers who can prepare a strategy with these unique concerns in mind.
