Partnership and shareholder disputes

Conflicts between the owners of a business could lead to the end of a thriving operation. These situations are often marked by high emotions, so it is essential to retain an attorney who can provide calm insight and skillful advocacy. David represents partners and shareholders during internal disputes involving:

  • Management decisions
  • Buyout offers and buy-sell agreements
  • Owner and executive compensation
  • Alleged violation of company bylaws and partnership agreements
  • Service agreements
  • Succession and continuity planning
  • Dissolution

No matter what led to the particular dispute, David is a strong advocate for clients without losing sight of the effect the disagreement is having on the overall business.

Breach of contract cases

Hiring the right business lawyer could be the difference between success and failure in a breach of contract case. In these matters, David thoroughly analyzes the relevant agreement to provide sound counsel on threshold issues, such as whether a material violation occurred. Frequently, these disputes can be resolved promptly and efficiently through skillful negotiation, but if legal relief is warranted, David can represent you in a lawsuit seeking restitution, cancellation of the agreement or some other type of remedy.

Virginia employment litigation

Problems involving workers can hurt productivity and lead to legal liability. Fortunately, many employment law disputes can be averted by setting forth clear, effective policies preventing discrimination, misuse of trade secrets and other improper actions. Should a serious dispute arise, David can investigate what occurred and advocate for an appropriate resolution during administrative proceedings or in court. When a conflict over management practices, executive compensation, contract terms or something else threatens to get out of control, skillful legal representation is a must.

Intellectual property disputes

More than ever, companies face the risk of having their intellectual property misappropriated. If your patent, trademark or copyright has been infringed upon, David can outline your legal options and get to work immediately on obtaining legal relief. This includes cases where former or current employees take trade secrets, customer lists or other proprietary information in violation of their non-compete agreement.

Fairfax County breach of fiduciary duty claims

In business, certain individuals have responsibilities that require them to make decisions that serve the best interests of a client or organization rather than what might benefit the individual personally. This is referred to as a fiduciary duty. Breach of fiduciary duty claims are frequently associated with financial services litigation. For example, a client might allege that their adviser recommended investments primarily to boost the adviser’s commission or to benefit a venture in which the adviser had an interest. These claims also arise when corporate officers or employees are accused of self-dealing or taking excessive compensation.
