Contracts and Commercial Litigation
The story of every case has the same three bedrock elements: a duty, a breach, and damages. For many business relationships and commercial transactions, the duties are created by contract. Thus, protecting our clients’ contractual rights is at the core of what we do. We have successfully represented clients ranging from start-ups to the Fortune 500, including high-tech and e-commerce companies, financial institutions, manufacturers, retailers, service providers, and entrepreneurs.
Our experience extends to disputes arising from all manner of agreements, including supply and distribution agreements, intellectual property and licensing contracts, purchase and sale agreements, financing and investment arrangements, service contracts, contracts for the sale of goods, co-branding and promotional agreements, and joint ventures. Often these cases involve claims for fraud, misrepresentation, tortious interference with a business relationship, unjust enrichment, or violation of state or federal statutes regulating business practices, such as the Consumer Protection Act, the Lanham Act, the Uniform Fraudulent Transfers Act, the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, or the Washington Securities Act. We’ve handled them all—skillfully and successfully.
