Contract Litigation and Arbitration

Often times, a contract binding certain parties to certain obligations is breached, resulting in damages to the non-breaching party. BLG has experience in litigating these matters and will fight for your rights and recovery to any monies due as a result of the contract’s breach.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Many companies make the decision to either acquire or merge with other companies to consolidate synergies and improve the financial viability of each company. BLG has assisted in drafting transactional documents for such business deals well in excess of $50,000,000 in total.

Shareholder Relations

Both public and non-publicly traded companies often have internal disputes amongst their respective owners. BLG has extensive experience in successfully resolving these disputes either through settlement or litigation.

Areas of Practice

Commercial Collections

In order for a business to succeed, it must collect the funds for services or products that it sells. When customers become delinquent and refuse to pay, BLG uses its experience in collections to either obtain the outstanding debt through settlement or through litigation.

Employment Law

Unfortunately, often times issues arise in the workplace with a company’s employees that require legal intervention to protect the company. BLG assists its clients in dealing with such matters to minimize any exposure to the Company from the accusations or other misdeeds of any employee while carefully maneuvering and solving the problem without running afoul of any applicable employment law.

General Litigation

Sometimes, clients have general legal matters that do not fall into any specific category. From a dispute over the ownership of a piece of property to dispossessory claims involving disputes between a landlord and a tenant, BLG can assist its clients in a variety of general claims that arise between its clients and other parties.

Complex Litigaiton

Cases are not always as straight forward between parties regarding a single straight forward claim. BLG has significant experience in complex litigation in which the litigation involves multiple parties, large amounts of money, the potential for a lengthy trial or the existence of complex legal issues.

Appellate Law

Unfortunately, BLG’s clients are not always successful at trial or during the course of their case. Often times, this result is a attributable to an error made by the trial court that is inconsistent with the law. In those circumstances, an appeal to the appellate court in the proper jurisdiction is the only way to reverse the decision by the trial court. BLG has conducted extensive appellate work and has successfully reversed trial courts for making decisions inconsistent with the law.

Tort Law

A tort, in common law jurisdictions, is a civil wrong that causes someone else to suffer loss or harm resulting in legal liability for the person who commits the tortious act. Examples would include an assault or any other action taken by a tortfeasor that causes a person or entity to be harmed or suffer damages. These claims are in contrast to causes of action arising from contractual law, and BLG has successfully prosecuted and defended tort cases on behalf of its clients.
