Business Disputes

Business disputes take many forms. A dispute typically involves business professionals, business enterprises, and business operations. It may involve contracts and/or it may involve duties that arise by statute or by operation of law. Business litigation often requires knowledge of accounting and finance for the reason that substantive claims are often predicated upon matters that involve accounting or finance, and the computation of damages frequently involves accounting principles.
