We offer representation for an array of business issues and disputes, including, but not limited to:
- Breach of contract:These types of legal issues arise when someone enters a contract but fails to fulfill their obligations.
- Breach of fiduciary duties: Fiduciaries are required to act in the best interests of the company. When their actions are self-serving, they may be accused of breaching their fiduciary duties.
- Fraud/misrepresentation: A person may be accused of fraud or misrepresentation when they knowingly make false statements or omit material facts to deceive a person or entity and cause a loss to the injured party and a gain for themselves or others.
- Interference with contractual relationship: These cases arise when someone knows a contract exists between two or more entities and they intentionally act in a way that damages that relationship and causes injury to any of the parties involved.
- Interference with a prospective contractual relationship: A person may be said to have interfered with a prospective contractual relationship if they knew that two or more parties were going to do business together where there was an expected advantage or benefit and they damaged the relationship.
- Negligent misrepresentation: Negligent misrepresentation cases arise when someone does not exercise due care when providing information they believe is true, and the statements they make persuade another person to enter into a contract.
- Quantum Meruit/Unjust Enrichment: These cases involve one party not receiving just compensation for services provided to another party, and they seek damages for a reasonable amount.
- South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act: The act concerns unfair or deceptive conduct that adversely impacts public interest.
- Corporate waste: Good business judgment is called into question when there is a significant imbalance in the exchange of assets and the consideration given the transaction.
