Results-Focused Huntsville Business Law Attorneys Aggressively Represent Small Business Owners Throughout North Alabama

We understand your business is your livelihood and treat it as such

When you’re a small business owner, you put your entire life into your company, so any legal action against that company is like a personal attack. This can be dangerous, because it puts you in an emotional state for what should be a strictly financial and strategic effort. The business law attorneys at Watson McKinney have been helping business owners for more than 45 combined years to respond to litigation and find the best resolution for their business.

Litigation can take a toll on small businesses and their owners

A lawsuit’s effect on a business doesn’t end when all the papers are filed. It’s effects can be felt for the life of that business in many different ways including:

  • Costing owners time and money. Filing or responding to a claim is a labor-intensive process that can affect company finances and demand owners attention for weeks or months

  • Causing emotional stress. The stakes and unknowns of a court case can put considerable strain on business owners affecting their lives and their work.

  • Changing how owners do business. Owners are almost always more wary after a legal claim is filed, and will put protective measures in place for the future, which can slow down operations and reduce profit margins.

  • Shutting a business down. If a business cannot afford to pay damages after a claim, or afford their legal costs, they may have to declare bankruptcy or even close down.

What are common small business claims?

It’s important to be aware of what kinds of claims may affect your business. Our lawyers have dealt with a wide variety of small business cases including:

  • Investment concerns or breach of fiduciary duty. If a stakeholder feels that a business owner is acting unethically with the finances they invested, they may file a claim to take back their money or affect the management of assets within the company.

  • Intellectual property. Companies often sue other companies regarding the improper use of one business’ intellectual property. Content creators may also bring legal action against a business for using their creations.

  • Insurance disputes. If an insurance company denies a claim or misrepresents the value of your business in a claim, you can file a claim to recover the amount of money you are owed.
