Experienced, Affordable Guidance For Small Businesses Facing Litigation

In any business, legal disputes are bound to arise at one time or another. What matters is how you deal with those disputes. The right strategy can make the difference between devastating losses and decisive victories.

At Haven Law, I understand the challenges small businesses face, especially when it comes to legal disputes. I've worked with small businesses and their owners for more than 20 years. During that time, I've handled virtually every type of business-related litigation, including:

  • Breach of contract and other contract disputes
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Partnership disputes
  • Dissolution disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Disputes with vendors and suppliers
  • Disputes with employees
  • Unfair business practices
  • Commercial collections (plaintiff or defense)

No matter what type of legal problem you're facing, here, you'll find skilled and strategic advocacy. You can also benefit from reasonable rates — without sacrificing quality. My background as a litigator gives me a leg up in preparing cases for successful resolution, and my practice as a solo attorney gives me the advantage of more efficient, cost-effective legal services.

As your lawyer and advocate, Peter T. Haven will give you undivided attention and unwavering dedication to protecting your business interests.

Understanding What Factors Into Many Business Disputes

At the root of almost every business dispute is a contract of some sort. Whether an employment agreement, contract for goods or services, partnership agreement or operating agreement, any type of contract can give rise to litigation.

I'm familiar with the many types of contracts that define business relationships. I'm also well-versed in the contract provisions that often give rise to disputes, such as:

  • Liquidated damages clauses
  • Arbitration agreements
  • Bonus or commission agreements
  • Noncompete agreements
  • Confidentiality clauses
