Business Litigation

Solutions For A Wide Range Of Disputes

Business is a driver of our daily lives. When legal issues disrupt that, it’s a problem, to put it simply. Finch Tetzlaff LLP has represented individuals and companies, employers and employees, officers and directors, buyers and sellers, principals and agents, and contractors and subcontractors in myriad business matters.

We provide trusted legal counsel in a wide range of business law concerns for a broad variety of clients. Legal issues that our clients seek our experienced and knowledgeable representation for include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Unfair, unlawful and fraudulent business practices
  • False advertising
  • Injunctive relief
  • Noncompete contract disputes
  • Partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Construction disputes
  • Trade secret misappropriation
  • Trademark disputes
  • Business formation and dissolution disputes

Real-World Experience

Our attorneys have represented clients in a variety of forums, ranging from mediation and arbitrations to both federal and state court trials throughout California and the Western United States. We also have successfully handled appeals before the California Court of Appeal and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

We aim to resolve legal disputes through settlement negotiations, as that allows our clients to focus on their day-to-day business strategies and avoid time-consuming litigation. However, we understand that some business disputes cannot be resolved amicably. We always prepare each case as if it will go to trial and stand ready to litigate if necessary. This allows us to negotiate for an out-of-court settlement from a position of strength.
