Business Disputes

Corporate Conflict

Business and commercial litigation refers to litigating and negotiating the resolution of any legal disputes arising in the corporate and commercial context. We have experience handling a wide variety of disputes in this context, including shareholder and corporate governance disputes, contract disputes, derivative lawsuits, class actions, claims alleging violations of the South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act or the South Carolina Trade Secrets Act, and claims alleging civil conspiracy or breach of fiduciary duty against officers and directors. We understand how disruptive a conflict can be to a company’s owners, employees, shareholders, and customers.

When you hire Duffy & Young, you are choosing a partner who will learn the relevant aspects of your business and work efficiently and intelligently to reach a favorable outcome of the dispute, whether through litigation, negotiation, or a combination of the two. Whether you are dealing with high-stakes, “Bet-the-Company” litigation or litigation where the stakes are somewhat lower, Duffy & Young can advise you on your alternatives and the costs and benefits of those alternatives. If litigation is the best course, Duffy & Young’s team of lawyers has experience litigating and trying cases in both federal and state courts and handling any appeals that follow the trial.
