Commercial Litigation

The Law Offices of Timothy D. Ducar, PLC is where you should turn to when you have exhausted all avenues for solving your business disputes amicably. We understand that by the time that you resort to looking for an attorney, that you have had enough. You are either owed money that should have been paid weeks or months prior, or you have been served with a lawsuit you believe is lacking merit. Either way, you need immediate, effective legal assistance. When clients retain the firm to initiate legal action, we typically file a Complaint in court within two business days. We then actively move the lawsuit through the court process as quickly as possible. If defending, we make certain that our clients are protected at all times.

Examples of business disputes that the firm undertakes include:

•Breach of Contract: The term breach of contract is very broad, and includes any time a company or a person enters into an agreement to do something and that company or party does not live up to that agreement. Sometimes, there may be a good reason for this, and sometimes, there may not be. At the Law Offices of Timothy D. Ducar, PLC, we handle all types of contract disputes, applying the facts of our clients’ particular situation to the law that applies, and then providing our clients clear advice on their rights. If litigation is necessary, we will initiate or defend our clients aggressively.

•Employment Agreements: At the Law Offices of Timothy D. Ducar, PLC, we analyze and litigate employment agreements. Often, these employment agreements will include Non-Compete clauses.
