Comprehensive Business Dispute Representation

Our firm is attentive to the needs and objectives of each client. We provide litigation representation in areas including the following:

  • Contract-related disputes: We represent businesses in a variety of disputes related to contract breach or unfulfilled expectations. Whether your dispute stems from a property dispute (including landlord/tenant disputes), an employee-related contract, such as a non-compete agreement, a problem in the distribution or sale of services, or a conflict related to debt collection, working with an experienced business lawyer is crucial for safeguarding your interests and asserting your rights.
  • Internal disputes between shareholders and partners: Within any business, divergent visions on how the business should operate or grow can lead to problems. Trust among business partners is essential to success. When you discover that your business partner is not deserving of that trust, you need attorneys who focus on resolving business disputes. Most fights are over one of three things: ownership, money, or control. Whatever the source of the conflict, we help you turn anger into action.  Our business dispute attorneys work with business owners locked in a struggle with their partners. We help them figure out a way to work together…or not. Each business relationship is unique. Our job is to help you find the best solutions for your individual situation.  Attorney Koehler effectively handles disputes between business partners or shareholders in areas including profit-sharing disputes, alleged fiduciary duty breaches, and business divorces.
  • External disputes involving other businesses or individuals: Koehler & Associates strives to resolve disputes that arise between two or more businesses, and those that arise between your business and individuals. We have extensive experience in handling disputes relating to vendors and suppliers, distribution, and marketing, including conflicts involving after-market sales, counterfeit goods, or misrepresenting the nature of goods being sold.
  • Disputes that arise during the sale of a business: We help clients resolve problems that arise during the sale of a business. This can include terms of the sale, financing problems, delays, receipt of payment or other breaches of contract. Our focus is to help our clients reach the prompt and favorable resolution of the business purchase dispute.
