Business Litigation

If you are dealing with any type of business dispute or legal matter, it is imperative that you consult with a skilled attorney. Business litigation is often an expensive and drawn-out affair, which is why you should entrust your litigation matters to proven legal professionals, who can effectively advocate on your behalf both in and out of the courtroom.

Hardy, Parish, Yang, LLP has a team of skilled litigators who have handled multiple lawsuits, arbitrations and mediations across the U.S. HPY attorneys work hard to formulate effective legal strategies that keep your interests in mind. Above all, we put our client’s best interests front and center.

We try to help our clients avoid disputes and/or to solve disputes before a lawsuit is filed. We do this by working closely with the client, listening carefully to the client’s perspective, using the negotiating skills honed through decades of experience and working to develop creative and practical solutions to resolve issues early. But we also understand that sometimes formal litigation is necessary to resolve business disputes. In those instances, HPY is ready to fight for your rights in the courtroom or in arbitration.

Our attorneys work hard to formulate effective legal strategies that keep your interests in mind. We work to find efficient and effective ways to promote your interests.  Our attorneys are results oriented and our achievements are not measured in billable hours, but by our client’s successes.

We understand that business litigation can often be very expensive. That is one reason why, in appropriate circumstances, HPY offers contingent fee, fixed fee, and/or mixed contingent / hourly fee options. Unlike many large firms, HPY can be flexible on fees. We will explore with you the alternative fee arrangements that best fit your needs.

Like you, we at Hardy, Parish, Yang, LLP favor quick and effective resolutions. When it comes to business disputes, we have found that effective solutions can often be reached outside of litigation, and will always opt to save you time and money via mediation and other arrangements when possible. As trial lawyers, however, we are also more than willing to pursue a case through trial when needed.

  • Breach of contract disputes

  • Disputes involving non-compete clauses
