An Attorney For Your Business Disputes

For small to medium-sized companies, business matters cannot be separated from personal issues. Whether disputes involve a competitor, partner or shareholder, the livelihood of business owners may be on the line. Simply stated, they take their business personally.

I am Massachusetts business lawyer Matthew Iler. At my law firm, I take on complex disputes, bringing in-depth knowledge and understanding of business law. Attending to every detail is paramount for me. Investing the time to identify the specific facts that led to legal action is equally important.

Finding Proactive Solutions

When I first meet with my clients, I identify the specific issues that brought them to my office. I spend time with them to identify their specific goals, balancing them against the strength of their cases. Business disputes and litigation can arise from disagreements between two interacting companies or internally with partners and shareholders, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Corporate fraud claims
  • Unfair and deceptive trade practices
  • Judgment enforcement
  • Debt collection
  • Consumer protection
  • Post-judgment/appeals

Settlement Versus Litigation

After spending time with you to identify your needs and goals, I remain at your side throughout the entire process. You may feel determined to go to trial to get the “justice” you deserve. Some legal problems can become challenging to resolve without a trial, especially if one side expresses concerns over their business interests. For example, litigation is more likely when a partner or shareholder feels defrauded. If litigation is required, my list of representative cases should reassure you regarding my extensive experience in court.

However, resolving matters outside of court can save both time and money. I am skilled at exploring alternative strategies to resolving your business dispute. In many cases, the first step is to send a demand letter detailing the facts of the case and the laws that apply. Whether the response leads us toward negotiating unresolved issues or going to trial, I will discuss the pros and cons of either option.
