Commercial litigation is not the preferred way to resolve a business dispute, but it can be the only recourse to assert a legal right, or defend against a wrongful claim. When litigation becomes necessary, the attorneys of Davidson Backman Medeiros have the experience, skill, and knowledge necessary to go the distance, whether in the state courts, the bankruptcy courts, or the federal district courts.
State Court Litigation And Appeals
We practice extensively in the courts of general jurisdiction in Washington and Idaho, representing clients in a variety of commercial disputes, including litigation regarding:
- Breach of contract;
- Misappropriation of trade secrets;
- Misrepresentation or fraud;
- Employment disputes;
- Breach of non-solicitation and non-competition agreements;
- Actions for physician credentialing or discipline;
- Residential construction disputes;
- Consumer Protection Act claims; and
- Intellectual property disputes.
Trial court decisions are frequently followed by requests for discretionary review or notices of appeal to the Court of Appeals. We have deep experience in appellate practice. Aaron Goforth has represented clients in over twenty appeals to the Court of Appeals and six appeals to the state Supreme Court.
- The appointment of the receiver;
- The litigation of claims for fraud or self dealing;
- The determination of claims against the estate; and
- The recovery of fraudulent transfers.
We have experience in prosecuting each of these claims, and others.
Bankruptcy Court Litigation
The increase in size and complexity of business bankruptcy cases, especially under Chapter 11, has required bankruptcy attorneys to become proficient in the litigation of contested matters and adversary proceedings.
Frequent litigation matters include motions for relief from stay and abandonment. Other litigation claims include lawsuits for the avoidance of pre-petition transfers, such as preference actions or actions for the recovery of fraudulent transfers.
The administration of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case will normally require: claims litigation; the determination of numerous matters that arise during the course of administration; and the adjudication of facts and legal issues that pertain to confirmation of a plan of reorganization.
We are experienced in litigating all of these issues, having brought hundreds of avoidance actions; hundreds of claims objections; and having gained confirmation of numerous Chapter 11 plans of reorganization over the past thirty years.
We represent individuals and businesses in all aspects of commercial litigation. Call (509) 624-4600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information regarding possible representation.
