Lawsuits can have enormous effects on businesses, and whether you are initiating an action or responding to one, you will likely devote a considerable amount of both time and resources to that effort. With expert business litigators who know how to deliver results as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, the DeLuca Law Firm will provide the necessary legal services to protect your interests and let you get back to running your business.

Business-related disputes run the gamut, from seemingly simple to complex issues. Many suits can be settled through earnest negotiation, others are resolved by means of arbitration and mediation, and a small number proceed to trial before judges and juries in state and federal courts. We have vast experience in each of these forums, helping clients achieve the most favorable results.

We have obtained successful outcomes in business litigation involving: 

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Product liability and breach of warranty
  • Class actions
  • Fraud and misrepresentation claims
  • Business torts
  • Non-compete and non-solicitation agreements
  • Real estate and foreclosure actions
  • Shareholder, member, and partnership disputes
  • Minority shareholder oppression claims
  • Trade secret and unfair competition claims

We have brought and defended cases for individuals, start-ups, small businesses, privately-held companies, and some of the world’s largest corporations, and also have substantial experience acting as regional counsel for several major automobile and commercial truck manufacturers. Regardless of the client, we take the time to thoroughly investigate every aspect, determine the objective, and craft an appropriate strategy to achieve the desired outcome.

 

Product Liability & Breach of Warranty

For more than 30 years, we have capably represented manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers in product liability and breach of warranty litigation disputes including:

  • Breach of express or implied warranty claims
  • Design and manufacturing defects
  • False advertising and mislabeling
  • Failure to warn
  • Deceptive sales and financing practices
  • Indemnification claims

This area of the law is complicated, varying between state and federal statutes and regulations. Because of our deep understanding of the automotive industry and the legal issues its participants regularly face, we counsel our clients to avoid common mistakes and provide them with the strategic advice that helps prevent litigation and manage risk. We not only know the law but also have the advocacy skills necessary for high-stakes courtroom litigation.
