McIntyre Stein has substantial experience in handling business disputes. Although many of these disputes are best resolved outside of the courtroom, we recognize that sometimes litigation is the only option. Our attorneys have represented officers, directors and shareholders in all types of business disputes ranging from claims of breach of fiduciary duty to minority shareholder oppression. At McIntyre Stein, we understand that these disputes arise not only in large corporations, but also in small and family-owned businesses. Our considerable experience allows us to resolve even the most complex matters in a cost effective manner.
We have represented owners, contractors, subcontractors and third-parties in a variety of disputes, including defending mechanic’s lien cases, litigating payment bond claims, and handling all types of matters involving breach of contract, delay claims and construction site accidents. These cases are typically multi-million dollar proceedings involving sureties, prime and subcontractors, architects and engineers, unpaid materialmen and suppliers, and the usual cast of construction industry participants.
At McIntyre Stein, we have a breadth of experience in litigating everything from simple contracts to complex commercial agreements. Our attorneys understand that business transactions take a variety of forms, and that the disputes arising from these transactions can be just as varied. They have represented clients in many sectors, including manufacturing, sales, shipping, retail and commercial development, and agriculture. In each case, we work with our clients to understand their business and industry in order to achieve the best possible result.
Landlord/Tenant and Real Property Disputes
We have represented commercial landlords, national property management companies and tenants in lease disputes arising in a variety of contexts. Many of these cases involve enforcing a landlord’s rights upon default, including regaining possession of the premises, recovering past due rent and other damages. In addition, we have represented both landlords and tenants in negotiating lease termination agreements, litigating CAM disputes, and resolving disputes over past due and future rent.
Because of our real estate litigation background, we have also represented numerous landowners in condemnation/eminent domain proceedings, and have handled a variety of complex suits to quiet title, partition property, prove title by adverse possession, validate contested easements and right-of-ways, and to establish disputed boundary claims.
