Commercial Litigation

Commercial Litigation deals with disputes that go to the heart of a company's business strategy and business implementation. Commercial Litigation disputes are about issues that are directly related to how a company operates.

If someone slips on your stairs and sues, that isn't core to your business but if someone is copying your copyrighted material, that is.

Examples of commercial litigation include but are not limited to:

  • Business torts
  • ​Contract disputes
  • Fiduciary litigation
  • Insurance coverage disputes
  • RICO
  • Shareholder disputes and derivative actions
  • Employment disputes
  • Trials and appeals in all commercial and business fields

At The Shingler Law Firm, we work with you on a budget to help manage and anticipate litigation costs to achieve optimal results and maximize efficiencies for each client.

Business Disputes

For whatever stage your business is in,  The Shingler Law Firm is ready to provide sound advice and creative solutions to any business disputes; while working to protect your business and intellectual property assets. We always start by seeing if negotiation or mediation can provide a satisfactory and economical solution.

If it becomes necessary to litigate, our trial experience in state and federal court makes us well-equipped to pursue a cost-effective resolution in matters ranging from shareholder disputes to complex fraud claims.

We work closely with you to determine and pursue the most effective strategies, such as partnering with ESI specialists and other vendors to keep discovery costs as low as reasonably possible.

Government  Liability

​The Shingler Law Firm provides experienced counsel in governmental liability matters, including:

  • civil rights/section 1983 claims,

  • land use disputes and

  • general negligence and personal injury actions. 

We have represented counties, municipalities, and state officers, as well as boards, commissions and employees in administrative proceedings and at trial. Our goal is to assist government clients in preventing and solving legal problems in an effective and efficient manner. We work closely with our clients to investigate and aggressively defend claims asserted against government entities.

Professional Liability

The Shingler Law Firm has handled professional liability cases for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and for clients throughout Georgia, often in cases arising out of complex business transactions or complex litigation. Because we have represented entities pursuing professional malpractice claims as well as professionals defending against such claims, we recognize that reputations and business credibility are of principal concern and strives to handle these cases efficiently and discreetly while advocating for our clients' interests.

The Shingler Law Firm has also represented professionals before licensing boards and in grievance proceedings. We are committed to helping clients achieve favorable results in a cost-effective manner.

Insurance  Coverage

The Shingler Law Firm provides insured entities with coverage analysis and advice and has negotiated and litigated complex claims under fidelity bonds, commercial general liability policies, director and officer policies, and property policies. As an experienced litigator, we understand the methods used by insurance companies to avoid payment of claims and are familiar with how insurers interpret their policies.

If a coverage dispute cannot be resolved without litigation, our trial experience makes us well-prepared to fight for a favorable coverage determination in Georgia’s state and federal courts. Our experience includes insurance coverage for director and officer liability, employee dishonesty, bond claims, workplace injuries, and commercial property losses.
