Business and Commercial Litigation
Our commercial litigators have prosecuted and defended Uniform Commercial Code, breach of contract, business tort and statutory claims for our commercial and business clients. Our attorneys represent members of limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, general partnerships and other business organizations in lawsuits for dissolution, disassociation and derivative relief. McCandlish lawyers have represented business clients in virtually every type of business tort and contract claim. A typical, though by no means exhaustive, survey of such claims include: fraud, defamation, business conspiracy, tortious interference with contract, negligence, tortious interference with prospective economic advantage, and unfair competition.
Corporate, Shareholder and Investor Disputes
McCandlish lawyers have broad experience representing companies, officers, directors, and individual investors in many types of member, owner, and shareholder disputes, including derivative and fiduciary duty litigation, and minority shareholder litigation. Our attorneys have prosecuted and defended claims that a director or officer has breached his or her fiduciary duties, engaged in self-dealing, or misappropriated corporate opportunities. McCandlish lawyers also have substantial experience representing minority shareholders to ensure that majority owners do not oppress or deprive the minority owners of the fair profits to which they are entitled.
Securities Industry Arbitrations
McCandlish lawyers have represented broker dealers, associated persons and public customers in proceedings before self-regulatory bodies in the financial services industry. Such matters involve securities law issues under the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act, FINRA (previously NASD, NASDR) rules governing “unsuitability”, “know your customer”, “customer first”, “churning,” “duty to supervise”, “duty to disclose”, recordkeeping requirements, and fair and equitable principles of trade, among others.
