Handling Business And Commercial Litigation, And Transactional Law

If you are starting or running a business, you do not need a law degree to be successful, but you will need access to skilled, effective business attorneys. Legal requirements and challenges play a part in the entire life cycle of your business — from its formation to its sale or transfer.

The namesake attorney for The Law Offices of Susan Schleck Kleiner, LLC, has more than 23 years of experience in commercial and business law. Our firm provides "big law firm" experience with the accessibility and responsiveness of a smaller firm.

How Our Firm Approaches Business And Commercial Law Matters

Our lawyers work with businesses of every size and description — from health professionals and construction/real estate companies to dog walkers. We especially enjoy helping women and minority entrepreneurs get off to a good start. We help prospective entrepreneurs with business formation by helping them select the legal structure that is right for them. We can also advise on transactions such as the legal aspects of payroll, and we can help employers set up strong human resource policies that can minimize the chance of employment litigation. We can also review contracts of all kinds, including partnership agreements and royalty agreements.

When our clients encounter a legal dispute, we investigate their conflict to understand their side of the story. Many commercial litigation conflicts are settled out of court, but we always prepare for trial. Some of the litigation case types we have successfully resolved for our clients include:

  • Environmental litigation
  • Breach of contract matters
  • Construction liens
  • Debt collection
  • Real estate disputes

Not every case has to go to trial — our firm can provide positive results that are also cost-effective.

Business Litigation Success Stories

Case #1. Our firm successfully sued an associate who had left a chiropractic practice. The court ruled that they had violated the noncompete agreement they had signed with the firm.

Case #2. We successfully resolved a case between our client, a construction subcontractor, and a general contractor who had stopped paying his subs.
