Conflicts between companies or a company and its shareholders occur regularly. Not all attorneys have experience handling all the considerations that go along with a suit between two business entities. To handle a dispute between two business entities, attorneys need to be aware of complex legal issues regarding attorney-client privilege in a corporate setting, regulations governing certain actions businesses may wish to take, and how to deal with important witnesses who are former employees.
The attorneys at Sherrets Bruno & Vogt, LLC, regularly represent businesses in disputes with other businesses. Situations giving rise to commercial litigation include:
- Shareholder suits
- Consumer fraud and consumer protection
- Unfair Competition
- Trade Secrets
- Interference with Business Relations
- Insurance Coverage

Successes in commercial litigation include recovering approximately $20 million in delayed compensation resulting from the purchase of a Nebraska company by a national entity and successful defense of an insurance broker against a suit alleging ERISA violations and seeking $7 million.
