Our Corpus Christi commercial litigation attorneys are ready to represent you in many types of cases, including those involving:

  • Insurance disputes. It can be frustrating and financially crippling when you have faithfully paid your insurance premiums only to be denied the coverage you are entitled to when you need it most. Our experienced commercial litigation team has dealt with a myriad of insurance disputes and understands the complexities involved. We can critically analyze your case, review your insurance policy, and devise an effective litigation strategy. Our objective is not just to get your claim paid but to also ensure you receive the full benefits your policy promises.
  • Landlord-tenant disputes. Common landlord-tenant conflicts can involve rent arrears, property damage, lease termination, eviction, the return of deposits, and other issues. We are well-equipped to represent both landlords and tenants involved in disputes. For landlords, we understand the financial implications of property damage, unpaid rent, or unresolved lease terminations, and we work tirelessly to ensure your investments are protected. For tenants, we know that housing disputes can be deeply personal and stressful. We can work to ensure that your rights are upheld, whether the issue is improper eviction, unfair withholding of deposits, or violation of tenant rights.
  • Environmental damage from gas or oil contamination. Pipeline leaks, oil spills, fracking activities, and improper waste disposal can all contaminate soil and groundwater resources. Such contamination not only degrades the environment but can also significantly decrease the value of the affected property. The cleanup and restoration process is often costly and time-consuming, and property owners have the right to seek legal recourse to recover the associated expenses. If your property has been affected by oil or gas-related environmental damage, we can help you pursue just compensation for your losses. 
  • Substandard construction. Substandard construction refers to instances where a building or structure has been constructed in a manner that does not meet the required building codes and safety standards. This can include a variety of issues, from using inferior quality materials to neglecting proper procedures or safety regulations during the construction process. The consequences of substandard construction can be dire, potentially putting the safety of the occupants at risk and decreasing the property’s value. Even worse, substandard construction tends to increase maintenance costs due to premature wear and tear and/or structural defects that demand immediate repair solutions. Property owners affected by substandard construction have the right to take legal action against the responsible parties, which could include the construction company, contractors, or other related entities. We can help you pursue damages to cover the cost of repairs, property devaluation, and in some cases, emotional distress.
  • Breach of employment contract. Both employees and employers can potentially violate the terms of an employment contract, and the consequences may in some cases warrant litigation to make the adversely affected party whole. Common breaches include failure to pay wages, unlawful termination, violation of non-compete or non-disclosure agreements, and lack of provision for stipulated benefits. More specifically, employers may breach an employment contract by creating a hostile work environment, discriminating against employees, or not adhering to the terms related to job security. Employee-driven breaches can happen due to unauthorized disclosure of confidential information, non-compliance with contract terms after termination, or failure to meet performance expectations mentioned in the contract. Commercial litigation may be necessary when these breaches cause significant harm to either party and informal resolution attempts have been unproductive. For instance, if an employee's unlawful termination leads to financial hardship, or if an employer's failure to pay agreed wages persists despite negotiations, a lawsuit may be the most effective recourse. We can provide knowledgeable guidance and representation in these situations.
  • Whistleblower retaliation. Whistleblower retaliation refers to adverse action taken by an employer against an employee who has reported unlawful or unethical practices within the organization. This retaliation can take many forms, including termination, harassment, demotion, or other forms of discrimination. The law, however, offers strong protection to whistleblowers, recognizing the courage it takes to speak out against wrongdoing. Under federal and many state laws, it is illegal for employers to retaliate against whistleblowers. This includes not just direct retaliation but also subtler forms of punishment like unjustifiably negative performance evaluations or ostracism. Our Corpus Christi commercial litigation lawyers are proud to enforce the rights of whistleblowers and can help you understand your legal options if you have suffered retaliation. Note that compensation for whistleblower retaliation can include job reinstatement, back pay, and damages for emotional distress.
  • Commercial property leasing disputes. Conflicts concerning commercial property leasing can arise due to disagreements over lease terms, rental increases, maintenance responsibilities, lease renewals, and various other reasons. A tenant might face issues like unexpected charges, inappropriate lease termination, or unaddressed maintenance problems. On the other hand, landlords might have to deal with late or unpaid rent, unauthorized alterations to the property, or violation of lease terms by the tenant. If you are a commercial landlord, we can assist in pursuing unpaid rent, enforcing lease terms, or dealing with problematic tenants. If you are a tenant, we can help protect your rights, ensuring that you're not overcharged or unfairly evicted.
  • Business partnership conflicts. Business partnerships can sometimes be fraught with conflicts that, if not effectively managed, can lead to the dissolution of the partnership or harm the overall business. These conflicts can arise due to disagreements over business strategy, financial management, allocation of roles and responsibilities, or perceived inequity in workloads or profits among partners. It's also common for personal issues, such as differences in work styles or communication breakdowns, to cause strife within a business partnership. We can provide valuable guidance to help manage and resolve partnership conflicts, which may include assisting with conflict resolution strategies, advising on possible legal implications, and even facilitating mediation or negotiation sessions to resolve disputes amicably. If litigation becomes necessary, our team is prepared to represent your interests assertively and effectively in court.
  • Professional negligence. Professional negligence occurs when a professional fails to exhibit the degree of skill, care, and diligence that is expected of a person in their profession, resulting in harm or loss to a client. This can manifest in several fields and is not limited to legal, brokerage, financial planning, and investment malpractice. A party harmed by professional negligence has the right to seek legal remedy for their losses, and we can help enforce this right through our aggressive representation.

Our Corpus Christi commercial litigation attorneys can handle cases of all kinds and will always fight to deliver an optimal resolution.
