Negotiating agreements and resolving disputes are an everyday part doing business. Some of the more common financial, security, and investment disputes we handle for our clients include:

  • Stock distribution: Disagreements over a company issuing stock frequently center on the subject of price, but conflicts can also arise over how that stock is distributed, too, among other things.
  • Fund access: Business partners frequently clash over the ability to access certain corporate assets.
  • Disclosure: Corporate investments have to be handled carefully, and only after full disclosures are made to investors. Otherwise, companies run the risk of exposure to allegations of fraud.
  • Foreign investments: Domestic investments are complex enough, but investing overseas can add a layer of complications that intimidate most businesses – and their attorneys.
  • Fiduciary duty breach: Fiduciary duties can exist in a variety of business relationships. Simply put, when a party agrees to act for the benefit of another, they become involved in a fiduciary relationship.

If you need assistance dealing with any of these corporate disputes, you need the assistance of experienced legal counsel to help protect your interests and those of your business. Call a Denver corporate litigation lawyer at Burg Simpson immediately at 303-792-5595 for help.

A breach of contract occurs when any party fails to perform any term of the contract without a legitimate legal excuse. Breach of contract is one of the most frequent reasons for lawsuits. Typically, these disputes can be resolved if the parties can agree on a contract modification.

The statute of limitations on contract breach claims can vary wildly, depending on the circumstances. Generally speaking, Colorado allows three years for a breach lawsuit over a written contract, two years for an oral agreement, and two years for tort actions stemming from a breach of contract.

If you’re involved in a dispute over a legal agreement, whether its employment contracts, non-competes, or buy-sell agreements, please reach out to the Denver corporate litigation lawyers at Burg Simpson by calling 303-792-5595 now.
