Whether you are facing a lawsuit concerning intellectual property, product liability, a partnership dissolution, or any other make-or-break scenario, Burg Simpson is ready to assist you. Our lawyers understand what is at stake and can serve as your counsel amid any major challenges.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Breach of fiduciary duty is a serious matter. It refers to when a party known as a fiduciary violates his or her responsibility to act in the best interest of another party (known as a represented person; see Arizona Revised Statutes § 47-3307).
At Burg Simpson, we serve businesses on both sides of breach of fiduciary duty actions. Depending on your needs, we can pursue damages or mount a rigorous defense against accusations of a breach.
Business fraud is another common source of intense litigation. Issues of false representation, embezzlement, financial improprieties, and more can have major ramifications for your business.
One of the most complicated areas of commercial fraud litigation is securities fraud. Fraudulent activities involving stocks and investments carry not only financial penalties but potential criminal prosecution. Businesses dealing with any kind of securities fraud issues should immediately seek legal representation.
Real Estate and Land Use
For businesses, real estate transactions involve significant money. They are also subject to substantial legal oversight.
Whether you are buying or selling, you need to make sure you are in compliance with all applicable regulations and rules. This includes zoning, disclosure of defects, and more.
Whistleblower Protection and the False Claims Act
The False Claims Act is a national law that protects employees who blow the whistle on companies engaging in activities that defraud the government. Arizona has enacted similar legislation that provides legal protection to workers and agencies at the state level.
Burg Simpson is committed to helping whistleblowers expose wrongdoing. Our attorneys can ensure that you are protected from retaliation. If the government is successful in recovering money based on the information you provide, we will also work to ensure that you are compensated fairly.
Special Districts Litigation
Special districts (classified as “special taxing districts” under Title 48 of the Arizona Revised Statutes) are political subdivisions. They must be created to provide essential public services to a municipality, county, or the state as a whole.
Homeowners and business owners may contest the formation of special districts for a number of reasons. Our firm can handle special districts litigation if a local government entity is infringing on your rights.
