WHAT IS BUSINESS AND COMMERCIAL LAW?
Business and commercial law are so frequently paired together because they both feature issues that often overlap. Most attorneys experienced in one type of law are usually experienced in the other as well. Business law falls under the jurisdiction of both state and federal laws, which govern stocks, investments, workplace safety, employment laws, and the environment. Commercial law, on the other hand, administers commercial transactions. The first impulse of most business owners is to try to negotiate business and/or commercial law issues themselves. But when it comes to the complex legal details that surround business and commercial law, business owners need all the help they can get. So do not wait to contact a Phoenix attorney at Burg Simpson Arizona before it is too late!
Most of the people in today’s workforce are classified as at-will employees, which simply means that employers can terminate their employment at any time without cause. That is, as long as that termination is not based on any of a variety of protected categories, such as age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, disability, among others. There are typically other right-to-terminate exceptions like retaliation for a legal action, as in a whistleblower case.
Some employees sign a contract when they are hired, which normally guides the terms of their employment. If you are convinced your employer has discriminated against you or that they have violated the terms of your contract, you need to speak with an Arizona business lawyer at Burg Simpson as soon as possible.
Employment cases are often difficult and always personal. The civil litigation lawyers at Burg Simpson Arizona have decades of experience overseeing employment cases.

NEGOTIATING DISPUTES, MANAGING SEPARATIONS
For business partners, severing ties can be fatal to the company and very personal. The counsel of an objective third party can avert time-consuming litigation and instead lead to a more mutually beneficial resolution. Disagreements between business partners may include differences over responsibilities, the division of assets, ownership of intellectual property, and post-dissolution provisions. Our corporate litigation lawyers can look out for your best interests and ensure your compliance with highly technical dissolution requirements.
Burg Simpson’s corporate litigation attorneys are experienced litigators and can leverage their expertise in negotiations to resolve disputes before it makes it to a courtroom – if possible. But when negotiations stall out, Burg Simpson Arizona will take your fight all the way to trial.
