Business Litigation

If you own or operate a small business, you understand that disputes arise on a regular basis. One of your customers fails to pay a bill on a timely basis or a supplier provides materials that don't meet your needs or specifications. A trusted employee leaves and disagreements arise regarding severance or non-compete issues. You want an experienced attorney to protect your rights, one who knows the issues that small businesses face, one who has protected the interests of small business owners in similar situations.

At the Law Office of C. Burt Newell, our attorneys bring over 30 years of combined litigation experience to businesses and business owners throughout Arkansas. We take an aggressive approach on behalf of our clients, working hard to protect your rights throughout the legal process, from the filing of a complaint through any appeals. We will carefully listen to your concerns so that we can help you understand all your options.

We represent businesses and business owners as plaintiffs or defendants in civil lawsuits, handling claims involving:

  • Breach of contract. We handle claims involving the failure of a customer to pay, as well as other contractual disputes, such as substandard or non-performance by a supplier, distributor or other party to a contract.
  • Employment issues. We represent employees and employers in discrimination and sexual harassment claims. We also handle wrongful termination claims.
  • Mergers and acquisitions. When two or more companies have entered into an agreement to combine business operations and something goes wrong, we can represent either side.

We will help you identify all your options and work to get the results you seek, whether you want monetary damages for your losses or simply want the other party to a business deal to live up to their promises. Because we have represented both sides in these types of disputes, we can anticipate the tactics and strategies that will be employed, and can help you take the necessary steps to protect your interests.
