Commercial litigation is the blanket term for litigation between businesses. Business disputes can occur at all stages of business. Common business disputes include:

- Insurance coverage or claims issues
- Liability of yourself or other business officers
- Malpractice or professional liability lawsuits
- Real estate issues
- Trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks
Our law firm seeks to help you resolve your dispute early using successful negotiation tactics. This enables you to avoid the ballooning costs of a civil lawsuit.

When you are a business, you must hire employees who you can trust and rely upon. However, employee-employer issues account for the most common form of business dispute. These issues include:
- Injury on the job and workers’ compensation claims
- Sexual harassment
- Discrimination and hostile work environment
- Wrongful termination and retaliation
- Administrative hearings
- Workplace embezzlement
- Employee negligence
- Employee contract disputes involving job functions, benefits or salary
- Union disputes
- ADA accommodations
- Worker safety and hazard issues
Employment law issues typically implicate both federal and state laws, especially allegations involving workplace discrimination. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Kourosh Pourmorady are well-versed in employment law and have over 47 years of combined experience with representing Los Angeles businesses in employer-employee disputes.
A contract is an agreement between at least two parties in which one party gives consideration in exchange for something. In the business world, consideration is often money. For instance, you may hire an architect to design your office building. Your consideration is the money you pay, and in return, you get design services. Valid contracts are legally binding. When one party breaks a contract, he or she will be liable for damages.
In general, if a party breaks a contract, the other party has the duty to minimize damages. If you hire a plumbing company to fix a leak in your restaurant’s bathroom and the plumbing company backs out at the last second, you cannot continue to let the water flow and mold accumulate, then seek damages for all of the subsequent damage caused by your refusal to hire a new plumber.
The party in breach will be required to make you whole. These damages are known as expectancy damages. You are placed in the position you expected to be in had the contract been fulfilled. Oftentimes, this simply amounts to a refund. Because the courts do not like to force parties in breach to fulfill contracts, the court will instead require a full refund so that you can find another person willing to do the job. Parties in partial breach will also be required to make you whole.
Contract disputes can occur during business formation with other companies you contract with to help you start your business; between your business and an employee; during operations with another business that provides services such as a distributor; or between your business and a customer. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Kourosh Pourmorady are well-versed in contract law and are eager to assist you with negotiating and settling your contract dispute.
