Commercial Law Attorneys Representing Cuyahoga County, OH Businesses

Business transactions, contractual matters, financing, and related commercial deals are becoming more and more complex, with relationships extending beyond Ohio and into the global economy. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the Ohio Commercial Code, bankruptcy statutes, federal and state court rules, and other legal fields that impact your business. We can assist with dispute resolution and litigation in:

Bankruptcy and Insolvency Disputes: Our attorneys advocate for creditors and debtors in bankruptcy and related proceedings, including contested claims. We possess keen investigative skills to pinpoint fraudulent transfers, and we can fight for your rights when successor liability threatens your interests.

Commercial Leasing: Leases for commercial space offer fewer protections for lessors and lessees, though both parties have more bargaining power as compared to residential leases. Still, extensive negotiations result in specific lease terms, which can lead to disputes. Disagreements over improvements, subletting, use clauses, base rent, and rent increases are common.

Equipment Financing and Leasing: Considering the enormous capital investment with some asset purchases, many businesses use equipment leases and financing arrangements as a resource. The downside is that acceptance, installation, maintenance, and repairs can lead to disputes between a leasing company and lessee.

Sales of Goods: Quality, quantity, delivery, inspection, and return of nonconforming goods form the basis of most legal challenges in this area of law. The Ohio Commercial Code includes specific terms regarding the sale of goods, including when agreements must be in writing.

Commercial Paper: State law also covers transactions related to commercial paper, such as letters of credit, bills of lading, promissory notes, and other debt instruments. The complexities of these documents are the source of many business disputes.
