Resolutions for Business Disputes

Business Litigation

Our Newport News Attorneys can help resolve business disputes

If a business wins in the courtroom, but does so at great cost to its bottom line, reputation, and relationships, a true victory has not been achieved. An experienced business litigation attorney can help your business make favorable decisions that lead to success from both a legal and a business perspective.

At Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C., we are fully aware that parties to business disputes and litigation have a number of different goals. In addition to obtaining a positive result, clients want efficient and effective resolutions, so they can spend their time operating their business, not sitting in a courtroom. We strive for a result that meets these business needs, yet avoids damage to our clinet's image as well as its bottom line.

We aim to provide practical and effective guidance at each stage of a case.

We can help your business resolve all types of business disputes, such as:

  • Shareholder and corporate disputes
  • Member, manager and limited liability company disputes
  • Partner and partnership disputes
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Trade secrets and trade dress litigation
  • Fraud and deceit claims
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Non-compete and nondisclosure issues
  • Officer and director liability
  • Risk management

Risk Management is an Integral Part in How Our Attorneys Help You

When discussing the possibility of litigation, we encourage clients to think of business litigation as a separate joint venture. Throughout a case, our team at Heath, Overbey, Verser & Old, P.L.C. will encourage you to consider the time and expense you will put into this venture, and whether it will likely produce the results you desire. We also counsel business clients on the use of different methods of alternative dispute resolution, such as negotiation, mediation or settlement conference programs, which often can yield favorable resolutions without the cost, time investment, and publicity of litigation. However, if trial is unavoidable, we have the experience to get the job done.

Our attorneys have helped many Newport News and Penninsula businesses achieve success in the courtroom. One of the ways we measure our reputation in this regard is the number of requests we receive from other lawyers. In fact, one of the firm's partners, Len Heath, was selected for inclusion as a Super Lawyer® in business litigation from 2005 to 2009 and 2011 to 2012. Prior to entering law school, Len graduated from the College of William and Mary Business School, which provided him unique training and experience to assist clients in resolving, and even avoiding, business disputes.
