Business Tort Litigation

A “business tort” refers to an intentional action or breach of duty that interferes with a business’s property, economic interests, or relationships. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of situations from which a business tort claim can arise, but the most common cases involve:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Unfair business practices
  • Violation of trade secrets.

With exceptional guidance and innovative strategies, we provide the best business representation in Howard County.


Asset Litigation

Assets like real property, start-up capital, patents, and licenses help businesses achieve their goals, but they cause contention between parties. Common asset disputes include classification, management, use, or transfer of assets and profits.

The experienced Howard County business and corporate lawyers at Coover Law Firm have the skills and knowledge to resolve disputes and make an arrangement that will benefit you the most.


Business Entity Formation

Business and corporate law include structuring business entities – establishing corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, and other business arrangements. In addition, corporate law focuses on advising clients on corporate governance matters, including issuance of stock and preparing shareholder and limited partnership agreements.

There are many different ways to own a company, including:

  • Sole Proprietorship – a business owned by one person
  • Partnership – a legal relationship between two or more persons who carry on business together to make a profit
  • Corporation – exists as its legal being. The owners of a corporation are its shareholders.
  • Limited Liability Company – Business owners enjoy the tax advantages of a partnership with the liability protection of a corporation

The chosen structure affects many aspects of the business, including taxation, liability, governance, management and control, transfer of ownership, and more. Attorneys at the Coover Law Firm, LLC advise clients on their options and handle all aspects of business entity formation with the structure that meets their needs and goals.
