Business Law

The Ross Law Firm offers an array of legal services tailored to the specific size, category, and needs of the company. These services range from work on transactional projects to periodic counseling on day-to-day issues to representation in commercial and employment lawsuits.

Transactional and “Outside Counsel” Services

During the time of owning my business I could not ask for a better attorney. I always felt as though I was the priority. – K.R.

A commercial or employment lawsuit can devastate a business, particularly if that business is a defendant. Even a business that ultimately prevails often will have paid substantial legal fees and diverted significant resources from profitable pursuits. That is why, despite its litigation practice, the Ross Law Firm devotes much of its efforts to helping clients prevent legal disputes – by assisting them with business transactions and advising them on an on-going basis.

Our transactional practice includes the review, evaluation, drafting, and/or negotiation of a variety of contracts and other documents, including the following:

  • Buy-sell agreements (including asset purchase agreements)
  • Employment contracts, restrictive covenants (such as non-competition agreements and non-solicitation agreements), severance agreements, confidentiality agreements, and other agreements specific to employment law
  • Employee handbooks
  • Personal service contracts
  • Releases
  • Leases and other property-related contracts
  • Agreements and other documents specific to employment law

Toward similar ends, we offer ongoing “outside general counsel” services. In short, many businesses face day-to-day or periodic legal questions and concerns but lack the resources to hire in-house counsel. The Ross Law Firm can meet the needs of such a business by serving as its “go-to” lawyers: the attorneys with whom the client has established a relationship and who knows the company, the players, and the playing field. We aim to help you meet your business objectives while avoiding and preventing inadvertent violations of the law. We would be pleased to discuss with you how we can keep your legal costs manageable while ensuring that you will have the assistance you need when you need it.

Litigation & Dispute Resolution

David has a keen command of the procedural and strategic elements of commercial litigation, a quick understanding of facts, and an ability to effectively communicate positions, both in written and oral argument. He is a pleasure to work with. – James M. Loots, Esq.

Client business owners can find themselves engaged in disputes with individuals and companies, such as vendors, landlords, and competitors. The Ross Law Firm draws on its considerable litigation experience to intervene and attempt to resolve the dispute on favorable terms before it escalates into costly, distracting, and time-consuming litigation. When litigation cannot be avoided, however, the Firm is poised to proceed.

Dave Ross has extensive litigation experience in the business law arena, where he has handled complex litigation involving various types of claims, including the following:

  • Franchise-related claims
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Lease disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets
  • Tortuous interference with contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duties
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Unfair trade practices
  • Defamation and commercial disparagement
  • Other commercial torts
  • The prosecution and defense of actions seeking temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions
  • Employment claims

Finally, the Ross Law Firm works to protect its clients’ interests and to resolve business-related disputes through complex dispute resolution, settlement negotiations (before or after suit has been filed), and representation at mediation.
