Commercial Litigation

In today's commercial environment, disputes between businesses can sometimes seem inevitable.  At LAPEROUSE, APLC, we aim to assist our clients on the front end of their business relationships by effectively negotiating and drafting commercial agreements to avoid costly disputes down the road, or to at least be in the best position should such a dispute arise. 

Most businesses naturally seek to avoid litigation, but the failure to adequately protect legal interests can be devastating to a company. The right legal representation is an investment, not merely an expense; even so, businesses must navigate the tension between securing the most effective advocacy possible and managing litigation costs.
LAPEROUSE, APLC offers commercial clients the best of both worlds, featuring attorneys with a wealth of commercial transaction and litigation experience that includes years of practice in large law firms.  We aim to cost-effectively assist our clients in the resolution of major disputes between businesses, including breach of contract; unfair and deceptive trade practices; non-competition and non-disclosure agreements; fraudulent misrepresentation, infringement of copyright and trademark; defamation; and more.


Client-Centered Advocacy


LAPEROUSE, APLC recognizes that each client is unique in its needs and ability to tolerate risk. Our goal is to give our clients answers to the questions they didn't know they needed to ask, so that they can make informed decisions.


We believe that when our clients are armed with the right information, our attorneys are better able to advocate effectively for the outcomes clients need.
