Commercial Litigation

We guide businesses and business owners through the full range of issues and disputes that arise during the course of doing business, including landlord-tenant disputes, debtor-creditor actions, products liability matters, partnership disputes, shareholder actions, construction matters, and employment issues. We strive to have a full understanding of not only our clients’ legal goals, but their business and social goals as well, so we can offer solutions and produce results that are consistent with the way they do business. Whether the objective is a fast, inexpensive resolution, or taking cases to trial with the goal of changing the legal landscape, we use the law to help our business clients get back to business.

Employment

We help our clients navigate the issues that arise at every stage of the employment relationship. From hiring to termination, we advise our clients on how to avoid liability for discrimination and harassment, how to manage leave laws and wage and hour issues, how to minimize liability through workplace policies, and how to effect terminations in a way that doesn’t leave the company exposed. In addition to advice, we have experience resolving disputes—whether through litigation or otherwise—when discrimination problems arise, when employees violate the terms of their non-compete agreements, and when bullying in the workplace results in claims against the company. When employment problems present themselves, we’re equipped to step in and handle it.

Financial Services

We help financial planners and investment managers maneuver through the oversight and regulation governing their work. We help our clients avoid common pitfalls, like conflicts of interest or satisfying their fiduciary duties. But we also advise our clients on cutting-edge issues where the realities of the financial services industry have outpaced regulation, such as how to proceed when aging clients no longer have the capacity to understand their own finances. At KluzEvans, we strive to ensure our clients operate within the spirit and letter of the law.

Insurance and Insurance Defense

We have extensive experience litigating a wide range of complex insurance matters and, as a result, we have developed a sophisticated understanding of the common law, statutes, regulations, and public policy considerations at play when insurance is at the heart of a dispute. We work with insurers, third-party administrators, and policyholders in insurance matters, ranging from first- and third-party property and liability coverage, complex insurance pricing and rate disputes, market conduct examinations, auto claims, commercial general liability matters, asbestos claims, insurance fraud cases, and cases involving allegations of insurer bad faith.
