Small Business Transactions & Litigation

Our attorneys represent numerous small and medium size business entities in a wide array of litigation matters.  On the plaintiff side, our work often consists of filing suit, as necessary, to enforce collection rights or obtain damages for breach of contract.  On the defense side, we have substantial experience defending and consulting on employment matters, including age discrimination, sexual harassment and wrongful discharge.  We also represent clients in lawsuits involving commercial leases, employment contracts and non-compete agreements. 

The firm's business transaction service includes entity registration and formation documents for corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies.  Additional work includes contracts with vendors and customers, employment agreements and shareholder/member agreements relating to ownership rights.

Merchant & Kay's business practice includes representation on construction related matters for homeowners, contractors, architects and engineers.  Our attorneys have trial experience successfully defending and pursing claims in excess of $1,000,000.00.  In addition to litigation, we serve numerous clients through preparation and consultation on contracts ranging from multi-million dollar commercial projects to single family residences.  We are able to rely on a well developed network of consulting engineers, architects, and contractors to assist in the evaluation and resolution of construction claims. 

We offer a variety of fee arrangements to our business clients, including flat fee, contingent, modified-contingent and hourly billing.  We view each matter as if it were our own business.  This provides the best results for business clients who need the resources of litigation attorneys to resolve disputes in the most efficient and satisfactory manner possible.
