Commercial litigation often involves sophisticated legal issues, high financial stakes, and the competing interests of several businesses. At Negem & Worthington, we understand that defendants with deep pockets may rely on their vast resources to discourage plaintiffs from pursuing claims; we focus our efforts on minimizing the effects of the dispute on our clients’ day-to-day operations by resolving even the most complex disputes as swiftly as possible. Our extensive commercial litigation experience includes:
Establishing patent infringement often requires weaving together elements of law, design, technology, and science to establish whether an individual or business improperly made, used, or sold your patented product or method. We can help you conclusively prove that infringement occurred and sue for relief in federal court on your behalf. A successful patent infringement suit results in an injunction, meaning that the defendant must stop the infringing activity, and/or pay damages based on either a reasonable royalty rate or lost profits (whichever is larger). If the court finds that the infringement was deliberate, it may also award punitive damages, which can be up to three times the amount of financial damages that may be rewarded.
People and businesses enter into contracts on a daily basis. If a party to a contract fails to honor promises under the contract’s terms or has shown through words or conduct that it will not honor its obligations, that party may be liable for breach of contract. There are several different types of contractual breaches, including:
Under Texas law, insurance companies owe a duty of good faith and fair dealing to the people whom they insure. This duty requires insurance companies to pay legitimate claims properly and promptly; and furthermore, insurance companies cannot refuse, discount, or delay payment of legitimate claims. If your insurance company fails to perform according to the terms of your policy, you may be entitled to compensation, and potentially, punitive damages. Going up against an insurance company requires the support of a diligent, aggressive attorney. At Negem & Worthington, we have extensive experience representing the victims of wrongful denial of claims, and are not intimidated by the size or resources of the insurance companies responsible.
