Business Disputes

Experienced commercial litigation attorneys who will advocate for your interests in state and federal courts in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

The Business Litigation Group at Hamblett & Kerrigan includes experienced commercial litigation attorneys who will advocate for your interests in state and federal courts in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts, as well as before administrative agencies, in arbitrations, mediations and other private negotiations. Our attorneys have represented businesses in courts in a wide variety of commercial disputes and have successfully litigated or otherwise resolved such matters as contract disputes, shareholder derivative claims, stock option disputes, employee benefit disputes, fraudulent conveyance claims, wrongful discharge claims, discrimination and harassment claims, and claims involving noncompete agreements. Moreover, while we have the expertise, experience, and resources to effectively represent businesses before a jury, we also recognize the importance of cost-effective, expedient resolution of business disputes for our clients. Our attorneys are experienced in working in the context of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation and arbitration, where clients seek to negotiate reasonable resolutions to disputes either before or after litigation has been initiated.

In litigation matters, parties have needs which must be met. It may be that there is no reasonable alternative to litigating the matter to conclusion. Our attorneys are adept at moving the case through the judicial system in such a way as to ensure our client reaches the best obtainable result. Although claims are often extremely detailed and involve voluminous documentation, our attorneys manage the process effectively and efficiently on behalf of our clients because we understand that it is important to obtain a timely, cost effective resolution of the dispute. Hamblett & Kerrigan attorneys have represented businesses and individuals in New Hampshire and Massachusetts state courts, the New Hampshire Supreme Court, the United States District Court, and the United States Court of Appeals. Our attorneys also have extensive experience in resolving disputes before state and federal administrative agencies.

Hamblett & Kerrigan is a full service law firm. We have experienced lawyers who can provide you with help with tax planning, trust and estate planning and administration, employment, real estate and other issues which may be of concern to you.
