Houston Business to Business Litigation Attorneys

Houston has been recognized as a leading center of developing businesses offering unique and innovative deliverables in the energy, medical, food services, and IT sectors. As businesses enter into more complex transactions, it is inevitable that some of those transactions will “go south.” While the first recourse should be to put the “deal back on track,” many times litigation is necessary to protect our client’s financial commitment and business interest.

Business to Business Litigation in Houston Requires the Right Counsel

Business-to-business litigation can take a variety of forms, but one thing remains constant: business litigation requires the right legal counsel, with a team of tested trial attorneys, with state court, federal court, and arbitration experience.  VLF has that experience. Commercial matters require skill, experience, and a commitment to serve the clients interest efficiently. A high-stakes “bet the company” lawsuits, where companies survival depends on the outcome of the dispute, requires sound, strategic, and knowledgeable counsel. Not only do our attorneys bring a deep knowledge of the substantive law affecting these disputes, but VLF’s business litigators deliver results and clarity. In the hot glare of business litigation, both growing and established clients have relied on VLF as their litigation attorneys.

The Number of Business to Business Cases A Firm Has Taken to Trial in Houston Matters

In selecting business litigators, it is not a law firm’s advertising that matters. It is a very simple yet essential question: “how many times have you taken a case to trial, to a jury verdict in the last eighteen months?” If the answer is just once or twice, they are unprepared to handle the aggressive strategic lawsuit that you or your business is about to face. Every attorney at VLF is required to be in trial or evidentiary hearing within 18 months of him or her being hired by the firm. The simple reason is that if they are not experienced in the most stressful avenue of our business, they cannot effectively represent our clients as business litigators, and they cannot effectively advise our clients of the risks to be weighed in a case that affects our client’s business. Quite simply, we are trial lawyers.  Our record speaks for itself.

Prior to meeting with our business litigation attorneys about your case, you should have the following information ready:

  • Written correspondence, such as emails, text, and formal documents identifying the obligations each party must undertake;
  • records showing how you or your business have relied, or intend to rely, on the relationship with the adverse party;
  • Proof that you or your business has performed or was ready, willing, and able to perform;
  • Documentation regarding any reason the other party had to take the action (or inaction) complained of; and
  • You must identify damages.  The financial consequence to you or your business as a result of what has happened.

I wanted to personally thank you and your staff again for doing such a great job. VLF has been simply amazing. Their professionalism, negotiating skills, and knowledge of the law have simply been a lifesaver for my business. The overall settlement was so much more than we ever expected and hoped for. Simply put, they saved my company. I cannot say enough about your firm and its staff. Thanks to you, my company will continue to grow and be profitable. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
