What happens to your business when a contract is broken, information is misrepresented or trade secrets are stolen? When your success is thwarted by the unlawful actions of others, Simmons Hanly Conroy can help you stand up for your rights.
We understand that not all businesses and individuals have the resources – or the desire – to pay lawyers on the traditional hourly fee model. Our clients rarely are the types of individuals and businesses for whom litigation is thought of simply as one of the “costs of doing business.” This is why we strive to establish innovative fee arrangements that work for our clients.
When one party does not live up to its end of an agreement, there may be a legal action for breach of contract. Our attorneys have experience litigating contract actions in state and federal courts as well as before arbitration panels around the country.
Under certain circumstances, the law recognizes and requires persons in certain positions to treat others with an elevated duty of loyalty, confidence and trust. Fiduciary obligations often dictate the conduct of parties, such as trustees, corporate directors, commercial joint venturers, investment advisors and retirement plan administrators and sponsors, among others. On both a class and individual basis, Simmons Hanly Conroy has experience litigating disputes of various types where fiduciaries have failed to live up to their obligations.
Depending on the precise circumstances, a range of conduct can be classified as unfair competition. In the United States, the antitrust laws prohibit, among other things, certain types of monopolies or attempts at monopolization, certain predatory pricing practices and certain agreements among or between ostensible competitors, which serve to reduce competition. Antitrust claims frequently are litigated on behalf of commercial plaintiffs or as class actions on behalf of entire groups of plaintiffs adversely impacted through the competitive injury at issue. Simmons Hanly Conroy has successfully litigated many of these types of claims.
Simmons Hanly Conroy, for instance, is counsel in several injury and death actions relating to Toyota unintended acceleration accidents. Our firm also was counsel of record in the first-filed consumer class action lawsuit against Toyota relating to sudden acceleration – long before the wave of Toyota and Lexus recalls beginning in early 2010 – and was the first firm to seek injunctive relief against Toyota and to move for class certification in those actions.
Altogether, these cases present complex issues relating to, among other things, product liability, fraud, warranty, violation of consumer protection statutes and economic losses.
