The Law Offices of Paul M. Cramer, LLC have extensive experience in handling complex business disputes. We represent businesses ranging from Mom and Pop stores to Fortune 500 companies. While the issues and amount of money involved may be different, most business disputes involve a contract. Contracts are the framework of virtually every business enterprise. Business disputes can and usually will cost time and money. We understand that timely resolution of a business or commercial dispute is paramount to preserving the legal and business interests of clients. We understand that time constraints and financial challenges of litigation sometimes require more creative approaches to the resolution of business disputes. Such “out of the box” approaches often resolve a dispute in its earliest phase. Even when both sides have drawn a line in the sand, creative thinking can save time and money and result in an acceptable resolution. We are committed to keeping all lines of communication open and exploring alternative dispute resolution options through negotiation, mediation or arbitration.
