Practice Areas

Business Litigation

The Los Angeles and Orange County law firm of Delman Vukmanovic LLP specializes in a wide range of civil litigation areas including:

Owner Disputes (Partners, Shareholders and LLC Members)

The corporate world contains a vast landscape of personal and financial concerns and intricate moving parts. Unfortunately, sometimes these interests end up working against each other.
Our attorneys have years of experience in litigating a wide variety of disputes effecting partnerships, competing shareholder interests and other related matters. These disputes cover conflicts stemming from:

  • Compensation and Shares Disbursement
  • Corporate and Personal Liability
  • Malfeasance; including Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices
  • Disagreements over Business Succession
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Defamation Allegations
  • Violation of Non–Solicitation or Non–Compete Agreements

Business Dissolution and Corporate Divorce

Dissolving a business or a business partnership can be every bit as contentious and troublesome as any other variety of divorce or relationship dissolution. Our attorneys are experienced in equitably and efficiently severing corporate ties between business owners that had been in force for months, or many years. Regardless of the reason, when a partnership fails, there are a host of potential problems that must be resolved. These problems can encompass:

  • determining basic financial payouts and obligations
  • disposition of shares and intellectual property assignments
  • establishing non–solicitation or non–compete edicts

Whether the corporate divorce is voluntarily sought or involuntarily imposed, a strong advocate on your team in times of strife is a must.

Unfair Business Practices

The state of California established its Unfair Competition Law to protect consumers and competitor businesses from unfair, illegal, and deceitful business practices. Often times the unfair business practices statute is violated by unlawful use on the Internet. Our attorneys have successfully represented both plaintiffs and defendants in a range of related issues stemming from accusations of such unfair business practices as:

  • Fraud
  • Defamation
  • Bad Faith
  • Intentional Misrepresentation
  • Misleading or False Advertising
  • Tortious Contract Interference
  • Unfair Competition
  • Violation of Non–Compete or Confidentiality Agreements
  • Breach of Contract
  • Other related matters

Business Debt Collection

It is an unfortunate fact that one of most the challenging aspects of business life occurs when clients or customers default on agreed–upon fees and payments. Moreover, chasing a client who is neglectful of their financial obligations is time–consuming and simply unpleasant. As a business person, pursuing a non–paying client means taking time and effort away from the energy you should be putting toward growing your business and servicing paying clients and customers.

Delman Vukmanovic provides aggrieved clients pre–litigation collection services and counseling dedicated to recovering our clients’ outstanding monies. If filing a legal complaint is warranted, our attorneys take charge of the pursuit after adapting a case – specific strategy for remuneration. In the face of aggressive litigation threats, many delinquent debtors satisfy the demands well before the courts get involved.

The well–established collection techniques of our experienced litigators have been proven to achieve quick and cost–effective collection results, culminating in overwhelming client satisfaction.

If you need aggressive representation, responsiveness and winning results, our experienced business attorneys welcome the opportunity to discuss your case.

Commercial Litigation

Delman Vukmanovic litigates the areas of civil law that greatly concern many businesses in Southern California, encompassing such diverse areas as:

  • Employment
  • Antitrust
  • Entertainment Disputes
  • Commercial Real Estate Disputes
  • Professional Liability and White Collar

Every member of our legal team is acutely aware of how much can be at stake as they approach each business litigation; that’s why we commit the time and exhaustive effort to every case we accept. With a resolute combination of experience and out-of-the-box thinking, our seasoned attorneys actively assist our clients in resolving often extremely complex and nuanced commercial litigation matters. Our attorneys have expertise in — among other aspects of jurisprudence – regulations and bylaws involving the Uniform Commercial Code (the federally codified set of laws that ensure that each state’s trade and commercial laws are enforced across all state lines of the United States.)

Contract Disputes

A contract is the basic cornerstone of any business venture. Ideally, a sound business contract clearly spells out every conceivable detail pertaining to a business agreement; this is critically important because in the event of future disagreements, the contract is the most reliable way to ascertain what all involved parties committed to. Our attorneys have an extensive track record in taking charge and resolving all types of contract disputes – sometimes without setting foot inside of a courtroom.

Contractual disputes we settle through mediation or litigation include:

  • Commercial Lease
  • Purchase and Sale Agreement
  • Breach of Contract
  • Contract Fraud Claims
  • Interference with Contracts
  • Prospective Economic Damages, or Non–Payment Following Delivery
  • Goods or Services
  • Breaches of Personal Guaranty

Our initial consultations are complimentary.
