When disputes arise, our attorneys are extremely adept at helping clients find the course of action that helps them achieve their objectives in a cost-effective manner, and with minimal disruption to their business. Typically, this involves exploring options for mediation, arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings.
But when litigation is wise, warranted or necessary, we are fierce advocates for our clients in the courtroom, and staunch defenders of their rights and their assets. Our experienced litigators will fight tirelessly for your organization, while keeping an unwavering focus on your objectives and your best interests.
Commercial litigation is what we do best. We prosecute and defend all types of commercial and business disputes in both state and federal courts, as well as arbitrations and mediations. We are exceptionally experienced in cases involving contract claims, real estate disputes, construction, banking, Uniform Commercial Code, Texas Deceptive Trade Practices claims, general and limited partnership disputes, complex commercial fraud matters, lender-liability disputes, and antitrust claims.
Corporate governance issues are a core competency of Hallett & Perrin. We have extensive experience handling an broad array of complex corporate control actions, including shareholder disputes, class actions, shareholder derivative actions, acquisitions and sale of assets disputes, and business “divorces.” We also represent broker-dealers, underwriters, investors, outside/inside directors, management, registered representatives, and corporate and individual defendants in a host of actions, including violations of state and federal securities laws, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, and other business torts in various forums, including state and federal court and FINRA arbitration.
Our attorneys have successfully defended all types of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including actions involving catastrophic injuries and mass torts that span a wide range of negligence scenarios. Past cases in this area include individuals, entities within the healthcare industry, manufacturers of products, and carriers in the transportation industry.
The majority of disputes in civil litigation that are tried to verdict involve negligent acts, omissions or defective products. Our trial attorneys have handled an array of these cases over the years. They are well-respected in courtrooms across the state for the vigorous defense they provide our clients in general negligence and product liability matters involving commercial transportation companies, medical device manufacturers, nursing home and long-term care facilities, construction companies, chemical companies and distributors, individuals or business owners of property against whom premise liability claims are made by third parties or employee workplace non-subscriber liability claims are asserted.
