Fort Walton Beach Trial Lawyers Fighting for Clients in the Courtroom
Disputes and litigation are a part of life for many businesses and individuals across Florida. When not handled head-on, court battles can prove costly, time-consuming, and detrimental to your interests and investments.
At Southern Legal, our Fort Walton Beach trial lawyers help clients navigate a wide range of complex commercial and other types of litigation. We combine nearly a century of experience fighting for clients in the courtroom and helping them efficiently resolve disputes without long and drawn-out litigation whenever possible.
Common Cases We Handle
Lawsuits can arise in a number of different situations, raising a variety of legal and factual questions. The key is to spot potential issues and address brewing disputes as early as possible to limit the impact and avoid drawn-out court battles.
Our firm commonly represents individual and business clients in the following types of litigation.
Breach of Contract
Contracts are legal agreements used in all walks of life, from renting a car or buying property to making business purchases and hiring employees. They are at the heart of operations for companies throughout Florida and across the country.
Breach of contract claims arise when one party to an agreement alleges that one or more other parties did not live up to their responsibilities under the agreement. That may be because the party failed to perform what was required, made it impossible for another party to perform, or indicates that it does not intend to honor the deal.
A person or entity alleging breach of contract can seek monetary damages for the financial harm directly caused by the breach.
Real Estate Litigation
Contracts are commonly used in all aspects of real estate transactions, whether for real estate purchase or financing, commercial leases, etc. These agreements are also often at the center of real estate disputes.
Our Fort Walton Beach trial lawyers routinely advise real estate developers, home buyers and sellers, and businesses involved in commercial leasing on a full range of legal issues.
Commercial Transactions and Other Business Disputes
When business deals go sideways, litigation often follows. Our lawyers take a comprehensive and forward-looking approach to advising clients on commercial transactions.
We negotiate, draft and review legal agreements to ensure that our client’s rights and interests are protected and we work aggressively to ensure that others uphold their end of the agreement. Our attorneys also proactively work to spot and resolve issues as they arise, rather than waiting for them to balloon into complex litigation.
State and Federal Disputes
We are trusted advocates with decades of experience representing people and businesses before the full spectrum of state, local, and federal tribunals.
