Litigation for most businesses is not routine, and at KHK we don’t treat it that way. Contract and business tort issues arise frequently in any business relationship. Whether the dispute involves failed contracts, misappropriation of a trade secret, unfair competition, fraud, employment disputes, civil violations of the RICO statute, defamation, real estate or construction, the environment, shareholder oppression, or other commercial claims, we immediately seek out the facts, identify and evaluate potential claims and defenses, and propose a battle plan.
Commercial disputes in Wisconsin often arise from a lack of understanding of state law. Termination of a dealership in Wisconsin, for example, involves a special set of legal requirements, and is more difficult than almost anywhere else. Similarly, Wisconsin law looks upon restrictive covenants with suspicion, thus favoring the mobility of employees when a covenant is not carefully drafted. We at KHK understand how Wisconsin law applies to these and other various commercial relationships.
