Commercial Litigation

Business disputes can be costly, in terms of time, money, disruption to operations, and distractions.  Commercial litigation is often complex — procedurally, legally and factually.  Such disputes always take the parties away from more productive pursuits.  Business disputes can also be addressed through creative resolutions.  For these reasons, we always look first for reasonable solutions to commercial disputes before running to the courthouse.

But, pre-suit solutions are not always possible.  In such cases, our attorneys immerse themselves into the problems our clients face to position them for the best possible outcome should the case go to trial in state court, federal court, arbitration, or before an administrative agency.

Our experienced lawyers have represented clients in simple and complex cases involving a variety of areas of commercial law, including:

  • Business torts
  • Contract disputes
  • Insurance coverage disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Shareholder derivative suits
  • Securities fraud
  • Accounting actions
  • Real estate contract disputes
  • Partnership and shareholder buy/sell disputes
  • Minority shareholder lockouts and dissociations
  • Minority shareholder/member oppression
  • Employment contracts
  • Lender liability
  • Construction disputes
  • Complex business workouts
  • Ownership of real estate
  • Partitions

The attorneys at Callison Tighe have spent decades representing South Carolina businesses in these and other matters. Several hold undergraduate degrees in business-related fields or have been involved in business management, experiences that allow them to better understand clients’ needs.

Callison Tighe attorneys are also experienced in representing clients through any appeals if necessary. Additionally, the firm includes certified mediators and arbitrators who bring those skills to the table on behalf of our clients in the context of litigation.
