Business and commercial disputes can take a variety of forms. For instance, someone may have wronged you or your business by breaching a contract, infringing on your intellectual property rights, or failing to pay an overdue invoice. Conversely, someone could be suing you or your business over similar issues. In either of these situations, we have the experience and knowledge to protect your rights. Here are some of the types of business and commercial disputes that we handle:
Florida TCPA Attorney
There are a litany of laws are in place to protect consumers from debt collectors and telemarketers; so many laws that many people do not even realize that the laws exist. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), for example, prevents businesses from continuously calling and harassing people. And the TCPA does not just apply to debt collectors, it also applies to telemarketers as well as direct service providers (such as your cable or internet provider). It also protects you if someone is calling you for another person's debt, such as a debt owed by a relative.
In addition, other laws such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are in place to prevent improper debt collection and credit reporting procedures. Many states also have their own versions of these laws, such as Florida's Consumer Collections Practices Act (FCCPA).
Our TCPA and other consumer protection cases generally start with a simple call from individuals like you who are receiving calls from debt collectors or telemarketers. We can help get the calls and collections practices stopped and will evaluate whether the other party was violating the law. If the law was violated, consumer's are sometimes entitled to compensation--for example, up to $500 per call under the TCPA.
Florida Insurance Coverage Attorney
In our insurance cases, our goal is to level the playing field for businesses and individuals in disputes in coverage disputes. We represent policyholders and insurance carriers in the often-complex world of insurance coverage disputes.
Our clients include carriers, businesses, and individuals involved in disputes over insurance coverage arising out of virtually every type of insurance policy. We also represent insurers interested in suing other insurance companies that have acted improperly. Whenever an insurance company refuses to pay your claim, fails to provide a defense, denies your claim, or offers an insufficient amount, we will work to hold the insurance company to its obligations. Conversely, if a carrier has insurance issue with a policyholder, we evaluate coverage and determine if a declamatory action is the proper route. If you have questions about how we can assist you with an insurance dispute, please contact us. We are happy to answer your questions and schedule a free consultation for you to meet with an experienced Florida insurance attorney.
Our insurance cases often involve policyholders whose insurance companies have unreasonably denied or delayed payment of valid claims, or failed to defend them from lawsuits, or are improperly defending them under a reservation of rights to later deny coverage. In coverage disputes, it is sometimes necessary to pursue litigation or file an insurance bad faith claim.
