No matter how hard a business tries, commercial disagreements are inevitable. When these situations arise, dealing with them diverts valuable commodities of management time and resources that could otherwise be applied to growing the business. To help a business successfully navigate through these situations and get it back to focusing on running the business, the steady and experienced hand of a skilled litigator is needed. The attorneys in the Business Litigation Service Group at Stites & Harbison, located in offices in Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia and Indiana, make every effort to assist clients in working their way through these contentious situations as efficiently and effectively as possible.

- the disposition of business entities
- plant closings
- insolvency and business failures
- trade secret and intellectual property issues
- insurance market misconduct
- claims asserted against financial professionals
- franchise terminations
- commercial real estate
- lender liability
- corporate directors and officers' duties, and
- securities and commercial disputes.
