Civil litigation is a broad term that covers most of what are normally called “lawsuits.” Litigation that involves business matters can be particularly lengthy, complex, and expensive. That’s why it’s essential that you, as a business owner, seek quality legal representation.

The trial-tested litigators at Tully Rinckey PLLC are ready to provide you with aggressive representation in any civil matter. It’s important to note, however, that due to statute of limitations laws you may have only a relatively narrow timeframe for initiating a lawsuit. One of our attorneys can review your case and provide a roadmap for addressing your grievances or defending your company from the grievances of others.

Conflicts in real estate transactions can sometimes become more difficult than you can manage on your own. If real estate litigation becomes a possibility, you’ll need an experienced attorney on your side.

If you are faced with a contract dispute, it’s important to seek legal representation as soon as possible. Not only can this help to preserve your relationship with the other party, but it can ensure that your business is protected.

At Tully Rinckey PLLC, our experienced business attorneys can review your contract and represent you in negotiations with the other party. We help you parse the terms of the contract, understand your rights, and provide a way forward. Protection of your interests will always be paramount in the work we do for you.

Insurance litigation can be quite complex. If you represent an insurance carrier, you know you may need legal assistance in investigating claims, assessing policies and preparing recommendations on claims, and defending against bad faith and fraudulent claims. If you’re an insurance policyholder, you may need to take legal action against an insurance provider. In either case, you want the best legal representation you can get.

Federal and state laws set strict time limits on when businesses and individuals can file a lawsuit against another party. In some cases, the statute of limitations begins when a violation or problem first took place. In other cases, the statute of limitations begins when a violation has been discovered.

Property owners who believe that they are victims of shoddy work and poor business practices need an aggressive construction litigation attorney on their side. So do the contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers, and suppliers who performed their jobs and met their contractual obligations, but who aren’t being paid.

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s attorneys have significant experience in this area of law, representing both businesses and individuals. We offer quality legal representation that helps you achieve justice and protects your personal or business interests. Statutes of limitations laws set strict limits as to when you can file a lawsuit, however. So, if you don’t act quickly, you may lose your opportunity to receive compensation.

If you or your business has suffered a significant loss due to a breach of contract, you’re entitled to go to court to force the other party to meet their contractual obligations. You may also sue for financial and other damages caused by the breach. Whether you wish to file such a suit, or need to defend against one, you need experienced legal representation to protect your personal or corporate interests.

We can also represent trustees in federal district and bankruptcy courts, as well as state supreme courts.

Warranties guarantee and assure consumers of the quality of the products they buy. A breach of warranty can happen when a consumer discovers that a product or service is not what it was purported to be (warranty of merchantability) or when the item fails to meet or perform any of its advertised capabilities (warranty of fitness for a particular purpose).

Tully Rinckey PLLC’s experienced attorneys can help you hold businesses accountable for faulty goods, ensuring that you either get your money’s worth or your money back. If you have made a purchase and believe that the seller is in violation of the warranty, it is important to seek legal assistance before the statute of limitations runs out.

The employer/employee relationship can give rise to a host of issues. Decisions such as hiring, firing, demoting or disciplining an employee may result in a claim against the employer. A business can also face claims by employees who allege they were wrongly discriminated against or harassed. Recent attention to the problem of workplace sexual harassment has some anticipating a coming wave of employee sexual harassment suits. While many may be familiar with class action lawsuits against large, multinational companies, smaller companies may also face employment-related disputes.

If a company has an Employment Practices Liability Insurance (“EPLI”) policy, it may seek coverage to offset some of the cost of defense and a judgment or settlement, if any.

EPLI is a form of liability insurance that is specifically tailored for employment-related disputes.

However, an EPLI policy is not meant to cover all employment-related disputes. Typical EPLI policies may exclude from coverage employee-related claims such as wage and hour disputes, ERISA disputes, and violations of the “WARN Act.” Coverage disputes can develop as to whether a claim is covered, whether it was timely reported, allocation (when a claim involves some allegations that may be potentially covered and other allegations that are not), and disputes concerning interrelated claims. An experienced coverage attorney can navigate these issues.

Tully Rinckey PLLC insurance law attorneys are experienced in representing businesses in EPLI claims. Our attorneys are skilled at problem solving, whether through informal resolution or litigation. Our attorneys have handled EPLI disputes concerning reinstatement of coverage, allocation of defense costs, and policy interpretation and construction.

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or “ERISA” applies to most private sector employee benefit plans. Such plans may include disability, accident, and medical benefits. ERISA litigation is handled much differently than first-party insurance disputes under non-ERISA plans.

ERISA disputes are generally litigated in federal court, are not tried to a jury, and damages are limited. Claims available under state law may be preempted by the ERISA statutory scheme. There are also differences in discovery and the evidence on which the matter is decided, typically referred to as the administrative record.

The court may, in its discretion, award reasonable attorney’s fees to a party in an ERISA action.

ERISA does not apply to all retirement plans. Plans by Federal, state, or local government are not covered by ERISA. Plans that meet the criteria of “church plans” are also not governed by ERISA.

In addition to disputes between a plan participant or beneficiary and the plan administrator, ERISA may be implicated in disputes over provider reimbursement claims.

Tully Rinckey PLLC insurance law attorneys are experienced in representing insurance companies in ERISA disputes. Our representative matters include defending a carrier in a dispute alleging ERISA and state law claims over life insurance proceeds and a coverage dispute concerning a claim under an accidental death policy, among others. Our AV Preeminent-rated attorneys are capable of representing clients in ERISA claims in federal courts throughout Texas.

No matter the precautions taken in the design and manufacturing process, injuries can still occur.  When they do, companies must be prepared to defend themselves against product liability claims.

Tully Rinckey PLLC attorneys have represented manufacturers in defense of product liability claims involving vehicles and equipment. Such experience includes defending a golf cart manufacturer when one of its vehicles unintentionally powered forward and seriously injured the cart’s owner, leading to quadriplegia. Such experience also includes defending a commercial lawnmower manufacturer against a claim where a rollover accident caused the owner a serious head injury.

If your company is facing a product liability claim, talk to one of our Tully Rinckey PLLC attorneys. We will discuss the matter at hand and determine the best course of action to defend your company’s interests. Often, these matters can be resolved through mediation or arbitration, but we are always prepared to aggressively represent you in state or federal court.
