Forging Solutions To High-Stakes Business Disputes
Legal conflicts come with the territory. But it’s not “just business” when it impacts your bottom line, your workforce or the goodwill you’ve worked hard to achieve.
The Law Office of D. Clay Taylor is a trusted name in Minnesota legal circles. I offer 30 years of experience in business and commercial litigation across a wide range of industries. My philosophy is to tackle the conflict head-on to get the upper hand and resolve it as cost-effectively as possible.
Business Litigation In The Twin Cities And Statewide
I am Clay Taylor, a veteran litigator with a wide pedigree in business and civil litigation. Whether you are being sued or initiating legal action, I have probably handled a similar case. I can capably address any business-related conflict, including:
- Contract disputes with customers or suppliers
- Breach of contract in the purchase or sale of business assets
- Partnership disputes and freeze-outs
- Minority shareholder oppression
- Construction liens
- Sales rep commissions
- Noncompete agreements and theft of trade secrets
- Commercial lease disputes
- Enforcement of judgments and collections
I have specific experience with apparel, footwear and sporting goods companies, auto and power equipment dealerships and the food industry, among others. I also have focused experience representing distribution companies and franchise business owners in legal disputes. I cater to a diverse clientele from small startups to established mid-sized companies in Minnesota and nationwide.
Getting Down To Brass Tacks
You work directly with me, but I have a skilled support team helping me do a deep dive into your adversary and the relevant legal research. We work swiftly to isolate the core dispute and take proactive measures. My goal is to engineer a prompt and favorable resolution or put you in the driver’s seat if your dispute escalates. You can always decide to settle a case, but you want to negotiate or litigate from a position of strength.
I have dozens of jury trials and arbitrations under my belt, and I have many times stood toe to toe against big corporations and their squads of lawyers. Ultimately, the decision is yours to go to trial or settle things out of court. My job is to explore and expand your options and to protect your enterprise from external (or internal) threats.
