When a business in Texas has a legal dispute with a bigger company, a powerful corporate competitor, or an obstinate governmental body, the attorneys at Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, will level the playing field by representing you.
Law firms with less experience declined to get involved with court battles against Texas Instruments when it failed to honor legal commitments to International Silicon Solutions, one of their long-time vendors. However, our expert team of business litigators answered the call to protect the smaller business and its rights. We filed the lawsuit, and after one day we successfully negotiated a deal worth $8,060,000 on behalf of ISS that secured an additional two years of ongoing business between the two parties, and guaranteed reparations for past damages.
“I was being steamrolled by Texas Instruments. As the months dragged on and law firm after law firm shied away from our David vs. Goliath case, the financial strain on my small business grew. I genuinely feared the loss of my business. When Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, entered the case, the entire climate changed and the case was resolved in my favor.” – Gary Barrett, International Silicon Solutions
A short time ago, we aided a client who had established numerous, individual corporate entities to separately perform several functions in the production, processing, and packaging of orange juice. Our client invested considerable personal sums of money to finance this business venture, and he also borrowed significant amounts of money from other partnerships. Unfortunately, the orange juice industry suffered a decline, and our client had to work hard to significantly reduce the impact on him and his business partners. He eventually found himself in a lot of debt, and he was sued by his former business partner, the CEO of a big company trading on the NYSE. However, the attorneys at Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, were called in to help when the case was proceeding towards trial. The plaintiff approached our litigation team about resolving the dispute after finishing his lingering deposition. We effectively negotiated settlement terms that allowed our client to only pay his own debts and no others. The successful settlement minimized our client’s liability to less than 25 percent of the millions of dollars the plaintiff had originally sought.
“Eberstein & Witherite’s speedy and global resolution of my case enabled me to redirect my energies to my other business interests without interruption.” – Todd Follmer
City officials north of the Dallas are accused our client, a world-renowned golf instructor, of failure to comply with ordinances and municipal laws governing the lighting aspects of his business. Our client was afraid that his golf practice facility would be shut down. Also, city officials and inspectors declined to meet at the bargaining table. So the attorneys at Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, took the city to trial. Our knowledgeable trial team worked with the assistance of lighting experts to successfully convince the court that our client was in compliance.
“If I had been forced to remove the lights, or worse, to shut my doors, it would have been a financial disaster. Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, fought city hall and helped keep my facility open for business.” – Hank Haney
These clients and many others in similar situations have benefited from the assistance of a sturdy trial law firm that is aware of the many challenges that small businesses face on a daily basis. Our trial law firm is also a small business. We know that a commercial misrepresentation, breached contract, or other wrongful act can cause the loss of profit and productivity for a small business, and we know that these losses can put a business in jeopardy. The rates charged by expert attorneys who normally resolve these disputes are often outside the budget of small business owners. Bigger companies and their business associates know about this problem, and they exploit it to their own benefit. However, the knowledgeable Texas business litigation attorneys of Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, are the solution that evens out the litigation playing field. We protect small businesses and their legal rights.
