Massachusetts Business & Commercial Appeal Attorney

The future of your business may be riding on the outcome of the legal dispute in which you now find yourself. Less dire situations still evoke uncertainty, which is bad for business. This can be a drain on your resources and take your attention away from the important task of running the business.

Equally problematic is a violation of the federal and Massachusetts consumer protection statutes. Consumers have important protected rights and interests. For example:

  • Massachusetts Chapter 93A
  • Federal Trade Commission Act (FTCA)
  • Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
  • Truth in Lending Act (TILA)
  • Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA)
  • Automobile Lemon Laws
  • Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA)
  • And a host of MA and federal privacy statutes

Businesses must keep their own house in order. That includes the traditional responsibilities regarding employee relationships, business-to-business and business-to-consumer obligations. For example:

  • Trade secret & non-compete agreements
  • Contracts, leases, and warrantees
  • Tortious interference with contract or economic advantage
  • Employment and labor issues
  • Discrimination and wage-hour disputes
  • Defamation and false advertising
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
  • Breach of good faith and fair dealing
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

Entrepreneurs, business owners and corporations seeking to protect or overturn a trial decision require a new type of attorney, an appeals attorney. Contact (978-846-5184) Appeals Attorney William M. Driscoll to learn more.
