A Legal Advocate For South Florida Business Litigation

The Law Offices of Geoffrey D. Ittleman, P.A. have more than 16 years of experience handling business litigation and appeals. We represent both South Florida and out-of-state clients on matters in Florida courts. Throughout our careers, we have handled business and franchise opportunity disputes, including issues relating to payments, breach of contract, bad faith claims, licensing disputes, anti-competition claims, business and franchise termination and vendor and supply arrangements.

Offering boutique legal services, our Fort Lauderdale franchise attorney will fight hard to help recover any monetary damages and awards you deserve and obtaining injunctive relief, if necessary.

Cost-Effective Legal Services That Produce Solutions

A lingering legal dispute is not only time consuming but costly. Our Fort Lauderdale franchise attorney will take the necessary steps to ensure that your case moves forward, with the ultimate goal of resolving your issues as quickly as possible.

Our firm also believes that it’s essential for you to know the costs involved before you commit to a lawsuit. We will calculate your projected attorney’s fees and all legal expenses upfront, providing you with our honest opinions about the successful likelihood for your case. This allows you to assess whether legal action is the best financial decision for you and your company. Remaining mindful of your legal costs, we can also recommend the correct course of action throughout your case.

We also offer flexible financial payments that best meet your specific needs and circumstances, and are open to contingency plans and hourly rates.

Franchise Disputes

A franchise can provide a lucrative business opportunity, especially for small business owners. A franchise is appealing because the franchisor provides branding, name recognition, structure, support services and negotiations. However, if the franchisor does not abide by their agreements or begins to impose unreasonable obligations, the relationship can quickly become strained, sacrificing profitability and the viability of the business. Our Fort Lauderdale franchise attorney will work to secure your rights under the contract.

Commercial Business Disputes

Large corporations have the benefit of having a team of attorneys that may try to pressure small businesses that do not have legal representation. Our firm will take on big corporations, as we believe in representing small businesses, which are the backbone of our economy. We work with franchisees, contractors, vendors, subcontractors, suppliers and other small businesses that face claims involving breach of contract or unfair business terms.
