Protecting your Brand and Reputation Management
A competitive market environment may lead to publications of untrue reviews, a competitor passing off their products or services as yours, misleading or deceptive conduct allegations, or the infringement of your trade marks and intellectual property.

Business Succession Disputes
Business succession is a vital part of any business, but not all business succession transactions, director/shareholder exits are able to proceed to completion smoothly. Corney & Lind Lawyers are able to assist you with legal advice in the disputes that arise at the critical junctures of a business exit, from negotiating necessary releases under a shareholder’s agreement, to resolving a disagreement over a business valuation.
Internal and Stakeholder Disputes
We have experience in dealing with the difficult executive management, employees or sub-contractors that have misappropriated Business resources, resolving issues where an employee has acted inappropriately, or even in breach of their restraint of trade or non-solicitation obligations.
Recovering your Debts
Running a business can be hard enough even without also having to deal with unpaid accounts. Especially in today’s economic climate those accounts can remain unpaid for ever increasing amounts of time. Unfortunately, it can get to the stage where you need professional debt recovery and debt collection legal assistance to attempt the recovery of unpaid debts.
