Business Litigation

Atlanta, Georgia Business Litigation and Trial Attorneys

The strength of your business and your career rests on the relationships that you have with your employer, your employees, your suppliers and your customers. If problems arise, they can affect all aspects of your life if they are not dealt with swiftly, cost-effectively, and permanently. But to do that, you need an attorney who is committed to understanding the circumstances of your business.

At Austin & Sparks, we have decades of experience in business litigation. We represent both employers and employees in all types of business disputes, including the following:

Wage & Hour Disputes

Federal and state law protects an employee's right to fair wages that he/she earned. When an employee works, he/she is legally entitled to receive fair pay for the fruits of his/her labor - pay that is dictated by law. Unfortunately, in many instances, some employers do not follow the law. We represent employees in claims for unpaid overtime and wages.

Derivative Actions

When an individual owns stock in a company, it is a normal expectation that the board of directors will put the best interest of the company first. Furthermore, it is expected that the board of directors will execute a competent strategy for profitability and growth. In fact, the board of directors has a legal duty to protect the interests of its shareholders. However, this is not always the case.

Employment Litigation

In today's economic climate, employment litigation is on the rise. The law firm of Austin & Sparks has experience in successfully handling employment litigation matters on behalf of both employees and employers. We represent employers and employees in employment discrimination and retaliation claims, covenants not to compete, non-solicitation clauses, confidentiality clauses, contract disputes, and non-payment of bonuses.

Contract Disputes
