About the Ross Law Firm

As a business owner, the last thing you need or want is a lawsuit. Disputes with partners, competitors, or employees divert time and resources from running (and growing) your business. That’s why it’s often preferable to prevent or settle one before suit is filed. When neither option proves feasible, however, we’re prepared to help you resolve your disagreement – on the terms most favorable to you – in court or through arbitration.

Our litigation prevention services include the following:

  • Preparation of business and employment contracts.
  • Thorough review and negotiation of franchise agreements, buy-sell agreements,  and other contracts.
  • Representation in pre-litigation negotiations aimed at early settlement.
  • Behind-the-scenes advice on issues related to compliance with governmental standards, avoidance of liability to third parties, and handling of potential or developing legal disputes.

But if you’ve already been served with a summons and complaint, had an administrative claim brought against you, or found yourself unable to settle a dispute on acceptable terms, you just might have no choice but to fight. In that case, you’ll need trial attorneys who not only know your business, but who also know the courtroom – and how to properly prepare for it.

Trials are often won or lost, and settlement leverage can be gained or squandered, weeks or months before the trial begins. Your best interests will be served by counsel who will be diligent every step of the way – obtaining the advantage and gaining small victories during each stage of the process, from the initial filing of documents through the discovery and investigation process, depositions, and ultimately, trial. It is these victories, strategies and the meticulous preparation that make them possible that have led to successful outcomes for our clients.

Whether a member of your company abused their position for personal gain, a former employee stole trade secrets and used them to compete with your business, or you are engaged in a franchise- or other business-related dispute, you need attorneys who will develop a strategy and apply it to the whole case, rather than waiting until the eve of trial.

At the Ross Law Firm, we’ll provide you with straightforward answers to your questions and work throughout your case to gain those small victories.


A Satisfied Client:

We have been clients of Dave’s for several years now. Dave has represented us in very complex issues, including antitrust, franchising, and business tort issues. He has represented us in arbitration, Federal Court, state court, administrative proceedings and continuously advised us in day-to-day business activities. Dave has a particular strength in litigating before a trier of fact. One reason for this is that he has always been better prepared than the opposing attorney. I would put Dave up against any large national law firm without hesitating. The other strength that stands out is that he has always done what he says he was going to do and done it on time.
