Commercial Litigation

Businesses across the Northwest and beyond trust the attorneys at Campbell & Bissell, PLLC to represent them and craft a solution for their commercial needs, from the negotiation table or mediator’s office to the courtroom. Our goal is the same as yours – to resolve the matter for you favorably and efficiently so you can turn your attention back to running your business and doing what you do best.

Our lawyers routinely handle breach of contract and business tort cases and a host of other matters that arise.

Breach of Contract

Contract disputes are bound to arise in the course of business, given the multitude of transactions conducted and agreements formed every day with customers, employees, vendors, suppliers, distributors, and more. Disputes that are not resolved in a prompt, efficient manner have the capacity to divert the time, attention, and resources of the company and its key people, stopping the flow of normal business operations. We work to resolve the dispute through the most efficient and effective means available, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or litigation, if necessary. Our lawyers handle breach of contract and breach of warranty cases in the construction industry and across the landscape of business industries and occupations.



Business Torts

Regardless of a contractual relationship, businesses may also be liable for tort-based actions involving competitors, customers, or the general public. The class of business torts includes fraud, unfair business practices, deceptive trade practices, unfair competition, defamation, embezzlement, and interference with contractual relations. Whereas contractual damages are generally limited to actual, provable economic losses, liability for business torts can extend to noneconomic damages with significant compensation owed to a successful plaintiff.


Business Entity Dispute

Whether formed for a particular short-term project or to establish a permanent business, business entities such as partnership, limited liability companies and corporations can become mired in litigation when a conflict arises or an impasse is reached regarding how the business is to act in a certain area. From formation to dissolution, issues surrounding buy/sell agreements and business succession require knowledgeable and experienced business law attorneys who can find the best path to resolution of the current dispute with any continuing long-term business relationship in mind.




Insurance Defense and Coverage Issues

Disputes are common in the course of business and companies often look toward their various insurance policies for coverage.  We have experience defending claims made against businesses pursuant to their insurance policy which provides for a legal defense.  Additionally, we have experience interpreting insurance policies and related law in order to maximize insurance coverage for any potential or actual claims made against your business.

Real Estate Litigation

Real estate transactions and development projects require a significant investment of time and money on the part of developers and purchasers. Just performing the preliminary work to identify a suitable site can be very time-consuming and expensive. Once that perfect property is found, there are still many steps before the deal can be closed or project completed, and any problem along the way can potentially derail the entire project.

We work to resolve the dispute in the quickest and most cost-efficient manner available. We handle all types of real estate disputes, including:

  • Title litigation – title defects and adverse possession claims on the property; contractual disputes at closing;
  • Escrow – funds held in escrow during a real estate transaction or as a condition or a mortgage can lead to a dispute if funds are held too long or disbursed prematurely, or if more money is held than is necessary;
  • Construction claims – mechanic’s liens, payment and performance bonds, stop notices, delay claims and extra work claims, contract defaults, construction defects;
  • Eviction – from property damage and nonpayment of rent to nuisance or other conditions requiring an interpretation of complex lease provisions; and
  • Breach of contract – claims for damages or specific performance.
