Business Litigation Services

Business litigation matters are highly disruptive, to say the least. Most owners want to devote their time and money to things like strategic planning and business development, instead of an ongoing legal dispute which only depletes precious resources which could be spent on scaling business operations.

The other side usually feels the same way, which is why many business litigation matters are resolved rather quickly. But a prompt resolution is not your only priority. It is also critically important that your voice is heard and that your personal rights and business assets are protected.

Experienced business litigation attorneys like Silvio Nardoni and Theo Theodosiadis know how to navigate clients through every step of the legal process until the case is resolved. During the in-depth initial consultation, we ask the right questions to clearly establish your goals and priorities. We then design a plan to resolve your business litigation matters and execute that plan with the help of our professional legal team while ensuring that every client’s particular needs are heard, understood, and exceeded.

What Business Litigation Matters Does Archimedes Law Group Handle?

Almost all California business owners are involved in litigation at one time or another. Many times, the dispute arises through no fault of their own. During our more than thirty years in Southern California, we have successfully handled all manner of business litigation disputes, including:

Collection Issues

Those thin profit margins (or expended high-profit engagements) also depend on prompt payment according to the agreed contract terms. If this process breaks down, your business needs immediate solutions. That is what we offer.

Customer Problems

Due to ownership changes, financial uncertainties, or just plain bad luck, customer relationships that have been mutually profitable for years can unexpectedly go sour. Silvio and Theo work closely with each of our clients to proactively address these issues to avoid any litigation. In the event of a legal dispute between businesses and customers, Archimedes Law provides legal representation and other business litigation services.

Ownership Disputes

When partners or co-owners launch their enterprises, they are usually working toward the same ends and are in agreement on the most important business matters. But over time, circumstances or goals change and disagreements develop. When these disagreements become business litigation disputes, Archimedes Law Group is there.

Vendor & Supplier Issues

Most California businesses operate with very narrow margins. They depend on a steady supply of goods or services, consistent payment terms, and other such items. If supply problems significantly impact your business, an attorney may need to help set things right.

How Does Archimedes Law Protect Your Business Interests?

Every business litigation case, and every client, is different. In our experience, a systematic approach that focuses on understanding each particular client’s needs with detailed case-by-case analysis to provide unique solutions for all business litigation matters you may experience. We find that this approach works much better than using a general legal toolbox full of bland solutions that usually (but don’t always) work.

When we first accept a case, we examine the nature of the legal problem. If the dispute is a one-off that is unlikely to occur again, an early and confidential settlement is often in the client’s best interests. On the other hand, if the issue involves a form contract or a routine transaction, we assume a much more aggressive posture. We want to make sure that quick resolution is brought to the issue with minimal impact on the business entity and its assets while ensuring that the current dispute doesn’t mushroom into a bigger problem.

Next, we develop a cohesive theme for each particular case. This theme includes a message that will remain consistent throughout the discovery and pretrial motions phase and into the resolution phase. By defining this theme clearly, we are able to direct the narrative in our favor without being swayed by the opposition’s position.

Finally, and perhaps more importantly, we work together with you (the client) to form a clear definition of a “win.” It is amazing how many business litigation attorneys begin what may turn into a legal marathon without clearly knowing where the finish line is. Whatever your definition of success is, that is the one that informs our strategy the most.

How Will Archimedes Law Group Resolve Your Business Litigation Case?

A staggering 97 percent of civil cases either settle before trial or are dismissed before trial, though dismissals are rare unless the evidence is one-sided and an attorney’s legal arguments are very effective. The most skillful attorneys resolve business litigation matters through:

Formal Mediation

Judges strongly urge the use of mediation procedures in business litigation matters in which a neutral third party, a retired judge or a lawyer unaffiliated with the case, works to facilitate a settlement. Formal mediation, even if it is court-ordered, often succeeds because it helps both parties to discover where common ground between their two positions may exist.

Informal Negotiation

Sometimes, the attorneys on each side can forge a mutually acceptable resolution. As mentioned earlier, both sides are often interested in an early settlement. So, these negotiations are often beneficial to both parties involved in a business litigation dispute.


Many business contracts stipulate that any disputes will go to arbitration rather than trial. An arbiter is much like a judge. This person hears the evidence and arguments of counsel and then makes a decision. Sometimes arbitration is binding and sometimes it is not binding. Determining the most efficient path through an arbitration procedure requires continual adjustment throughout the case.
