Attorneys at Law


Business Disputes


The attorneys at Oberman Thompson represent both companies and individuals with their business disputes in Minnesota state and federal courts, arbitration, mediation and various hybrid/combination forms of dispute resolution. These disputes may contain a single issue or multiple issues, some of which may be intertwined, and often concern one or more of the following:

  • Business owners (i.e. break-ups, business records, dissenter’s rights, various buy-sell, owner, member control and cross-purchase agreements, unfair prejudice and valuation)
  • Contracts (i.e. employment and independent contractor, sales and commercial code, warranty and related real estate, construction, promissory note and guaranty instruments)
  • Competition matters (i.e. non-compete, non-solicitation, trade secret, confidential information, and trademark and copyright)
  • Deceptive and unfair trade practices
  • Defamation and business disparagements

  • Equity (i.e. restraining orders, injunctions, constructive trusts, unjust enrichment, quantum meruit, accountings, freezing of assets and disgorgements)
  • Fiduciary and loyalty duties
  • Fraudulent activities
  • Insurance and sureties/bonds
  • Interference with actual and prospective contractual relations
  • Landlord/tenant concerns

We also represent non-parties who find themselves subpoenaed for deposition testimony or document production, and serve as local counsel for out-state lawyers who are handling civil disputes in Minnesota.
