Business Litigation

Our Litigators Represent Businesses and Business Owners Facing Complex and High-Stakes Disputes in Texas and Nationwide

Companies can face litigation in all aspects of their operations. From disputes with customers and vendors to litigation involving business partners, competitors, and proposed investments and acquisitions, a multitude of issues can leave companies and their owners with little choice but to protect their legal rights.

At Hagan Noll & Boyle, we take a strategic, cost-conscious, and forward-thinking approach to business litigation. While we will not hesitate to litigate our clients’ disputes through trial when necessary, we build the leverage needed to secure favorable out-of-court results whenever possible. With offices in Houston, we handle business disputes throughout Texas and nationwide, and we have a proven track record in courts across the country.

What We Do

We represent companies and their owners in disputes arising out of contractual relationships, in connection with proposed business deals, and other contexts. In addition to litigating in the state and federal courts, we have significant experience resolving business disputes through mediation and arbitration. When a client engages our firm in connection with a business dispute, we evaluate all potential paths forward, and we help our client make informed decisions about how best to proceed.

Our corporate business litigation clients include television stations and media companies, energy companies, software companies, and Fortune 500 companies in a broad range of other industries. We have successfully represented these and other clients in matters involving:
