Business & Real Estate Litigation

Businesses throughout Georgia look to Stone & Baxter’s litigation lawyers for guidance, assistance and aggressive representation in a wide range of business and real estate related disputes. Our litigation lawyers have deep experience in handling a wide variety of business litigation matters. We represent our clients’ interests in cases ranging from routine contract disputes to complex “bet the company” matters involving injunctive or other extraordinary relief. Our size makes us especially well-suited for matters requiring immediate action, and our litigation lawyers are frequently retained to represent our clients in matters requiring special urgency and complexity. We strive to apply flexibility, creativity, and resourcefulness in the face of such tasks.

Our litigation lawyers represent clients in matters before state and federal trial and appellate courts, in arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and in state and federal regulatory proceedings. Our clients include mid-market and privately owned businesses such as financial services providers, telecommunication and utility providers, material suppliers and manufactures, transportation companies, corporate officers and directors, energy companies, individuals, restaurants and hospitality services, and retail companies.

Our practice is to first understand our clients and their business, which allows us to more efficiently and effectively advocate on their behalf. At the outset of any case, we take the time to familiarize ourselves with our clients’ business model and industry. We then manage the litigation with an eye toward achieving our clients’ strategic business objectives. Our clients rely on us to not only advise them of immediate litigation concerns, but also to assess how litigation will impact the businesses long term goals.

In addition to our business litigation practice, the litigation lawyers at Stone & Baxter are also equipped to handle a diverse range of real estate legal matters, including real estate litigation. Our litigation lawyers represent developers, builders, bankers and private investors, and buyers and sellers in disputes involving contracts, zoning, acquisition and development of land for office, retail, mixed-use, condo conversions, and other commercial and industrial projects. We routinely represent borrowers and lenders in foreclosure matters, including confirmation trials.  We represent our clients in disputes that arise at all stages of the development process.
