Protecting Your Business Interests

During its lifecycle, a business will face countless legal challenges. One of the hallmarks of a successful business is its ability to foresee such challenges and address them proactively when possible, or to take them on with agility and efficiency when they arise.

Nialis Law Group, APLC, is an outstanding resource for companies of all sizes, government bodies, and other business entities across the spectrum of California commerce. Applying more than 35 years of experience and wide-ranging knowledge, we are committed to protecting our clients' vital interests and achieving their goals while containing legal expenses.

Based in Orange County, we are equipped to analyze your immediate or ongoing business concerns and deliver practical, reliable guidance. Principal attorney Mark Nialis has built a track record of success in negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation in state and federal courts.

Resolving Commercial Litigation

We litigate business disputes of all kinds, including:

  • Disputes among partners, shareholders, and LLC members

  • Business versus business disputes, including disputes with vendors

  • Disputes over contracts, including breach of contract claims

  • Disputes over the sale of a business

  • Business torts

  • Disputes over business fraud and wrongful conduct

  • Commercial real estate disputes

  • Commercial landlord/tenant disputes

  • Employment disputes

  • Insurance disputes

Businesses do not engage in disputes for their own sake. Every dispute is the result of another party attempting to stand between a business and its goals. The purpose of business litigation is to clear an obstacle out of the path as quickly and cost-effectively as possible to get back on track toward success. When we begin a business dispute case, we spend as much time learning about what the business is trying to accomplish overall as we do about the specifics of the dispute at hand. This allows us to tailor a legal strategy with the final goal in mind.

We leverage our trial strength to resolve disputes. This does not necessarily mean we always go to trial. The majority of business disputes are resolved through negotiation or a form of alternative dispute resolution such as mediation or arbitration. We are effective negotiators, in part because we are prepared to take the next step. If our opponent is unwilling to concede to an outcome that our client is happy with, the opponent will have to face us in court, where we have a record of success arguing even the most complex claims.

Our law firm also handles insurance defense and professional license defense, including issues related to tort claims, title claims, and errors and omissions (E&O) coverage.
