Hedrick Gardner’s Business and Commercial Litigation Practice Group represents businesses in a broad spectrum of commercial disputes. We solve complex business problems for clients across a wide array of industries, including manufacturing, technology, insurance, financial services, real estate, professional services, and transportation. Our attorneys litigate virtually every kind of commercial dispute, including claims for breach of contract, fraud, unfair trade practices, interference with contractual or economic relations, violations of consumer protection laws, breach of fiduciary duty, and other business torts.
