Resolving business disputes in Louisiana

Business-related issues are many and varying throughout the state of Louisiana. From day-to-day transactions to long-term contract negotiations, business owners, employees and third party participants often face difficult challenges that lead to business disputes. Determining how best to resolve these issues in a swift and economically feasible fashion is not always easy.

A recent incident involves one promotion company suing another for tortious interference in a contract signed by a former world champion fighter.
