Breach of Contract Claims: Contracts are at the foundation of most modern commercial relationships. A breach of an agreement can cause significant damage to the non-breaching party.

At Kline Preston Law Group, we have deep experience representing clients in complex breach of contract claims. Call our Nashville breach of contract attorney today for immediate assistance with your case.
Shareholder & Partnership Disputes: A dispute between shareholders or partners can cause major damage to a business.

With experience advising business owners and entrepreneurs on issues related to business structure & entity formation, our business litigation attorneys have the skills and knowledge to represent clients in shareholder disputes and partnership disputes.
Intellectual Property Cases: For many companies in Tennessee, their intellectual property portfolio is just as valuable as their tangible assets—if not even more so. Intellectual property includes everything from copyrights to trademarks to patents to trade secrets. Our business litigation lawyer represents companies involved in disputes over intellectual property matters, including copyright infringement claims, trademark infringement claims, patent infringement cases, disputes over IP licensing agreements, and trade secret misappropriation claims.
Employment Law Matters: For business owners, dealing with an employment law dispute can be frustrating. Our Nashville business litigation attorneys have experience assisting companies and organizations with a wide range of employment law issues, including defense against employment law claims, severance agreements, and non-disclosure agreements.
Business & Consumer Fraud Claims: Business & consumer fraud cases take many different forms. In our state, the primary legal protection for consumers is called the Tennessee Consumer Protection Act. Some notable examples of cases that arise under this law include false advertising, material misrepresentations or omissions, and bait-and-switch tactics. If you have questions about bringing or defending a claim under this statute or any related state or federal law, our Nashville, TN commercial litigation lawyers can help.
