Chicago Business Litigation Attorney

At Vaziri Law, we provide innovative legal strategies to business clients involved in all types of business disputes, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Breach of warranty
  • Business collections
  • Business fraud
  • Employment-related disputes (e.g. sexual harassment, wage and hour, discrimination)
  • Insurance disputes
  • Tortious interference
  • Shareholder, partner, and member disputes
  • UCC litigation

If your business has suffered harm due to another party’s breach, bad faith, or malfeasance, we will help you explore all your legal options. Because a protracted legal battle can adversely impact your business operations and bottom line, we often recommend pursuing alternative forms of dispute resolution (e.g. negotiation, mediation, arbitration).

At the same time, we are fully prepared to litigate in state and federal court. Regardless of the forum, our legal team has a proven history of achieving positive outcomes in business litigation and will work closely with you to protect your interests. 

Business Formation and Startup Services Attorney Serving Chicago

Starting a new business is exciting, but it is crucial to have a solid foundation. Our firm advises startups and entrepreneurs on all aspects of business formation, from entity selection to preparing organizational documents (e.g. articles of incorporation, bylaws), business licenses, and permits. 

We work with clients to establish various types of business entities, including:

  • Subchapter C corporation
  • Subchapter S corporation
  • Limited liability company (LLC)
  • Partnership (general, limited)
  • Joint venture

In short, it is essential to select an entity that minimizes the risk to your business and personal assets and allows you to achieve your objectives in the market. Our experienced Chicago business lawyer will also provide you with trustworthy advice and counsel on related business matters, such as regulatory compliance and employment law. Above all, trust Varizi Law to help you make informed decisions that allow you to start and grow your new business. 

Intellectual Property Protection: Copyrights, Trademarks, Trade Secrets

Whether your business is looking to establish a presence in the marketplace or needs to protect its confidential business information, it is essential to have proper legal representation. Our firm provides advice and guidance to clients on a wide range of intellectual property (IP) matters, including:

  • Copyrights — We assist clients with copyright registration, draft cease and desist letters to protect their copyrights when necessary, and litigate copyright infringement cases.
  • Trademarks — Our legal team conducts searches of the U.S. patent office trademark database (TESS) to verify that a trademark is not in use and assists clients with trademark registration. In the event of trademark infringement, we are fully prepared to litigate. 
  • Trade secrets — We work to help clients protect their confidential business information, processes, client lists, and other trade secrets from trade secret theft by preparing well-conceived nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements to prevent trade secret misappropriation by employees, vendors, strategic partners, and competitors. 

At Vaziri Law LLC, we are keenly aware of the value of IP assets and will work closely with you to protect your intellectual property rights.

Business Transaction Attorneys

When necessary, we collaborate within our network of business lawyers and form a strategic team to advise clients about a wide range of transactions (joint ventures, asset sales, M&A) and negotiate and draft the necessary agreements — buy-sell agreements, operating agreements, partnership agreements, shareholder agreements, employment agreements, noncompete, and nondisclosure agreements.
