Business Litigation

The business litigators at Connelly & Collier have been resolving disputes involving business since the inception of the firm. We represent individuals, companies, governmental agencies, public institutions, and other business entities, both in the profit and not-for-profit sectors, in the resolution of business disputes. Our clients have included publicly traded companies such as Chrysler, Owens Corning, Owens-Illinois, Norfolk Southern Corp., Libbey, Inc., KeyBank, Pilkington, N.A. and PNC, as well as privately owned regional companies such as Rudolph/Libbe, Inc., GEM Industrial, Inc., and Willis Day Properties, Inc.

Our mission and philosophy at Connelly & Collier is to serve our clients, both large and small, with a personal touch. We are large enough to provide the knowledge, technology, and depth necessary to adequately maintain and track multiple cases, while being small enough to understand the business goals of our clients. We represent each and every client vigorously, while at the same time being as cost-effective as possible.

The types of business disputes we have handled vary widely and encompass a number of areas including conflicts between shareholders, particularly with respect to shareholders of closely-held corporations; breach of contract; employment matters, including covenants not to compete; predatory lending; and fraud. We have extensive experience in matters arising under statutes such as the Uniform Commercial Code, the Fair Housing Act, Title VII, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

We represent clients throughout Northwest Ohio. Our proven trial experience involving complicated business disputes has enhanced our clients’ ability to achieve prompt, cost-effective, and efficient results.
