San Jose Business Litigation Attorneys
Are you caught up in a dispute?
A solid contract, backed by due diligence, is the foundation of a successful business relationship. Whether it’s between a company and its shareholders, its employees, or other third-party entities, a well-negotiated contract can protect a company’s interests and bottom line. It’s also an excellent defense against costly disputes and legal action.
Unfortunately, on occasion disputes and threats of litigation still happen, causing friction between business partners or operations to grind to a halt. If you find yourself in this predicament, your best defense is a good lawyer who knows the ins and outs of business law.
The San Jose business litigation attorneys at the Law Office of Ruben P. Ruiz PC provide aggressive advocacy in high-stakes litigation, as well as effective alternative dispute resolution, to achieve one goal: To protect and advance your interests.
Our Approach to Business Litigation
For a small business, litigation comes with real risks that may threaten the future of your company. This is why we take a highly collaborative approach to resolving our clients’ business disputes. We go beyond the legal issues to fully understand your business, the challenges you’re facing, and the industry you’re in. This allows us to craft a strategy that’s aligned with your business interests.
We’ll work to resolve your dispute quickly and without needing to go to court. But our legal acumen and courtroom dexterity, honed by years of experience, enable us to guide you at every stage of business litigation, from the evaluation of claims to settlement and verdict.

Business Mediation and Arbitration
While we don’t hesitate to take cases to trial if necessary and even through to the appellate process, we know that litigation can be a costly affair, both in terms of time and money. Whenever it works in favor of our clients, our attorneys resolve business disputes out of court in order to manage costs and avoid the stress a lawsuit places on individuals and the company.
Our San Jose lawyers are highly trained in alternative dispute resolutions, particularly in a mediation environment to reach an agreement favorable to you, one that advances your business interests and preserves your bottom line — and your mental health.
As we noted above, a solid contract paves the way for successful relationships in business. Legal challenges often arise because contracts were not created as well as they could have been. We can examine your existing contracts to spot potential problem areas and help you address weaknesses. You can gain confidence knowing your interests are adequately protected.
Beyond contracts, we can help you understand other areas of potential legal liability and even recommend other attorneys in areas outside our specializations. Based in San Jose, California, the lawyers at the Law Office of Ruben P. Ruiz PC understand the business culture that drives Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. We have helped both international and local clients navigate the legal environment and establish a foundation for business success.
Our desire is to serve as your strategic partners for the health and growth of your business.
