Commercial/Business Litigation

Commercial/Business Litigation

Estes Thorne & Carr’s Commercial/Business Litigation practice is top-notch. In 2017, Dawn Estes and Carol Payne were named as Top 100 Lawyers in DFW and Top 50 Women Lawyers in the State of Texas by Texas Super Lawyers/Thomson Reuters.  Oh yes, and we have two Texas Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars by Thomson Reuters working in this group, Katie Anand and Terah Moxley.

While we are proud of our accolades, we are most proud of our client service and our ability to win.  We thrive when working collaboratively as a team with in-house counsel, and we believe that any win is a win for the entire team. We also make it a point to listen and understand the people involved and what motivates them.

Our legal strategy is not one size fits all; it is determined by your circumstances; your goals.  In many instances, we’re able to avoid the courtroom and secure favorable settlements for our clients without the need for litigation. But we believe the only way to do that is to be willing, ready, and able to go to trial.  And when that becomes necessary, we will wrestle it to the ground.

Our firm has decades of experience with business disputes of all shapes and sizes. Here are some examples:

  • Contract disputes
  • Business break-ups
  • Fraud and claims of misrepresentation
  • Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act
  • Temporary Restraining Orders and Injunctions
  • Negligence
