Scott Speier has extensive experience in a wide range of matters (both litigation and non-litigation) involving commercial disputes. Our areas of practice include:

  • • Business and commercial litigation
  • • Shareholder/partnership disputes
  • • Business liability and business tort litigation
  • • Complex commercial litigation
  • • Breach of confidentiality agreements
  • • Construction law and construction law litigation
  • • Contract and lease disputes, and contract litigation
  • • Corporate liability and litigation
  • • Breach of warranty
  • • Business torts
  • • Commission disputes
  • • Non-compete agreements

Since commercial disputes can oftentimes mean the difference between a profit and/or loss on a particular project, we strive to provide high-quality cost-effective service for our clients. To this end, we seek to resolve our clients' disputes not only by litigation, but through pre-litigation negotiation and by the use of alternative dispute resolution processes, such as nonbinding facilitation, mediation and binding arbitration.

We pride ourselves on providing strategic and creative advice to our clients and having the tactical skills to achieve our clients' objectives. We understand the fundamental business concerns intrinsic in our clients' litigation and we work with our clients, addressing business concerns, weighing cost, risks, and benefits of litigation. We also understand that litigation is at times unavoidable in the commercial setting and is an alternative method of "negotiation." Yet, through it all, we understand and appreciate the need for cost management and seek to conclude such matters as efficiently as possible.

Our drive for excellence means that our business litigation clients' rights are protected through all phases of a legal matter; and in all aspects of our commercial litigation practice, we place a high priority on determined advocacy, clear communications, and good business practices. We prepare each and every case as if it were going to court, despite the fact that the great majority of our clients’ commercial litigation cases are settled outside of court. Our clients’ opponents know that we are prepared to take a dispute as far as it needs to go – through negotiations, arbitration, or courtroom litigation – to get a fair resolution for businesses that we represent.

Businesses represented by The Speier Law Firm, LLC are always kept informed of the progress and status of their cases. Unpleasant surprises are avoided through our policy of open communication and accessibility. We let our clients know what we are doing at all times. As is appropriate, we advise them on how we are containing their costs without sacrificing the quality of our personalized representation. Our clients appreciate the attention we give to avoiding unnecessary litigation expenses.

When it comes to resolving business disputes, we have the experience you need. The Speier Law Firm, LLC has a track record handling general commercial and construction litigation. In fact, in addition to his "niche" practice in plaintiff's personal injury and real estate, Scott Speier has represented businesses and individuals in the prosecution, defense and collection of claims for breach of contract, conversion, breach of fiduciary duty, purchase and sale agreements, leases, service agreements, non-competition clauses, fraud, construction accidents, construction defects, real estate disputes and many other business-related matters. These claims often involve battles between two or more corporations, partnerships or limited liability companies; but they often also include claims and defenses of individuals, closely-held companies, family partnerships and sole proprietors. The Speier Law Firm, LLC also assists other lawyers and law firms in Maryland and other states in commercial litigation matters when they encounter "conflicts of interest" or require "local counsel."

The Speier Law Firm, LLC represents both plaintiffs and defendants in these matters, usually on an hourly fee basis, depending on the nature, urgency and anticipated duration of the engagement.
