New Braunfels Commercial Litigation Lawyer

Commercial Litigation Attorney Serving Seguin, Comal County, and South Central Texas

Many owners fear commercial litigation because they see it as an unnecessary drain on resources. As a result, the settle cases quickly almost regardless of the short or long-term costs, just to "get it over with." The reality is that business litigation is an investment just like any other, and litigation often puts your business in a position to be even more successful in the future. Moreover, an effective attorney can greatly minimize the negative fallout from these matters, or perhaps even eliminate it altogether.

In our experience, there are essentially two very legitimate approaches to commercial litigation in South Central Texas. Some owners prefer a turnkey approach where the attorneys work independently while others seek a more collaborative approach to legal problem-solving. At The Bettersworth Law Firm, you do not adapt to our style; we adapt to yours. Regardless of the approach, we are committed to cost-effective solutions for you, your family, and your business.

Employment Litigation

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission aggressively seeks out and prosecutes businesses that run afoul of federal laws when hiring workers, during their term of employment, and upon their termination. Some of these laws include:

  • Pregnancy Discrimination Act,
  • Americans with Disabilities Act,
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Additionally, these laws are continually expanding in the way that the EEOC and federal courts apply and enforce them. At the same time, the National Labor Relations Board is a largely pro-worker administrative agency that is almost constantly looking for opportunities to restrict the legal and financial rights of both managers and employers. The NLRB also has a multi-layer bureaucracy, with a regional administrative law judge in San Antonio and two other Texas cities. The ALJ's decisions may be appealed to the full NLRB in Washington, D.C.


While it is possible for a vendor, supplier, or contractor to move into and out of bankruptcy with little or no effect on its day-to-day operations, a business bankruptcy often creates significant issues with regard to delivery and payment. The bankruptcy trustees also have broad powers to take actions they believe to be in the best interests of some creditors.

In other situations, your business may want to take advantage of the legal protections that Chapter 11 offers in terms of restructuring business operations and ending unprofitable financial arrangements.

Oil and Gas

Mining rights are a significant issue for both landowners and business owners in South Central Texas. We provide a full range of service in this area, including disputes over:

  • Cost distribution,
  • Pricing,
  • Royalty calculation,
  • Working interests,
  • Surface damage,
  • Termination of operations, and
  • Oilfield service workers and contracts.

While we always strive to solve these disputes through negotiation, we do not hesitate to go to arbitration or trial to protect our clients' interests.
