How Ashcraft & Gerel Can Serve You
Over the years, we have effectively represented individuals, fighting to protect their businesses’ best interests.
Our commercial litigation team represents business owners who find themselves in trade disputes involving:

When you sign a contract with another party, you are both declaring to uphold your end of the agreement. In a way, the contract is designed to prevent disputes and avoid litigation. Some disputes, however, are inevitable.
When contract-related disputes arise, be sure to retain competent legal representation. At Ashcraft & Gerel, we frequently handle commercial claims that have serious implications for our clients. We take our responsibility to our clients seriously and work tirelessly to ensure that the results we achieve reflect their needs.
In a recent case involving a contract dispute, Attorney L. Palmer Foret took on Chevron and Unocal, a Chevron subsidiary. Chevron has failed to pay our client, a small business, a service fee owed per a contract. We helped prove Chevron’s contract breach and restore justice for our client.
