The attorneys at Lindsey & Lacy, PC handle many types of general business litigation in addition to the specialized areas mentioned elsewhere on the website. For instance, as part of its corporate practice, Lindsey & Lacy, PC frequently drafts and/or edits all types of documents governing the relationships between corporate entities and their owners and the relationship between owners and themselves. Sometimes, disputes arise about the duties owed under these documents.
