Business & Commercial


Business & Commercial

  • The business and commercial litigation group at Fletcher Tilton includes a former judge with 50 years of legal experience, a member of the state judicial nominating committee, and a Boston magazine “Super Lawyer” for general litigation.
  • Years of experience provide a perspective that may keep a dispute out of court. Fletcher Tilton clients can expect swift and accurate dispute evaluations which often lead to early and favorable dispositions.
  • Our group leader lectures on business law to Chamber of Commerce members.


Experience in Many Courtrooms

Fletcher Tilton has a proud tradition of representing local, regional and national businesses in trial matters on a range of issues including management disputes, employment issues, unfair trade practices, breach of contract, shareholder disputes, commercial debts, minority shareholder claims, stockholder derivative claims, environmental and land use matters, acquisitions, business interference, and other business torts.

We also represent claimants and defendants on claims of breach of fiduciary duty including cases involving partners, trustees, guardians, executors, shareholders in closely held corporations, and corporate directors and officers.

When a business transfer occurs, we frequently represent buyers and sellers in litigation related to those transactions.

Sometimes clients choose to resolve their matters outside of a judicial forum. In these situations, we are able to guide our clients through the alternative dispute resolution process. Our attorneys are frequently asked by courts and litigants to arbitrate or mediate complex disputes outside of the trial context.

Representative cases
  • We advised a client on corporate exposure for damages resulting from paraplegia injury to a motorcyclist.
  • Fletcher Tilton attorneys represented a plaintiff in a burn injury product liability case that resulted in a seven-figure settlement.
