Commercial Litigation and Transactions

Commercial Litigation and…

A fixture in the Springdale community for over 75 years, Crouch, Harwell, Fryar & Ferner, PLLC, has a vested interest in the success of local businesses. During our decades of practice, we've developed a deep knowledge of Arkansas commercial law and of the day-to-day workings and needs of our clients' companies.

It's our ambition to be not just the firm that local businesses call when they need a transaction or lawsuit handled, but true partners in the growth of their companies. The life of a successful business involves many transactions, legal strategizing, and inevitable litigation. We are proud to offer our clients the support they need though all of their legal concerns.

Managing Risk and Maximizing Benefit in Transactions

Crouch, Harwell, Fryar & Ferner, PLLC, has the breadth and depth of business knowledge to serve as general counsel to companies for which it is impractical to maintain in-house counsel. We counsel our clients regarding the long- and short-term implications of various dealings, negotiate agreements with favorable terms, and draft and review documents to avoid exposure to liability. Among the many matters with which we help our business clients are:

  • Negotiation, drafting, and review of contracts
  • Stock and asset purchase agreements
  • Leases of equipment and real estate
  • Mortgages and deeds
  • Employment agreements
  • Commercial lending transactions

We believe that attention to detail and clear language in transactional work prevents the need for litigation to interpret terms down the line. Our attorneys focus on conserving our clients' resources and avoiding needless litigation whenever possible. However, when litigation is called for, we have the legal knowledge and courtroom experience to be the effective advocates our clients expect.

Pursuing Rights and Defending Interests through Litigation

Litigation can be time-consuming and expensive, but sometimes it is the only way to advance a client's interests or defend against liability. When litigation is necessary, Crouch, Harwell, Fryar & Ferner, PLLC, prepares each case with meticulous attention to detail. This serves the dual purpose of positioning our client advantageously for a possible settlement and allowing us to advocate effectively at trial if an acceptable settlement cannot be reached. We handle all types of commercial litigation matters, including:

  • Construction projects and delays
  • Eminent domain/condemnation
  • Breach of lease
  • Breach of contract
  • Debt collection
  • Employment disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Shareholder disputes

Whether at the bargaining table or in the courtroom, our focus is the same: lifting legal concerns from our clients' shoulders and protecting their interests so they can remain focused on the success of their businesses.
