Whether the case involves claims of inadequate warnings, design or manufacturing defects, or breach of warranty, we have represented companies of all types and sizes from local distributors to Fortune 500 corporations. We have handled cases throughout Texas, acting as local, regional and trial counsel, and handling defects relating to a wide variety of products. We have extensive experience in both state and federal courts, in trials and on appeals, working both directly for manufacturers and distributors and as local counsel in conjunction with national counsel. Our national clients especially appreciate our knowledge and understanding of some of South Texas's "unique" venues, often described as the legal version of the "Wild West". Our extensive experience in product liability includes cases involving automobiles, motorcycles, ATV's, children's products including child seats, recreational vehicles and asbestos.
Insurance Defense & First-Party Litigation
With experience gained at the leading Texas insurance defense firms, Avey & Associates can handle all aspects of third-party and first-party disputes. From representing insureds in liability claims to insurance carriers in bad faith cases, we have experience throughout the industry. We have handled claims in various lines of insurance including automobile, property & casualty, commercial, excess, E&O and directors and officers for large corporations. We work with our clients to resolve claims quickly, avoiding or limiting monetary payout and keeping costs and fees down. However, we understand the importance of operating from a position of strength. By preparing every case for the possibility of trial, we will send a clear message to the plaintiff's counsel: Be reasonable, or be ready for trial.
Business & Commercial Litigation
In a competitive business environment, broken contracts or failure to pay for goods and services can prevent a business from succeeding. An effective legal advisor can mean the difference between commercial success and failure. We offer efficient, cost-effective handling of contract disputes and other business lawsuits. We have extensive experience in handling cases involving breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, employment issues, breach of fiduciary duties, deceptive trade practices and collection disputes. This experience has taken us to venues ranging from State and Federal Courts to International Arbitrations in Europe. No business dispute is too small or too big for Avey & Associates.
Equipped with a detailed knowledge of state and federal laws governing employer/employee relationships -- and of the specific issues affecting technology and health-care related businesses -- Avey & Associates is exceptionally well-suited to protect you in employment law litigation. We assist businesses and individuals with employment litigation and employment disputes. We provide experienced employment litigation services and legal advice to employers and employees throughout Texas. We can assist you with negotiating, drafting, reviewing or litigating an employment contract or separation / termination agreement. We also have extensive experience with issues that govern the enforceability of non-compete clauses in employment and termination agreements.
Information & Technology Litigation
In today's fast-paced and competitive business world, the importance of technology cannot be overstated. We recognize that businesses and employers rely heavily, and oftentimes exclusively, on the Internet and technology to operate their business. Matters involving technology, such as software contracts and disputes, require the assistance of attorneys who are aggressive and technology savvy. With a practice focused on the business of our clients, we are experienced in helping our clients deal effectively and efficiently with all aspects of digital business enterprise, including computer and software technology, the Internet, e-commerce, data integrity and protection of proprietary information. Examples of our work in this field include successfully representing a global software developer in an international arbitration involving a software license dispute and trying a case in San Antonio for a local inventor in a dispute over intellectual property rights.
