If you have a lot at stake in a conflict with a business partner, current or former employee, upstart competitor or any other party, you need an adept analyst and negotiator on your side. The lawyer you choose should also be trial-proven — not only because the case may go that far, but because this leverage is often needed to compel the opposition to negotiate.

Hattiesburg business dispute attorney Michael J. Shemper honed his contract analysis and high-stakes negotiating skills as a sports agent prior to launching our respected law firm. At our firm, you can count on personal attention and clear, practical guidance from a business-savvy lawyer.
