Areas of Practice
General civil trial
Civil litigation is not just an area of our practice — it is an area of considerable success on behalf of our clients. You may need to bring suit for theft of trade secrets, to protect an easement to your property, or to enforce an insurance contract after Hurricane Harvey. The Oliver Law Firm can help.
Business entity formation and maintenance
Whether you want to start a new business or make changes to your current entity with buy/sell provisions, changes to management and voting provisions, or take advantage of changes to the tax law, we can help. Today's corporate management requires effective legal advice and representation to stay competitive. Having an advisor who has not only drafted bylaws and company agreements, but has also tried lawsuits about the provisions in them will give you a significant advantage.
Fiduciary Duty Litigation
Whether as a corporate officer or director, a trustee, or a trusted advisor, there may be a fiduciary duty owed to others. Referred to as the "highest duty in the law," fiduciary duty arises in many of our cases. The Texas Supreme Court has significantly changed the law in the business context. Is it an issue for your case? We can help you to understand the duty and how it may affect your claim or defense.
Estate and Probate Litigation
The disposition of estates and contested wills and guardianships can sometimes get messy. Family interests can get complicated. We understand what you are going through, having counseled many families in your same situation. The Oliver Law Firm can provide sound legal representation during such trying times.
Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights
Bankruptcy law can wreak havoc on business contracts, as well as equity investments and debt. At the Oliver Law Firm, our philosophy is that to be a complete business lawyer, one has to understand the Bankruptcy Code and how it is applied by the courts. Having counseled our clients through thirty-five years of business cycles, we have the ability and experience to advise you and your business about bankruptcy issues.
Oil and Gas
From title disputes to failed blow out preventers, we have tried many oil and gas cases. We recently won an Eagle Ford title dispute at the trial court on summary judgment and again in the Fourth Court of Appeals (Billy C. Whitfield and Carolyn Whitfield v. Charles Thomas Ondrej, et al.).
Real Estate Litigation and Transactions
The sale, lease, and financing of real estate can get complicated quickly. Having closed real estate purchases and financing transactions totaling in the hundreds of millions, the Oliver Law Firm has the experience to assist in your transaction or your business controversy involving real estate. Have the Oliver Law Firm protect and defend your interests.
The best contracts are those that cannot easily be contested. They are rock-solid and complete. And, more importantly, they protect your business interests. We have significant skill and experience in crafting and negotiating business instruments that will protect your best interests. We have not only drafted these documents; we have experienced how the provisions hold up in court.
