How Do Business Disputes Arise in Texas?

Find the right Business Disputes attorney in Pasadena, TX

Business disputes in Texas often happen in many different areas. Frequently businesses disagree on the exact terms of prior contracts or arrangements. Also, billing issues and property matters can give rise to disagreements in the business setting.

What to Do in a Business Dispute?

If a business dispute should happen in Pasadena, Texas, you should review any documents that are relevant to the disagreement, especially contracts. These documents might have clauses that must be followed when considering how to resolve the dispute. Not all contracts have dispute resolution clauses, of course, and occasionally neither business has any documents relevant to the dispute at all. If that is the case, a court might be needed to resolve the dispute. Texas courts may use legal principles to determine the outcome when the parties have not agreed beforehand about how to handle a dispute. In so doing, they look carefully to a specific case to discover the best resolution for all involved. Each state has different business laws about dispute resolution and contract law. An lawyer practicing in Pasadena can help you handle your dispute in accordance with the applicable Texas laws. Discussion with the other business about how to resolve the dispute might also proceed more smoothly under the direction of an attorney, avoiding the need to go to court.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Sometimes contracts themselves require that disputes under them be resolved outside of court. Methods of conflict resolution of this form are called Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR. ADR includes Mediation, Arbitration and sometimes a combination of the two. ADR makes going to court unnecessary, because it is designed to reach the same result that a court would have. Still, some methods of ADR entail their own formal procedures, most enlisting a third party to determine a dispute based on local law just as a judge would do. If ADR is to be used in resolving your dispute, an attorney in Pasadena familiar with ADR procedures can help you develop your case.

Life in Pasadena

Pasadena, Texas is a city in Harris County. It is the second-largest city in Harris County, and the 15th largest city in Texas.

Before Europeans settled the area now known as Pasadena, several different Native American tribes lived there for thousands of years. Some of the final battles of the Texas Revolution, which resulted in Texas gaining independence from Mexico and becoming (for about ten years) its own country, were fought in the area now occupied by Pasadena. The 1900 hurricane that destroyed Galvaston also damaged Pasadena, but it resulted in a large influx of refugees into Pasadena, some of whom decided to stay. This led to a permanent population increase.

Modernly, Pasadena is home to one of the largest chemical processing complexes in the United States. It is called the Bayport Industrial District, and it is a crucial source of jobs in Pasadena, Texas. It is also home to a major shipping center, which is rapidly expanding the city's economic base.
