Seasoned Attorneys for Bellingham Business Litigation

Helping clients protect their rights and resolve disputes

Business litigation can be a burden for small and medium-sized companies. But, nevertheless, it occurs all too frequently and is often necessary to protect your company’s rights. The Bellingham business litigation attorneys of Adelstein, Sharpe & Serka LLP understand the practical constraints of litigation. As seasoned litigators, we work to resolve business disputes in an expeditious and cost effective manner while still protecting our clients.

Experienced attorneys for a variety of business disputes and issues

Our business lawyers bring their more than 130 years of combined legal experience to bear on a variety of business litigation and dispute issues:

  • Breach of contract While the goal of a good business contract is to avoid conflict and promote a mutually beneficial transaction, this cannot always be the case. A Bellingham attorney can help you protect your contractual rights as a plaintiff or defend yourself against the consequences of a breach as a defendant.


  • Construction litigation Construction projects are complicated and so are the contracts that govern them. Our Bellingham business litigation lawyers have experience in the unique aspects of construction law and can provide knowledgeable legal counsel during construction disputes.
  • Alternative dispute resolution With profit margins shrinking across the board, many companies are reluctant to take up business litigation and the costs that accompany it. To address these concerns, our Bellingham business litigation attorneys maintain an extensive practice in alternative dispute resolution (ADR), allowing business clients to resolve disputes in a private setting while avoiding the expense and delay of litigation.

We understand that preserving relationships is important in business and that litigation is frequently a last resort. That is why we take a measured and practical approach to business litigation and dispute resolution, working to broker reasonable settlements when possible but remaining ready to aggressively pursue court action if necessary.
