Litigation Services

Our clients are risk takers by nature. They invest in volatile and competitive markets which sometimes engage them into high-risk business disputes and imminent litigation. We understand that resolution of complex lawsuits, arbitrations and other actions demand competent counsel. We pride ourselves on the ability to handle complex matters leading them to a quick and efficient resolution. Most importantly, we always guide our clients to make sound business decisions at all times and phases of litigation.

We work with publicly and privately held enterprises on a diverse range of business needs. We counsel clients on issues and disputes arising out of the purchase or sale of a business, contracts, and accounts receivables.

Corporate Dispute Resolution Services

Litigation is often a lengthy and costly process. Many times it takes only one lawsuit to drain a small healthy business and turn it upside down. At Bhakta & Associates we provide a quick and easy alternative to resolving disputes through private mediation and arbitration. Whether the dispute is internal, between members and partners, or external with other businesses, corporate dispute resolutions are a cost efficient way to resolve or get a fresh perspective on resolving a matter.

Wills/Trusts Services

Our clients work hard to provide financially strong futures for their children and families. Accordingly, we have made it our job to make sure we provide our clients with the appropriate estate planning tools to protect their assets and financial interests. At Bhakta & Associates we offer all of the following estate planning services:

  • wills
  • living trusts
  • durable power of attorney
