Protecting Businesses And Business Owners In Legal Disputes
From employee conflicts and disputes between partners to breach of contract or fraud in transactions, operating a business is fraught with legal perils.
I am James “Rusty” Tucker, a trial lawyer with more than 35 years of experience, including many notable successes in business litigation. I counsel and represent businesses and business owners in the Dallas area and statewide Texas. My clients appreciate my problem-solving and negotiating skills, and trust that if the matter escalates to the courtroom, they are in good hands with a proven litigator.
Proactive Counsel, Compliance And Troubleshooting
From my decades of trial work, I can spot the red flags in contracts and tentative business deals and anticipate the other side’s tactics. From my extensive work in fraud and whistleblower litigation, I can help business clients adhere to the law and steer clear of business practices that could lead to costly litigation or legal trouble, especially in the area of government contracting. In many cases, I can intervene in the early stages of business disputes to convince the other party to fulfill their contractual obligations, drop a meritless lawsuit against my client or negotiate a timely and reasonable resolution.
Strong Advocacy In Business And Commercial Litigation
I have successfully represented business clients in a wide range of legal conflicts, including:
- Contract disputes with customers, service providers or suppliers
- Fraud or misrepresentation in business transactions or real estate deals
- Partnership disputes and business dissolutions
- Minority shareholder actions
- Enforcement or litigation and noncompete or nondisclosure agreements
- Employment law (discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination)
- Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) violations
- Insurance bad faith, such as canceled policies or denial of business interruption claims
I welcome business owners and executives in all industries, from medical providers and service businesses to construction contractors and manufacturing companies.
I am AV–rated attorney under Martindale–Hubbell’s peer review rating system and a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an elite group of trial lawyers who have recovered million– or multimillion–dollar jury verdicts for their clients. See examples of my notable case results in business and civil litigation.
