When misconduct and illegal actions put someone else’s business at stake, we take it personally. The nation’s economy was built by hard-working business owners, entrepreneurs, and people who made a living by taking risks and earning money the right way. No one deserves to have their success unfairly upended. When people’s livelihoods are at stake, we do everything we can to make it right. No matter what.
Building Cases Against the Biggest Commercial Defendants in the Nation
When commercial transactions go wrong, when massive companies commit fraud or unethical practices, or when commercial entities wrong our clients in any way, they call Arnold & Itkin. Our firm is a relentless advocate for people or businesses that have been unfairly or wrongfully treated. As a result, we’ve secured over $10 billion for our clients—helping them recover from enormous financial setbacks.
Our firm has extensive experience handling all commercial issues, including:
- Contract law
- Construction defects
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Oil and gas disputes
- Overtime violations
- Partnership disputes
- Securities fraud
We prepare every case as if it's going to trial. We consult experts, depose witnesses, and demand information from the individuals, companies, and professionals who harmed our clients. Then we bring it all together, using innovative techniques to clarify complex problems before judges, juries, and arbitration panels. This gives us a position of strength at the negotiating table and allows us to win in the courtroom if a fair settlement cannot be reached. No matter how big our opponent or how outnumbered our team may be, we pour everything we have into winning. No matter what.
“I really feel like Arnold & Itkin brought justice to my family. Not only my family but many other families. It was just unreal how tirelessly they worked.” Terry Yount Father of Risperdal Victim
The relationships that we form with our clients never fade. When you’ve spent months getting to know a client, hearing their life story and what drives them, it makes their case personal. It makes winning a non-negotiable, like we’re fighting for a family member. From helping our clients get back on their feet to helping them get justice for illegal or negligent conduct, we’re by their side at every step. No matter what.
You might be facing a wealthy competitor or a multinational corporation. That doesn’t scare us. In fact, the bigger the fight, the better. We’ve beaten the likes of British Petroleum, Johnson & Johnson, Exxon, UPS, and other billion-dollar corporations in court. We know what it takes to bring down a giant, and we’ll give your case everything we’ve got to make sure we do it again. No matter what.

Can I Sue When a Business Interferes with My Clients?Yes, by filing a tortious interference suit. Tortious interference with contracts includes cases where a defendant intentionally causes a client of yours to breach a contract or become unable to fulfill their obligations under a contract. Tortious interference with business relations includes cases where the defendant engages in wrongful conduct (e.g. defamation) that results in losses to the business.
Can I Sue a Financial Advisor?If a financial advisor mismanaged your money through poor investments or deception, you may be able to sue them for financial malpractice. The law provides for the ability to seek damages against financial advisors for breach of fiduciary duty, misrepresentation, securities fraud, or deceptive trade practices.
Can I Sue for Breach of Verbal Contract?While written contracts are easier to enforce, verbal contracts can still be legally binding in some cases. Contracts that must be in writing (under Texas law) include real estate transactions and leases or commissions for oil and gas drilling. Outside of those areas, verbal contracts can be enforced, which means you can sue for a breach.
What’s a Complex Business Dispute?Complex business disputes arise from litigating two different types of commercial situations: when multiple parties are involved in a dispute (e.g. shareholders, officers, board members, and subcontractors), or when litigation must take place in multiple venues (i.e. state and federal court). These cases are highly technical and require a great deal of skill to resolve in your favor.
