Business Law

The attorneys at Hart Cantrell enjoy helping our business clients be as successful as possible so that they can continue to provide services to their own customers. Hart Cantrell has represented a wide range of businesses over the years, primarily in contract negotiations, real estate transactions, employment issues, and litigation. Our attorneys have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in lawsuits on a wide variety of issues. Our attorneys are mindful that business owners frequently need more than just legal advice, they need to hear different perspectives before making important decisions that will impact their businesses moving forward. Business owners generally understand that litigation is lengthy, expensive, and can cause irreparable damage to a previously successful business relationship. A good attorney should caution against litigation unless it becomes absolutely necessary, and a creative mind may help business owners find cost-effective solutions outside of litigation. Unfortunately, business owners are sometimes left with no choice but to litigate. The attorneys at Hart Cantrell have had a great deal of success in representing various businesses both in and out of the courtroom.

"Murphy Hart is an attorney who makes you feel confident: He has law experience to go along with his knowledge of real estate — and there is a lot to know because laws are always changing. Buying a house is a serious thing, and most people know nothing about it. It's good to know that Hart Cantrell is not only a title company: It's a title company and a law firm. Murphy is so accommodating and has a nice way with people, plus he comes from a long line of attorneys. I really appreciate his flexibility and his ability to talk to people." - Lynette Ing, Real Estate Agent
