Whether it is through a business transaction, contract negotiation, partnership dissolution or employment issue, disputes can devastate the smooth operation of a company. A business lawsuit can be disruptive to productivity, employee morale, customer loyalty and supplier confidence. As trusted Atlanta business litigation attorneys, it is our goal to minimize the disruption you feel in your daily business while aggressively and competently representing your interests.

At Friedman, Dever & Merlin, we pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with our business clients. It is likely, even before litigation arises, that we’ve already worked with a client on business formation, entity selection or a succession plan. No matter the existing relationship or the complexity of your legal matter, however, our lawyers will thoroughly examine your situation to provide exceptional representation and clear legal direction.


Based on our decades of legal experience and our thorough understanding of business trends, we can represent clients facing a broad range of legal challenges, including:

  • Business lawsuits
  • Business divorce
  • Business owner disputes
  • Partnership lawsuits
  • Fraudulent business practices
  • Business torts
  • Contract disputes
  • Contract interference
  • Breach of contract
  • Commercial litigation
  • Wills, trusts and estate litigation
  • Real estate litigation

While it is our goal to resolve disputes in the least disruptive manner we can, it is not always possible to reach a resolution through negotiation. No matter the scope of your case, we will always thoroughly prepare as if the issue will be resolved in court. With this level of preparation, we can anticipate obstacles that we might face through the legal process.

While our main office is in Atlanta, we routinely represent clients throughout Georgia and the United States. We invite you to call or email our firm to schedule a consultation to discuss your specific matter in greater detail.


At Friedman, Dever & Merlin, we encourage you to meet with us to discuss your current and future legal needs. We encourage you to call us at 404-236-8600 or send us a confidential email to schedule your consultation with a lawyer.

Although our office is in Atlanta, we know that business happens everywhere. We are able to accommodate your company’s legal needs whether they arise in Georgia or elsewhere.
