What is civil litigation?

Civil litigation here in Texas are claims that don’t involve criminal offenses. They can encompass anything from business matters (like contract disputes, company formation, trade secrets) to things like civil rights and discrimination issues. It’s crucial to have experience counsel on your side in a civil case, as often the outcome of these cases can have a huge impact on your or your company’s future. The team at Grable Grimshaw is experienced, confident, and ready to help.

What types of civil litigation does your San Antonio firm handle?

When we take a case, the first thing we do is evaluate every angle and find the most suitable approach to fit our client’s needs. Sometimes that approach is simple. Other times, it requires novel concepts that have the ability to change laws. Our civil litigation attorneys successfully represent individuals, small businesses, and Fortune 500 companies in San Antonio in a wide variety of matters involving:

Breach of contract

A breach of contract, or contract dispute, typically occurs when one party fails to fulfill their part of an agreed contract, and the other party suffers economic loss as a result. Often, one party’s failure to fulfill a contract interferes with the other’s ability to fulfill their duties, which is when these disputes arise. Our attorneys can investigate your claim to discover if the terms of your contract were violated and work to secure a remedy on your behalf.

Employment disputes

Our San Antonio employment dispute attorneys provide help to employees whose rights are violated on the job. We can help with matters ranging from civil rights violations and discrimination matters to Fair Labor Standards Act violations. Grable Grimshaw also represents employees facing issues like sexual harassment, wage and hour disputes, wrongful termination, whistleblower actions, and retaliation. Talk to us today to find out how we can advocate for you.

Unfair and deceptive trade practices

It’s important to be aware of your rights and liabilities when conducting business. Unfair or deceptive acts in trade or commerce are against the law, and this language encompasses a variety of practices. These acts usually occur when a seller deceives or behaves unfairly toward a buyer, which can include false advertising, deceptive pricing, and breach of contract or warranty.


Fraud differs from something like breach of contract because it requires an intent to deceive, typically involving knowledge of misrepresentation or concealment of fact. Anyone from an individual consumer to a Fortune 500 corporation can be the victim of fraud. Our lawyers can investigate and assist with fraud claims.

Business formation

Our attorneys can also help you through the complex legal process of forming a commercial enterprise. We provide legal guidance on organizing business structures like incorporations, partnerships, proprietorships, LLCs, LLPs, and other types of companies. We also offer assistance in contracts, purchase, sale, and succession agreements.

Real estate disputes

This type of litigation arises from disputes surrounding property, like land, residential, or commercial spaces. Real estate is extremely valuable and contract disputes are common, especially among landlords and tenants, buyers and sellers, or among joint owners. Our legal team can help you sort things out and come to a favorable outcome.

Insurance disputes

When you take out an insurance policy, whether an individual or a business, you do so with the understanding that the insurance company will act in good faith when it’s time to file a claim. However, sometimes these companies fail to follow through on their obligations. They may wrongly deny a claim, fail to thoroughly investigate a claim, delay a claim, or refuse to make a reasonable settlement offer. We can help.

Civil rights violations

The attorneys at Grable Grimshaw also handle civil rights cases, those rights guaranteed by the government. These include your right to be free of discrimination, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, physical ability, and religion. Our legal team can also help in cases of police misconduct, unlawful arrest, abuse of power, and excessive force. Call us today.

Consumer disputes

Federal and Texas laws protect consumers from things like deceptive trade practices, false advertising, shoddy and dangerous products, and warranty or contract misrepresentation. Our legal team assists consumers in securing relief and damages when they suffer losses due to misleading terms or other unfair business practices.
