Business Law

Helping Businesses Resolve Disputes And Issues

At Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., we provide the usual assistance with contracts and agreements. These contracts govern purchases, sales, business formations and a host of real estate matters.

But the heart of our business law practice is resolving disputes between your business and another party, and also between owners and partners. Recent successful litigation has involved:

  • Contract disputes
  • Disputes between partners and shareholders
  • Director and officer (D&O) liability lawsuits
  • Business dissolutions
  • Business torts
  • Business transaction litigation
  • Judgments, liens and collections
  • Commercial lease disputes
  • Employment litigation
  • Infringement of intellectual property rights


In addition, insurance defense remains an important part of our practice, as our lawyers work to set aside claims that lack merit or that ask more than is right.

North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota Oil and Gas Energy Law Issues

We have been involved in litigation involving both the oil and gas industry in western North Dakota and the growing wind energy industry across the state. This litigation covers several different issues such as:

  • Disputes relating to oilfield mineral rights ownership
  • Estate planning involving mineral rights
  • Probate clearance involving mineral rights
  • Torts arising from oilfield accidents


In matters of litigation, we walk the line between aggressively asserting your rights and keeping costs under control. We’re not afraid to take a case to trial, and sometimes that is the only way to achieve justice. But we’re not afraid to recommend a settlement, either, when it is fair and allows for full resolution of the issue.


Avoid disagreements with solid contracts. Contact the Bismarck business attorneys at Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., at 701-258-8988.
