Ms. Lang is a partner in the business litigation department. She represents clients in litigated and non-litigated complex commercial and business-related disputes, in state and federal court, both at the trial and appellate court level, such as breach of contract matters, partnership disputes, disputes involving covenants not to compete and other restrictive covenants, loan enforcement actions, construction matters, insurance disputes, regulatory matters, trusts, business torts and professional liability matters.

Representative Experience:

  • Represented large cattle ranch in the Flint Hills (Kansas) in road vacation litigation that impacted the client’s property.

  • Successfully used the alter ego doctrine to prevent parent company of client’s partner in a commercial real estate development from foreclosing on partnership loan and mortgage it acquired from lender in an effort to avoid subsidiary’s fiduciary obligations and restrictions on requiring capital contributions; limiting parent to credit for amount it paid to acquire partnership loan upon dissolution of partnership.
