Common questions About Business Litigation

If your company is facing a lawsuit or contract dispute, you will want to do everything necessary to protect yourself and your business. However, business litigation can be very complex and, thus, it is important to contact an experienced business attorney should such a dispute arise. To help you make an informed decision, here are some answers to common questions about business litigation:


How Can Contract Disputes be Resolved?

In some cases, contract disputes do not have to go to court and can be resolved through mediation, negotiation, and/or arbitration. These avenues of alternative dispute resolution give you the opportunity to avoid incurring the costs associated with litigating in court and enable you and your counterpart to find a solution that works for all parties involved. A skilled business attorney will often be able to help you negotiate and resolve such issues and disputes.


How Do I Handle a Class-Action Lawsuit?


Since a lawsuit of this nature can garner significant headlines and result in negative publicity for your business, you should always let a business attorney handle the defense of a class-action lawsuit brought against your business. A skilled business attorney can explain the various legal options and advise you as to the best course of action.


Do I Need Legal Counsel for Internal Company Disputes?


Simply put, yes! While it is always the goal to resolve disputes amicably, there are situations where partners or co-owners cannot agree on crucial matters related to corporate governance. When this occurs, you should always seek out an attorney for professional advice.


Should My Company File a Lawsuit?


If your company’s business interests have been harmed by individuals or a specific company, a lawsuit may be needed to stop the other party’s actions or to collect the damages suffered by your company. When such a situation arises, it is always best to seek legal advice as soon as possible so that you can be fully advised of your legal rights, remedies, and potential liabilities. Moreover, a skilled attorney may be able to help you avoid costly litigation.


What If My Company is Accused of Unfair Trade Practices?


These allegations, even if false, carry serious consequences for your business. As such, it is vital that your company put forth a strong defense by hiring a skilled business attorney to defend your business against such claims and to prevent such accusations from tarnishing your business’s reputation.
