You may wonder if you need a lawyer to handle your business litigation and what the benefits of hiring one are. It can help to have someone on your side who will protect your business during legal disputes, especially if one rises to the severity of going to court.
How Our Team Can Help
The business litigation attorneys at our firm know how the laws work in your state and can help you with:
- Regulatory concerns
- Insurance claims
- Employment concerns
- Other business issues
Legal disputes can pop up in any industry. Even small businesses and sole proprietorships often face complex legal concerns. Not all of them require litigation. There are often options for settling a dispute and reaching an agreement without involving the courts.
When litigation is necessary, you will want an attorney who is well-versed in these cases and understands your company’s unique needs. Our firm can help in both scenarios.
Business Litigation Can Be a Costly Process
Even the smallest businesses in seemingly uncontroversial industries face disputes. Whether the disagreement erupts between partners, the business and a customer, or with a supplier or employee, it can:
- Lead to stress and frustration
- Cost you thousands of dollars
- Distract you from your focus on your company
In some cases, business owners do not believe they need a lawyer to handle their business litigation because they feel it is not a big deal or believe the situation will resolve itself. However, even a baseless civil lawsuit can quickly become expensive and time-consuming without the help of an attorney who knows how to navigate this process. Our firm wants to protect your business and your rights.
The Role of an Attorney in Your Business Litigation
Having a lawyer on your side from the beginning of a dispute could help you find a way to settle the disagreement sooner, possibly avoiding litigation altogether. This may help you save money in the long run and allow you to put it behind you much sooner.
Our firm could offer you options for resolving your dispute outside of the courtroom if you enlist our help early enough. This may involve negotiations, mediation, arbitration, or other dispute resolution techniques.
Not only can we handle your legal case, but our team can also play a crucial role in protecting the best interests of your business. We may be able to save you time and money, resolve your disagreement before it hits the media, and keep your records private by keeping the case out of court.
Common Types of Business Disputes and Litigation
One reason why business disputes are so common is that many moving parts must work together to keep a business running. For example, partners hire employees and work with vendors for day-to-day operations. Some industries have a number of regulatory concerns to be aware of, such as Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules. In any business with a storefront, a customer could suffer injuries while visiting.
Any of these situations can lead to litigation. Some common types of business disputes include:
- Contract disputes with vendors
- Employment disputes
- Regulatory concerns
- Intellectual property cases
- Breach of fiduciary duty accusations
- Insurance disagreements
- Partnership disputes
- Buying or selling of assets
- Disagreements between shareholders
- Civil torts
- Defamation suits
- Real estate transactions
Our business law attorneys also handle much more mundane but necessary tasks for clients. This could include creating and reviewing contracts, drawing up paperwork for major transactions, and ensuring you meet all regulatory deadlines.
