Whether you are purchasing a new building, hiring independent contractors, or defending your company after an onsite accident, you have the option to hire legal representation to help resolve the issue.
Disputes occur in businesses of every size. No matter your industry, a business dispute can escalate and cause frustrations that affect your company’s productivity and growth.
Having a Business Law Attorney on Your Side Helps You Remain Focused on Your Company
Many business disagreements and legal actions you may need to navigate are complex and rely on complicated legal documents to lay the groundwork. Working with an attorney can help you focus on your business’s day-to-day productivity while also exploring your legal options.
Having legal representation on your side protects your legal rights during a business dispute. Even if the case does not go to court, your lawyer will provide help understanding contracts and other legal documents, explaining the applicable laws, and weighing your options with you.
They may also be able to help with:
- Negotiation of an agreement
- Other dispute resolution techniques
Facing even a frivolous civil claim or a false allegation could become a serious legal challenge if the accuser has a strong legal team and you try to handle your case on your own.
Your Case May Need to Go to Trial
While many disputes can reach a favorable agreement outside of court, some disputes require litigation. There are many good options for settling disputes without going to trial and reaching an agreement, but litigation is sometimes necessary.
A business attorney with our firm can represent you in your case by:
- Preparing and filing paperwork
- Attending court hearings
- Gathering evidence, conducting interviews under oath, and taking other steps to build a case
- Negotiating with the other side, when possible
- Keeping you updated about what is going on
- Shouldering as much of the burden of your legal case as possible, allowing you to focus on running your company
The kinds of cases that begin as disputes and elevate to the level of litigation could include:
- Contract disputes
- Intellectual property claims
- Regulatory issues
- Insurance claims or civil matters
- Partnership disputes
Do Not Delay When Experiencing Small Disputes
The longer a disagreement goes on, the more time an adversarial attitude has to grow between the parties involved. This can make it more difficult to reach an agreement on your own. When you begin to experience a series of small disputes, take action immediately.
If you cannot resolve a dispute on your own and you believe it will only worsen, you can work with us to explore your legal options.
