Litigation likely is the last thing you want to face in your business. However, if you are sued or need to sue others, I can help.
Few things can be more disruptive than facing a lawsuit. Business litigation can take many forms. Have you been sued by your partners? By employees? By third parties? What are the issues in the case? Are you adequately covered by your insurer? Will your insurer provide you a legal defense? Will you require separate counsel to protect your interests? What steps will you need to take to protect yourself? How costly will the process be?
It is often less costly to seek mediation or arbitration to resolve the lawsuit. Is your dispute suitable for mediation or arbitration? If so, how do you secure the consent of the other parties? How do you select a mediator or arbitrator? What will the ground rules be in either event? Even if mediation and arbitration appear unlikely, is direct negotiation likely to be productive? Even as you prepare your defense, you should also pursue options for settlement. Thorough preparation of your case typically provides a stronger basis for a favorable settlement.
Do you need to bring a lawsuit to protect your business interests? Have you reached an impasse with your partners? Has a current or former employee violated the terms of an employment agreement? Is a third party engaged in unfair or illegal practices having an adverse impact on your business? You will need to weigh the pros and cons of litigation very carefully before you take any action. Litigation is not only costly, but also uncertain. You need to know your options before seeking judicial relief. I can help define your options; I also can pursue litigation on your behalf.
