When partners in business decide to separate, mergers and acquisitions fail, contracts are not honored, a competitor steals your employees along with your customer list, or other problems occur in the corporate world, we have the experience our clients need to resolve the problem. When business disputes arise, litigation may be the only way to remedy the situation. Our litigators have experience in state, federal and appellate courts litigating business disputes. However, we do not automatically pull the litigation trigger in every business dispute. The decision to file a lawsuit must involve a business decision, which we help you to consider. We help you consider the cost of litigation with the likely outcome so that an informed cost-benefit business decision can be made. Going to trial is what we do, but to save our clients the expense of a lawsuit, negotiation, mediation, and arbitration are considered as cost effective alternatives to the trial of a business dispute. Too often, attorneys disregard the long term effects that lawsuits have on a business relationship. A creative solution, rather than a lawsuit, may be the best answer to a legal problem. For example, if a key customer owes you money, we look for a way to get your money, and keep your client happy. Similarly, if you owe a vendor money, but you are having trouble paying, we try to structure a resolution that keeps you in business, and prevents your vendor from pursuing collection methods that would do permanent harm to your business.
