A lawsuit! Most hard-working business owners dread the prospect of a court action. Lawsuits not only place businesses and individuals in unpleasant adversarial situations, but they draw on a company's precious resources of time and money.

Unfortunately, even the most careful entrepreneur will be in the litigation arena at one time or another. And businesses grow, litigation risks naturally rise. Pursuing legal remedies are necessary as a result of dealing with persons who committed wrongs, conducted business in an unreasonable or unlawful manner, or who just refused to live up to their contract commitments. Some disputes, however, arise as a result of simple misunderstandings, or unexpected developments in a transaction, or as the result of negligence or simple bad luck.

Our litigation attorneys understand business (and business disputes) and recognize that the diligent handling of a lawsuit must be tempered with ongoing understanding of the pressures and impact that legal actions have on company operations. Most important, our litigation attorneys are experienced in navigating businesses through litigation while still focusing on the ongoing business operations.

Efficient but effective representation when disputes arise requires the services of litigation attorneys who understand the underlying business issues that caused the lawsuit. When faced with court action, it is critical to set up a strategic plan of action from the very beginning. The plan must include active and frequent consultation with and input from our client, and the plan must be flexible in order to provide guidance during the natural twists and turns of a lawsuit.
