Whatever problem you’re facing, having an experienced team of business litigation attorneys on your side is a vital first step to finding a solution.
Unfortunately, not all business lawyers are created equal. Most spend their time preparing their cases to settle.
At Generations Law Group, we know that while most cases settle, you will never get the full worth of your case unless your lawyer is prepared for trial.
And that is what we do: we prepare for and try cases.
What is Business Litigation?
When a business deal goes bad, the first thing you need to do is hire a business lawyer with experience in business litigation cases.
Business litigation can really run the gamut — anything from employee issues to disputes between the partners.
Common disputes that lead to litigation include:
- Intellectual Property Disputes: Intellectual property can include any of the following and more:
– Trade Secrets
When intellectual property is used without permission, you’ll want a business attorney on your side to help you through the legal process.
- Insurance Coverage Disputes: Most business owners don’t spend much time reading through insurance policy language unless there is some type of issue. Get ahead of these types of disputes by hiring an attorney who will ensure all your policies are secure — and has your back if a dispute arises.
- Breach of Contract: Businesses are constantly entering into contracts and agreements, but when those agreements are not followed, you have a serious issue on your hands. That’s why it’s important for all contracts to be well-written and reviewed by business litigation attorneys on the front end, and litigated by a trusted team of lawyers if necessary.
- Fraud Disputes: Fraud can occur for a variety of reasons, either due to deception or a mistake, and there many different types of fraud. This means that these types of dispute can span different areas of the law, so having a team of attorneys with experience in all aspects of business law is ideal.
- Non-Compete Issues: A non-compete clause is when an employee agreed not to compete with an employer (from some agreed-upon period). If an employee breaks this agreement, litigation will typically be necessary. Because the process for these issues moves fairly quickly, having a business litigation strategy in place as soon as possible is vital.
There’s no one specific field of business or type of company that deals with these issues. All industries could face these disputes.
That’s why it’s so important to have a lawyer in your corner to both help you prepare for litigation and obtain the best possible outcome for your business.
