The Litigation Process
The civil courts exist to resolve legal disputes between various parties. While it is usually possible to avoid the courtroom by negotiating with the other party, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit or ‘tort’ and bring the matter before a judge and jury. This is called litigation, and our lawyers have experience arguing business and commercial cases on either side: with the defendant and with the plaintiff.
Examples of Business and Commercial Disputes in Which Litigation May be Necessary
Unfortunately the list of what can potentially go wrong when running your own business is never ending. Below are a few scenarios in which filing a claim or defending against a claim may be necessary. If out-of-court negotiations fail, the next step may be filling or defending against a lawsuit in court.
- Partner violates their fiduciary duty by mismanaging large sums of company money
- Employee makes an allegation of unlawful termination
- Employee violate the non-compete clause in their employment contract
- Another business stole your intellectual property
- The property owner your business rents space from is refusing to make necessary repairs
- Vendor failed to deliver, breaching a contract
What Types of Litigator Do I Need?
Whether you are a business involved in a dispute with another business, an employee, or another individual party, or you are an employee or individual involved in a dispute with a business, the type of lawyer you should seek is called a business litigator or a commercial litigator. Commercial and business, in this regard, are used interchangeably; they mean the same thing. While most business/commercial disputes are resolved outside of the courtroom, many of which do not even require a lawsuit or tort, there are cases in which litigation—the process of resolving the lawsuit in civil court—is necessary. Not all attorneys have courtroom experience. It is essential that your lawyer has a proven and successful history litigating the type of case you are bringing or defending against.
