In today's political and legal climate, business owners are at a disadvantage—despite the perception of the public that “the business of America is business” and corporations can get away with anything and everything. It's very common for the owner of even a small business to be sued by:
- State or local authorities, who claim unethical business practices or evasion of licensing laws
- Federal authorities, for perceived environmental or regulatory transgressions or failure to pay taxes
- Employees who claim workplace harassment or discrimination, or say they were injured by plant conditions
- Customers who maintain that a product is hazardous, or there was a breach of contract in providing a specific service
- Other companies in the same industry, who claim unfair competitive manufacturing or labor advantages, or the theft of trade secrets
- Pretty much anyone who wants to get a big payday, and perceives a business owner as having deeper pockets than other potential targets
