If you own a small business, chances are that at some point you will be sued or will want to file a lawsuit against someone in your own company, a past employee, vendor, business partner, or someone you currently do business with.
If you are considering bringing a suit against someone, you may want to talk with a business litigation attorney first. A business litigation lawyer also can be referred to as a business trial lawyer, commercial litigation lawyer, breach of contract litigation attorney or business attorney. No matter what you call a lawyer in this field, one thing is certain – your business is too important to not talk with an attorney who has experience in business litigation lawsuits.
First Step: Contact a business litigation lawyer to perform an assessment of your case. You need to contact a trial lawyer to make sure you are getting the best advice regarding your case. A business attorney will review your potential case and make an assessment after reviewing the important documents and talking over the specifics of your case with you.
During this discussion, you should voice your objectives and find out what method and strategy the attorney and his law firm will use. Make sure that you are comfortable with how the attorney is going to handle your case before hiring him. Additionally, your first appointment to review your potential case should be a free legal consultation.
Second Step: Ask the attorney what the advantages and disadvantages of business litigation are in your case. The business litigation lawyer should explain the disadvantages of business litigation as well as the advantages. Feel free to take notes during your conversation.
Basic disadvantages would include costs, time, countersuits and the potential for loss of privacy. However, the advantages could include financial gain or injunctive relief.
