When Business Disputes Arise

Business disputes happen. There are many things to consider when you are engaged in a dispute:

  • What are the alternatives to a lawsuit?
  • Who is the other party? Are they worth pursuing?
  • What is to be gained by prosecuting/defending?
  • What might be lost by prosecuting/defending?
  • Which court or tribunal will take your case?
  • How strong is your claim or defense?
  • What are the tangible and intangible costs to litigation?

Whenever possible, we will help you pursue negotiation, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution methods. Some cases will have to go to court.
