What Does a Business Litigation Lawyer Do
While we consider the circumstances of each case individually, our approach to business litigation generally follows a similar path:
- Case evaluation — looking at the details to advise the client on possible options
- Investigation — digging deeper to find out what happened, and determining an appropriate course of action
- Demand and negotiation — we approach the other side to demand a resolution, often in tandem with filing suit, giving them a chance to negotiate a settlement out of court.
- Litigating in court — if negotiations fail, we go to court to hold the other side accountable.
