What Is a Business Litigation Law Firm?

A business litigation law firm could become an important component of addressing arising disputes that affect your business. Business litigation can be extremely costly and can pull focus from your most important tasks, such as running your business. It is imperative to have the support of an experienced attorney when you have been named in a business litigation case or when a conflict has escalated to the point of requiring litigation to resolve it. 

Involvement in business litigation can take a business owner’s focus away from the company, but it can also serve as a serious threat to company resources. 

Whether it’s a breach of contract allegation against a vendor or a partnership that’s in the midst of dissolving, previously solid business relationships can erode quickly when litigation is on the horizon. It can be hard to come to terms with the fact that your case might have to go to court, but there are some situations where you need a firm and final resolution. Knowing a business litigation law firm you can contact in the midst of one of the most challenging aspects of your life makes a world of difference in moving forward so that you can entrust your lawyer to handle the key aspects of your claim. 

Reasons to Get Help Early on with a Business Litigation Case 

Engaging the right lawyer can make a big difference in the outcome of the case and in your confidence and ability to handle the stress associated with business litigation. Litigators are those licensed attorneys who practice within a legal specialty associated with trial. Many of these legal matters are typically opened within a court setting, so business litigation lawyers will represent either a plaintiff or a defendant in an ongoing lawsuit in a criminal or civil matter. When it comes to civil matters, one common type of law firm that you might need support from is a business litigation law firm. 

A business litigation law firm works with company owners and other interested stakeholders who have contracts and business with companies in order to protect their interests. A business litigation lawyer is a legal professional who uses their skills and experience to manage both big and small legal concerns that any business might have to negotiate in the course of regular business. There are many different factors in business that can contribute to conflicts and legal disputes. 

Litigation could be the only way to resolve some of these disputes or might be required in order for a business to protect their rights. In these trial cases, these follow very similar legal strategies and patterns as other civil litigation cases. Opposing parties will present evidence, witnesses, motions and statements throughout the litigation process. In a civil litigation case the business is usually one of the parties involved in the lawsuit and other businesses, individuals, organizations or stakeholders are on the other side. 

Your lawyer might realize that you have strong evidence to refute the claims of the other side. You’d want your attorney to step in with that information as soon as possible. Showing it to the other side could end the litigation matter right there or at least encourage the other party to consider settlement. The truth is that you don’t know your options until you’ve had an attorney from a business litigation law firm take a full look at your case. The sooner you can do this, the better for your case at hand. If it’s a possibility you could get targeted again in the future, it’s powerful to build a relationship with a lawyer now.

FAQ

  • Who Does a Business Litigation Attorney Work For?

    In some cases, someone who focuses specifically on the area of business matters might work for a bigger law firm that has a broad range of practice areas. Other business litigation lawyers focus the primary aspect of their practice on business litigation issues alone. Many businesses do not often find themselves facing litigation, meaning that they do not need to retain the services of a contracted in-house litigation counsel. However, in certain industries, such as in insurance, in-house business litigation lawyers are often used to handle the high number of lawsuits. 

    Both parties in a business litigation suit likely have their own legal representation to assist them with settlement conversations and any court-related appearances.

  • What Kinds of Cases Does a Business Litigation Law Firm Handle?

    It's a good idea to have a relationship with a business litigation law firm well before a lawsuit is ever filed. This is because your attorney will be familiar with your usual scope of business and your exposure to risk before any lawsuits arise. This can make it that much easier and faster for them to step in on your behalf in a business litigation case. There are many different responsibilities associated with a business litigator, including:

    • Handling conflicts that are associated with alleged breach of contract.
    • Handling contract interpretation or negotiation disputes.
    • Managing related business activities and business partnerships that could be ripe for conflict.
    • Handling disputes associated with lawsuits filed by disgruntled employees who are filing wrongful termination or harassment suits.
    • Handling disputes associated with shareholder issues of managerial control and direction. 

    Some business litigation law firms will also specialize in specific types of lawsuits or areas of the law, such as intellectual property or patent law, product liability suits, and IRS or business tax liability matters. There are many different possible controversial moments associated with negotiations and business litigation cases, meaning that your attorney from a business litigation law firm should have extensive experience keeping their cool in these situations and in understanding the different ways that you can manage responses. 

    Working through these difficult moments is a key factor to look for when hiring a lawyer from a business litigation law firm. Many business litigators are no stranger to the courtroom and have in fact helped many different businesses navigate complex legal situations. Furthermore, business litigators should also be able to write well because it is very possible that you could resolve your business litigation case outside of court entirely. Business litigators are often persuasive and successful writers and speakers. They might have to do things, such as:

    • Determining which experts might be required during the litigation process
    • Identifying precedent and case law that support your side of the case
    • Developing a big picture strategy to determine responsibility and cause of the core issues in the business dispute, which includes research of facts, paperwork and the situation at hand. 
    • Putting together briefs for court that explain the facts of the event, detail the evidence that has been submitted in support of those claims, and identify the right to recover. 

    A common question asked by those facing an ongoing business dispute is, “Do we have to go to court?” In most cases, the answer is no. You might be able to use the experience of your business litigation law firm attorney to negotiate a resolution or settlement without having to go to trial. 

  • What Does a Business Litigation Law Firm Do After Filing the Initial Motion?

    In most business litigation cases, one party will start the case by alleging something such as breach of contract. The other party then must receive this information and file a response. After an initial motion has been filed by an attorney from a business litigation law firm, the next process is discovery during which time both sides of the case are responsible for sharing their information with opposing counsel, such as evidence or witnesses to be used. 

    Other pre-trial motions might also be carried out during this time. Many business litigation issues can effectively be settled during the pre-trial stage, meaning that you might not have to go to court at all. In fact, the hiring of the right business litigation law firm could dissuade the other party in the case from moving forward with their legal claim. If your attorney has a track record of success in court, the other side might be encouraged to settle sooner rather than later.       

    If the case moves forward, you could be looking at weeks or months spent in court mode. Your hearings and events will be scheduled in the calendar around other trials and based on judge and lawyer availability. Of course, all of these take you away from your business and add further stress to your life, which is why it should be considered of the utmost importance to get a lawyer to work with you immediately after the case is opened. 

  • When Should My Company Hire a Business Litigation Law Firm

    You most certainly need the help of a business litigation law firm when you’re in the midst of ongoing litigation. If you’ve been named in a suit, you need legal counsel immediately. If a suit has already been filed, the other side has legal counsel that has had a jumpstart in looking at the major case issue and in preparing the material for court. You need to make sure you’re ready to take action quickly to get your attorney prepared for the case.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
