In today’s business climate, companies large and small need to stay competitive in order to survive. Unresolved legal disputes between a business and its customers can do irreparable damage to the company’s reputation. Shareholder disputes can put a company out of business.
Handling disputes among shareholders and partners is much like handling those within relationships. Parties to a business have invested their time, money or other parts of themselves into the business. They have accumulated knowledge about the daily functions of the company and know all the intimate details.
If a dispute cannot be handled internally, there may be call for the help of an attorney with the ability to efficiently settle the dispute without a trial. Negotiations prevent a more public display of your internal disagreement through trial, but resolving your matter may require a courtroom appearance.
Disputes can extend to external entities, such as a competing company. Settlements could resolve the issue, but a trial may be necessary. In the event of your dispute seeking a jury’s decision, a judgement in your favor may be challenged through a post-trial motion or appeal. All of these proceedings can be lengthy and financially and emotionally costly for you or your business.
