Milwaukee Business Lawyers

Are you involved in a Business Litigation?

If so, and you are looking at law firms, you have probably asked yourself the following questions:

  • How is Halling & Cayo S.C. different?
  • What will Halling & Cayo S.C. do for my business?
  • How much will my business’ case cost?

The business litigation team at Halling & Cayo S.C. focuses on serving business owners and corporations in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Our goal is to avoid the stodgy attorney-client “this is what you should do” mentality and strive for a more expansive and collaborate approach that keeps your profitability in mind. We strive to remember why you are in business, it is not to avoid liability (as many attorneys seem to see it) but to make money.

How is Halling & Cayo S.C. different?

A favorite saying is “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That statement is particularly true when it comes to business relationships. I have seen too many Business Litigation cases where costs escalate into the tens of thousands of dollars all because the agreement was not well written, or not written at all. Whether you are in that situation or not, it is key that your litigation starts off on the right foundation. Too many lawyers use the kitchen sink approach, throw everything up and see what they hope sticks. Part of the reason for this is that they bill by the hour. That approach is a great way to justify tons of hours to bill but may not be the right approach for your case. The reality is, we have to look at a lawsuit like any other business transaction. That process starts with knowing what your costs will be, which we can now provide through our Flat Fee Litigation pricing model, and then assessing what you want to accomplish. Only then can we work towards a positive result for your case. See how it works

What will Halling & Cayo S.C. do for my business?

It can be summed up in one word “Protection”. Aligning our interests with yours, through the use of a flat fee, allows us to focus on protecting your business against litigation as wells as helping you enforce your business’ rights in your case, including pursuing claims. With a Flat Fee established, whether Plaintiff or Defendant, you are in a powerful position to negotiate your dispute. Unlike the other side, you know exactly what your litigation will cost and thus can make an informed decision for resolution. Keeping your ultimate business goals in mind, resolving your dispute as quickly as possible for the best possible outcome, we can focus on how to best gain that necessary leverage to resolve the dispute, not how we can find a way to bill more time to the file. If for some reason the case cannot be resolved, we are ready, willing, and able to take the case to trial, and you will know exactly what that will cost before it happens.

How much will my business’ case cost?

For you sales people out there, you will know the old adage regarding price vs. costs. One (price) is what you actually pay for the service, the other (cost) is the total cost of paying the price for the service versus the potential cost of not hiring an attorney. While it is impossible to tell you the price without the relevant facts for your particular situation, we offer free consultations to discuss your business litigation and will quote you a flat fee model for your case. Our fee structure is split into phases, so you get the best of both worlds, certainty of price while still retaining the benefit of early resolution of your case.

"Attorney Sean Sweeney and his team at Halling and Cayo showed supreme knowledge, intelligence and effort to get my case to the final post, where their professionalism and intuition guided me through the jungle, that the law is to a layman, for a successful conclusion. I highly recommend Halling and Cayo.”

It seems it is almost a right of passage for every business to at some point to become involved in a business dispute that devolves into a lawsuit. These kinds of cases can run the gamut from minor disputes regarding interpretation of a contract or who is owed what, to major “bet the company” litigation involving fraud or other significant liability.
