Business LawBusiness Litigation

What should I do if my business gets sued?

“The biggest thing really, other than consulting with council to find out what your options are and all those types of things, is to try to solve the problem. When it comes to businesses, they’re in the business of making money, doing what it is that they do, providing the services or making the goods that they make. Litigating cases and paying lots of money to lawyers is not part of anybody’s business plan, so really just try to find a way to solve the problem and see if you can make it go away.”

“Getting the lawyers involved, or at least lawyers like us who are litigation council, that means we’re going to be going to the courthouse over this, should really be after you’ve exhausted your other opportunities to try to resolve the issue. From that point, if you’ve decided or the other side isn’t being reasonable or it just cannot be resolved, then I think you can bring in council and we may have to litigate it. But even then, all along we’re going to be making an eye towards what’s the best business decision to make for your company. “
