Commercial Litigation

You may have received a lawsuit for breach of contract or for monies owed on a payment obligation. You may be an alleged debtor. Maybe you have received a letter claiming breach of monies owed, but have not, yet, been sued. Or maybe monies are owed to you.

It can be preferable to settle a situation before litigation is necessary. This can be beneficial for both sides.

We do our best to find points of compromise or legal defenses to a claim of breach or allegation of monies owed, or prepare causes of action to collect monies owed. Then, if litigation becomes necessary, we already have most of the work done through a thorough and diligent negotiation effort. The defendant then just has to answer a complaint with their existing defense(s), accordingly, and possibly add a counterclaim, if applicable. Or, if the client is owed money, the lawsuit is, virtually, ready to go.

So, litigation can be more of a culmination of a negotiation than a new process unto itself if the legal research and a solid review of the facts during the attempt to settle are complete. If a pre-lawsuit settlement can’t happen on the facts and/or law(s), then filing a complaint, or an answer and making a counterclaims can efficiently follow.
