However, in some situations, disputes are unavoidable. Whether the dispute is over a contract with an employee, vendor or customer, an issue between owners or a problem with a competitor, obtaining skilled legal advice as soon as possible can mean the difference between a costly, protracted legal battle and a quick resolution to the matter. While no outcome can be guaranteed, the early involvement of a knowledgeable business law and litigation attorney can often prevent or minimize business disputes quickly, which saves money.
I have represented employers, employees and business partners in disputes including the purchase and sale of business' assets, negotiating and litigating provisions of employment agreements, protecting businesses from improper conduct from competitors, and resolving matters between business partners. I focus on resolving disputes in an efficient, cost-effective manner through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution techniques such as arbitration and mediation. These strategies help my clients get back to focusing on what is important: Running their businesses.
Of course, there are times when litigation is unavoidable. In those cases, I will aggressively protect the rights of my clients. By communicating openly with my clients throughout the process, I give them a realistic opinion about the likelihood of a success that allows them to make the best decision about how to resolve the issue.
