You want a firm that will fight hard for you, in court and out of court. Resolving a business dispute between partners, franchisors, shareholders, customers, or vendors is one of the most difficult and stressful aspects of owning and operating a business, corporation, or LLC in the state of Colorado. Litigation should be done aggressively, yet your firm should approach it with great care.
Lawsuits and litigation matters often come up completely unexpectedly. They can also come to boil after years of ongoing problems that you may or may not be aware of. The law firm you choose should be intricately familiar with laws pertaining to new business startups, franchise preparation, securities documentation and real estate transactions.
Commercial lawsuits and business litigation should be dealt with quickly and with a firm hand. If you have been served a lawsuit, hire an attorney or law firm without any further delay. Businesses known for caving in, failing to defend their interests or settling automatically can become easy targets for recurring legal intimidation, non-payment and the kinds of lawsuits that are basically legalized extortion. You can either establish or destroy your reputation by your approach to the litigation you face.
Well-drafted contracts can prevent a very high percentage of business lawsuits, and the well-drafted contract can also enable you to litigate more effectively and cost-effectively when resorting to litigation becomes necessary. Beneficial clauses can include attorney's fees provisions, choice of law and venue, jury waivers, liquidated damages clauses, confessions of judgment, and security interests.
