Business Disputes and Litigation

Making Demands

If your business needs legal representation and a proper demand letter drafted and sent to a third party, please contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation and obtain a quote for your business!

Pre-Suit Mediation

The final step taken by a business prior to litigation is called a pre-suit mediation conference. It is not very common, but if you have proper contracts in place for your business, you may find yourself needing to attend a pre-suit mediation. Mediation is an informal conference where the disputing parties meet together with a mediator. The mediator's job is to bring the parties closer to a resolution from being very far apart in their positions. A mediator can have the parties come to an agreement or impasse. It is imperative that you have solid counsel by your side for this mediation. Litigation is costly and a last ditch effort to resolve your business dispute should be executed at the best of your business' abilities.

Filing or Defending a Law Suit

 Businesses consider filing and defending law-suits as a cost of doing business. Once all amicable avenues are exhausted in a business dispute, the parties usually need to head to court. In Florida, if your business is in litigation, you are required to be represented by an attorney in court (exceptions are made for some landlords). If your business needs to file or defend a law suit please contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation and obtain a quote for your business! 

Arbitration

Some businesses have an arbitration clause in their contract. Arbitration is similar to mediation but instead of a mediator there is an arbitrator. The arbitrator acts like a judge and drafts a legally binding decision for the parties to follow. The arbitration decision is legally binding and enforceable by the court of proper jurisdiction.  If your business needs counsel for an arbitration please contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation and obtain a quote for your business!
