How Does a Business or Commercial Dispute Proceed?
A business or commercial dispute comes in two phases.
The First Phase is called pre-litigation. This means a demand letter is sent out by one party to another using an attorney. A lawsuit is not filed at this time but a demand is made for money owed by one side to another, and it usually involves a deadline for a response and threatens the filing of a civil lawsuit.
The Second Phase is called litigation. This means that a lawsuit is filed with the court and you are ordered to file an answer within a definite period of time or else you will lose automatically. Therefore, it is crucial to quickly find and hire a skilled and experienced Texas business and commercial litigation attorney to defend you.
Alternatively, you may want to hire a business and commercial litigation attorney to draft and file a lawsuit against a party who has breached a contract, owes you money, or engaged in harmful activities against you or your business. You usually have limited time to act and file a lawsuit to protect your rights and ensure that evidence is not destroyed by the other side.
How Can a Business and Commercial Litigation Attorney Help?
We understand that business and commercial disputes and litigation are usually not a source of profits for business but the legal exposure of not taking action can end up costing three to ten times more than defending the lawsuit or not suing for the money that owed to you or to stop fraud, unfair competition, or stopping a shareholder or partner from stealing the assets.
A skilled Business and Commercial Litigation Attorney will try to resolve your disputes quickly and efficiently. Our Attorneys will listen to you and come up with two or three strategies to resolve your dispute and then follow the course of action you want.
