What is business litigation?
The field of business litigation focuses directly on matters of the law
related to business. It provides guidelines, stipulations and legal guidance
for companies, partnerships, organizations and corporations on how to
run their business. Additionally it gives these different groups the ability
to mediate through issues of conflict that may occur within their company
by detailing out various laws that pertain to contracts, non-compete agreements
How do I know if litigation is the right option?
Every case is different and cannot be determined without the guidance of
a competent lawyer, but arbitration or mediation may be a valuable option.
In many cases, however, the issues are too complex and impossible to come
to an amicable agreement between the two parties.
When a lawsuit is filed against another company or partner, a settlement
may be reached prior to going to trial. It is vital that the case still
be prepared to go to litigation in the event that the counsel on the opposing
side takes a close look at the details of your case. He or she may encourage
their client to simply settle rather than go through with litigation if
they believe you have a solid defense.
How long will the litigation process take?
This can be entirely dependent upon the issue at stake. If it is a more
complicated and involved issue that requires extreme negotiations with
stubborn parties, it could take months or even years to resolve the situation.
When there are more than two parties involved in the conflict, this can
also be an additional factor causing the case to take longer than usual.
Having a Los Angeles business litigation lawyer on your side can certainly
help speed up some of the legal procedures and can inform you of the progress
throughout every step of the way.
What does a non-compete agreement do?
Often times when employees get hired on with a company, they are required
to sign a non-compete agreement which states that they will not leave
to go work for the company's competitor. It is a form of refraining
from unfair competition in the workplace. These agreements are set up
to help keep trade secrets, ideas, or technological advancements safe
within the business that created them. If an employee violates this contract,
they are guilty of a breach of contract.
What is a breach of contract?
Anytime that an individual within a company is hired, a partnership is
formed or external services are rendered for a particular business there
is some form of contract. This legally binding agreement determines the
business practices that the individual or company will adhere to while
the contract is in place. If one party breaks any part of that agreement,
it is considered a breach of contract. This may involve a myriad of things
but typically involves one person or group not keeping up their end of the deal.
