Business disputes can arise in any area of an enterprise. Partners can disagree, suppliers fail to make timed deliveries, employees get hurt or mistreated on the job, shareholders are upset with management decisions, or the government comes knocking on the door seeking explanations of conduct or products in the marketplace.
The corporate litigation lawyers at Massey, Stotser & Nichols, P.C., counsel and represent businesses in litigation across industries on a wide variety of legal disputes in Birmingham, Alabama and the Southeastern area of the state.
Whether you own a mom and pop store, are a franchise, or are an executive at a publicly traded company, the litigation needs of a business are the same. Businesses need advice and counsel of lawyers to initiate a lawsuit or defend against one when the parties involved in a dispute cannot reach an amicable solution.
THE BEST SETTLEMENT IS WHEN EVERYONE WINS
Oftentimes, during the settlement of claims, lawyers, judges, and other people connected with the litigation tell litigants that the best legal settlements are the ones where everyone loses. That suggestion is not the complete picture. When people are sued they become upset and defensive that their action or inaction may have harmed other people. The focus becomes proving they took correct action rather than resolving the dispute.
Companies are not in business to litigate disputes. Companies are in business of making products to sell to customers or providing services to clients for a profit. Whether you come out of the litigation process the winner or the loser is not important, resolving your lawsuit competently and quickly are the most important factors to focus on so that you can return to running your business instead of fighting about who is right and who is wrong.
