Being a business owner can provide numerous challenges. It can be devastating to a business when a vendor breaches an agreement, a customer fails to pay for products or services, or an ex-employee takes sensitive information, and this is especially true if these matters result in litigation. It is important for commercial litigation cases to be resolved quickly, with the best possible outcome for your business.
We understand that the cost of litigation can be burdensome. Most cases can be resolved out of court; therefore, our strategy for commercial litigation starts with mediation, negotiation, and other alternative dispute resolution options. Resolving a case through these methods creates a better outcome and more satisfied clients than a potential litigation result. However, if these techniques do not work, we do not hesitate to aggressively pursue our clients’ interests through litigation.
At Jennings & Fulton, our attorneys have years of trial experience dealing with business litigation and other important factors like reputation and preserving relationships. We have experience in litigating cases involving intellectual property, real estate, construction disputes, bankruptcy, breach of contract, employment, and other practice areas. Regardless of the path your case takes, we work efficiently and vigorously to get results at every level of your case, and to resolve cases as efficiently as possible.
