Common Concerns


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 and trademarks.


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.
