What is Business Litigation?
Business litigation is a legal dispute related to business activities. Often they result from breach of contract, unfair compensation, and fraud. Disputing parties will typically try to attempt resolution via mediation or arbitration. However, if the dispute is unresolvable, the parties will take the dispute to court. While business litigation is time-consuming and expensive, it is oftentimes necessary to protect the business. Both sides will hire lawyers to represent and protect their interests during business litigation. The attorneys’ job is to investigate the case and present evidence in court.
