An Individual Basis
Despite the name, business litigation quite often involves individual employees and their employer. The reasons can vary, but some of the more common disputes include:
- Breach of contract
- Unreasonable business practices
- Abusive work place
- Failure to pay
- Wrongful termination
- Harassment of any kind
A few steps to keep in mind, should you find yourself contending with some of the above mentioned issues: First and foremost you’ll want to speak with your company’s human resource officer. Filing a complaint directly often will yield positive results – but be sure to document this complaint along with any response you receive from HR or management. Additionally, this will provide evidence that you attempted an internal resolution to the situation, prior to resorting to external counsel.
Should your company lack a human resource department and management has failed to address your grievance, get in touch with an experience business litigation attorney for more information.
On the other hand, as an employer there are countless legal issues that can arise seemingly out of nowhere. It is up to you, and your management, to keep an eye out for some of the following wider disputes that can occur in-house or in the market:
- Internal fraud
- Copyright/trademark infringement of your property or vice/versa
- Product liability
- Shareholder disputes
- Intellectual property lawsuits
- Commercial lease disputes
- Employment disagreements
Quite often, disputes at this level can be resolved outside the courtroom, with the two parties coming together on a fair settlement. In many cases the complaint or issue can be resolved with a quick response and decisive action within the company hierarchy. However, should you need to go to trial, retaining an experienced business litigation attorney can make all the difference.
