Why Should You Hire A Georgia Business Litigation Attorney?
Business litigation attorneys are a critical part of the parties that need to present when they are drafting complex contracts that describe control responsibilities and rights of company owners, partners, and officers. These contracts are operating agreements that all parties must honor. Our role in helping the contractual process is to make sure your rights are protected as the owner, business officer, or an influential partner.
As the owner, we believe you know your company much better than everyone else. We offer our deep knowledge of the law in Georgia. Whenever you contact us about services, we will ask you a couple of basic questions about some of the fundamental facts of the situation. If we believe you are better off legally by not pursuing the issue prior to our consultation, we will tell you. Our business litigation lawyer will get a consultation scheduled with you in order to review the essential documents for your business and to obtain as much relevant information that we can. Once we have the findings of the information that has been collected, we will then be in a better position to advise you.
How Does Business Litigation Differ From Traditional Litigation?
Compared to traditional litigation, business litigation is unique in that is mainly focuses on the operations and formation of companies and corporations. This covers the structure of the essential documents which define the responsibilities and roles of owners, officers, partners, and shareholders of the company. Georgia has laws governing the running of corporations and businesses, which can be influenced by the signed operating agreements when companies or organizations are formed.
To Resolve My Business-Related Dispute, Is Litigation Necessary?
Yes, litigation is a critical aspect of the measures taken in order to solve business-related disputes. There are some unique situations where mediation and arbitration may be used rather than business litigation. With arbitration, a neutral third party listens to the two sides and then makes an unbiased, final decision. A neutral third party is also involved in mediation, but in this case, the role is assisting the disputing sides in order to find a middle ground that is agreeable to both sides.
After handling these legal issues for many years, we now strongly believe and recommend that our clients never favor or rule out one solution over another until they have compared and exhaustively explored all of the options that are available to them.
