Business Litigation: Protect Your Company with Legal Support

The last thing you want to deal with as a business owner is litigation that threatens your company’s reputation and finances. The process is complex and time-consuming, taking your attention away from the core focus – running a successful business. Although this type of litigation is challenging, you can adequately protect your company with support from SCC Legal. Our litigation lawyers handle NJ business law litigation and trial cases, whether for business fraud, partnership liability, or arbitration. We have a long tradition of providing exceptional legal representation to small and mid-sized businesses in New Jersey. Let’s take a closer look at the ins and outs of commercial litigation and how we can support your company as soon as possible. 

What is Business Litigation? 

Business or commercial litigation involves disputes that originate from business relationships and can arise between two companies, an individual and a business, or a company and government entity. Fortunately, commercial litigation doesn’t always lead to lawsuits. An arbitration process might resolve the matter effectively. However, when a dispute goes to court, it becomes public record. If the litigation is not managed by a business litigation attorney with the appropriate expertise and experience, it can become a financial or reputational business risk.    

Common Business Litigation Types  

There are as many litigation types as there are diverse companies and facets to running a business. Some types can be complex, such as litigation related to the Securities Exchange Act, but business owners will be exposed to the most common types of disputes throughout their corporate career. These include:

  • Business collections
  • Insurance disputes
  • Class actions
  • Consumer fraud
  • Civil litigation
  • Trade secret disputes
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Shareholder-to-shareholder disputes
  • Partnership disputes

Employment disputes, including demotion, termination, employer-employee contracts, and harassment in the workplace are very sensitive matters that require a high level of understanding and research to navigate. An experienced business litigation lawyer in NJ will handle them with care and secure the best possible outcome for the innocent party. 

Role of Business Litigation Lawyers  

Large conglomerates tend to have in-house business lawyers who manage their litigation especially when the dispute requires a unique skillset or specialized knowledge. Most small and mid-size businesses, on the other hand, find and consult a business litigation lawyer on an as-needed basis. A commercial litigation attorney will protect their client’s interests before, during, and after court proceedings. Litigation is expensive, and a quality lawyer will always try to resolve the conflict amicably before entering litigation by going to the courts. 

Benefits of Business Litigation Attorneys  

What benefits do you and your company gain by appointing business litigation attorneys such as SCC Legal? Few disputes reach trial, as most are resolved through arbitration. An experienced lawyer will ensure your company is treated fairly by the neutral third party managing an arbitration, negotiating on your behalf for the most favorable outcome.  

Our team can interpret the legal language so you can make informed decisions, help you understand your legal rights, recommend the right course of action for your company, and guide you through the judicial process to minimize business losses.
