When you or your company is facing a legal matter, it can be easy to feel like your hands are tied. However, there are things you can do to keep your case moving forward on the right track.
- Staying organized and keeping all relevant records. This means all paperwork, invoices, contracts (and drafts), notes from meetings, calendars, and anything else that might play a role in your dispute. These could all be used as evidence to help your case, so make copies, give them to your lawyer, and store all documentation in a safe place.
- Keeping private matters private. Certain business litigation matters, such as those involving trade secrets, obviously require a strict level of confidentiality. However, there are many reasons you may want to keep quiet about the legal issues your business is dealing with. You should start by implementing your company’s crisis communications plan and deciding what, if anything, you will say publicly about the matter. You can count on our experienced attorneys to help determine the legal steps you can take to protect your privacy as much as possible.
- Making the tough internal decisions. There’s no such thing as an easy lawsuit, and in the world of business litigation, difficult internal decisions need to be made early. For example, if your legal issue is related to finances, you may need to hire a third party to review your accounting records as soon as possible to determine exactly what is going on. Or, if the dispute is between two owners of the business, each person may need to make the call to hire his or her own representation. Our experienced Virginia business litigation attorneys can walk you through the steps you need to take internally to help your business weather the storm.
In business disputes, one of the most important moves you will make is hiring the right lawyer to handle your case. At Lichtenstein Law Group PLC, our attorneys have earned the trust of businesses throughout Virginia over the years for being professional, efficient and highly skilled.
