Business Litigation

Business Litigation Attorneys Located in Grand Rapids and Serving All of West Michigan

If you’re in business, you’re likely to be involved in some sort of dispute almost every day even if it’s just an upset customer requesting a refund. In fact, in most cases, it’s a good business practice to end disputes as quickly as possible to avoid the time and expense of litigation. However, there are times when the amount of money is so great or the rights involved are so important that you have no choice but to litigate the issue. Our firm is here to help you solve those key problems.

Informal Dispute Resolution

Even when direct talks between the parties fail and lawyers are called in, most disputes are still resolved informally. Part of this is from the lawyers being able to provide more information about the chances of success at trial and the exact legal rights to recovery involved. The involvement of a lawyer can also show the other side that you are serious about pursuing the matter as far as you need to.

Depending on the exact circumstances of the case, several options may be available including informal phone calls, formal letters, in-person negotiation sessions, mediation, and arbitration. Our goal is to help you follow the most cost-effective path towards pursuing a favorable outcome.

Formal Litigation

If you choose to file a court claim, our experienced attorneys will immediately begin preparing your case and help you to gather the necessary evidence. While we are prepared to take your case to a jury verdict when needed, we will also continue to pursue a settlement agreement to try to provide you with multiple options to choose from at all phases of litigation.
