Every business, whether it’s a large, worldwide corporation or a small local shop, is susceptible to a dispute that results in a lawsuit. Lawsuits can be financial disasters for businesses, which is why it’s best to be prepared. Hiring a skilled business litigation attorney can be a beneficial decision for almost any company.
At Arizona Attorney Lawyers, our business litigation lawyers are available to handle virtually any type of business dispute, including controversies involving:
- Landlord/tenant issues
- Shareholders and partners
- Business divorce
- Real estate
- Derivative lawsuits
- Contractor disputes
- Homeowner association disputes
- Eminent domain
- Franchising disputes
Alternative Dispute Resolutions
Not all business litigation matters need to go to court. Some can be successfully settled out of court through alternative dispute resolution, which includes arbitration or mediation.
In arbitration and mediation proceedings, attorneys from our firm act as the neutral third party to your business dispute. Arbitration is a mini-trial, where the arbitrator acts as a judge. In binding arbitration, parties agree to accept the ruling no matter what; in nonbinding arbitration, parties reserve the right to take the matter to trial if they are unsatisfied with the outcome. In mediation, a mediator guides negotiations until parties arrive at a settlement or decide to take that matter to court.
The benefits of alternative dispute resolution include:
- Confidential with private, rather than public, filings and proceedings
- Less expensive
- Less time-consuming
