Why Hire a Commercial Litigation Lawyer for a Small Dispute?

If you become involved in what seems to be a minor dispute, hiring a commercial litigation lawyer is a smart choice.

How a Commercial Litigation Lawyer Can Help Resolve Small Disputes

Small disputes can arise in many circumstances in the commercial world. Whether the dispute is a disagreement between shareholders and partners, a breach of contract claim, an employment dispute, or any other source of conflict, the issue needs to be resolved quickly for the sake of all involved businesses. Allowing a dispute to linger on for a long period of time can create confusion and uncertainty, which undermines normal operations and affects the ability of the involved businesses to thrive and grow.

Commercial litigation lawyers can provide assistance with facilitating a swift resolution.  Hiring a lawyer for a small dispute is beneficial because:

  • An attorney can explain the different approaches to dispute resolution and help choose the best approach.  One option, mediation, is described by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as: "an informal and confidential way for people to resolve disputes with the help of a neutral mediator who is trained to help people discuss their differences." Mediators do not make decisions, but facilitate negotiations among interested parties. Arbitration and litigation are also dispute resolution options in which an arbitrator or a judge hears arguments and evidence and makes a binding choice.  A commercial litigation lawyer can explain pros and cons of each option and help you to move forward to choose an effective dispute resolution method so you can resolve your differences.
  • An attorney can explain your rights and how the law treats your disagreement. In many cases, commercial disputes arise because the people involved do not know how to interpret a contract or how to interpret the law. Attorneys know the laws and understand contract interpretation  and legal interpretation. Your lawyer can carefully review the source of the disagreement, applicable legal statutes and precedents, and contracts you have created to help you better understand what the likely resolution is. Based on this information, it may be easier to negotiate a resolution since you'd know what to expect if you litigated the issue.
  • An attorney can protect your interests. If a disagreement arises because your rights are not being respected, hiring a lawyer shows you are serious about protecting yourself. This alone can often be enough to get the opposing party to back down and discontinue unreasonable or unfair behaviors.

These are just a few reasons why it makes sense to hire a commercial litigation lawyer even for small disputes. The sooner you act, the sooner an effective resolution can be reached and the less likely it is that the disagreement will blow up into a major fight.
