When it comes to protecting what matters most to you, there is no room for anything but direct and honest communication between you and your attorney.

You May Be Insured When You Face Business Litigation

In the same way that many of us don't have the provisions of our home insurance policies committed to memory, many of us aren't clear on what certain business insurance policies cover. Many of these policies actually contain provisions for legal expenses when it comes to certain disputes.

If you have coverage of attorney's fees and other legal expenses, they won't take effect until you file a claim. Get in touch with Landay Roberts in San Diego, California, and our business litigation lawyers will take a look at your policy to help you understand what is covered. Our business litigation lawyers can also reach out to your insurance provider on your behalf to negotiate fees. 

The Types of Damages at Stake In Business Litigation

In many business litigation cases, either monetary damages or equitable relief are at stake. 

  • Monetary damages are awarded as compensation for actual losses. For example, if a company can demonstrate what their profits would likely have been if a breach of contract had not happened, they may be awarded that amount minus their actual profits.
  • Equitable relief can involve either one party fulfilling a contract (by taking actions such as completing work or paying the other party according to the terms of a contract) or absolving all parties of their obligations.

Arbitration vs. Traditional Litigation

Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution process that can be faster and less expensive than traditional litigation. Sessions take place in private, with both parties and their lawyers presenting to an arbitrator (a neutral third party, often a retired judge) rather than a court. Both parties can have a say in choosing the arbitrator, and usually split the arbitrator's fees. The arbitrator will reach either a binding or non-binding decision. There are fewer avenues to appeal the arbitrator's decision, but it is possible.

Parties can choose to enter arbitration, or it may be required under certain contacts. In cases involving less than $50,000 in damages for each plaintiff, the courts may order the case to arbitration. If your case is going to arbitration, it's important to understand that presenting to an arbitrator is a unique skill you should demand in a lawyer. Landay Roberts has represented many clients in arbitration and can help make your side of the dispute understood in order to achieve the best possible outcome. Reach out to our business law attorneys office in San Diego, California, to get started.
