Skilled communication often key to avoiding business litigation

| May 4, 2015 | Business Litigation |

Regardless of a company’s size or whether it is privately held or publicly traded, there can be a lot of stakeholders with separate agendas. If any one of them feels his or her concerns are not being heard or addressed, it can spark clashes that can threaten the well-being and future of the individuals and the company as a whole.

Litigation may seem to be the only means to resolve such problems, but that might not be the most efficient way to deal with the different types of disputes that can surface in North Carolina. At these times, it often is most effective to seek the help of an attorney who can appreciate the points that the various parties hold in common and who has the ability to negotiate or mediate a resolution based on those shared aims.

One size does not fit all when it comes to dealing with the myriad business issues. External pressures from competitors may represent one source of friction. But internal disputes can be even more damaging unless they are handled with firm propriety.

Identifying all the possible alternatives and then developing the appropriate strategies to obtain the most favorable outcome takes experience. Legal training is critical of course. But there is skill that comes mainly from putting training into practice.

There are many good reasons to mitigate risk of litigation. High cost is certainly one of them. Not knowing what outcome the litigation process might deliver is also a significant concern. Discovering options that lead to favorable terms should be a priority.
