Many commercial disputes are resolved by the parties themselves and never require the services of a business lawyer. In some cases however, the disagreement is so broad in scope, or so vital to the interests of the parties, that court action is necessary.
If your business dispute may end up in court, it is wise to seek the counsel of an attorney with extensive trial experience. Trial experience not only means that your attorney has the skills to represent you in court, but also the experience to advise you on settlement options based upon his assessment of how your case would be play out in trial. In other words, the seasoned trial lawyer is the one who can best keep you out of court.
