Our Approach In Resolving Your Business Dispute

Cole Law Group business litigation attorneys are committed to protecting your business interests as we seek a resolution to your legal matter. Achieving your goals and protecting your bottom line are our driving concerns at every stage.

We will begin by taking the time to understand your business and do a thorough assessment of the background and nature of your conflict.

At all times we will work with you to determine the most appropriate remedy for your unique situation.

When considering litigation, a business owner should be aware of other options that he or she might have:

Small claims court is usually the first place that a litigant will go when there are nuisance charges or minor money disputes.

Arbitration is a less expensive and less formal forum than a trial. An attorney may represent a business owner in arbitration. Opposing parties will appear before one or more arbitrators at a hearing in which they will present evidence in support of their respective cases. The arbitrator(s) will then render a written decision called an award. Awards are generally final and binding on the parties of the case.

Mediation is even less formal than arbitration and can serve as a "last ditch" effort before going to trial. It can be used to avoid the cost, time and aggravation of prolonged litigation. During this collaborative process, a third party (the mediator) helps opposing parties in a business dispute negotiate and work toward a mutual resolution.
