We can agree that business dispute lawyer should not be expensive. The larger the law firm protecting your business, the higher their fees. I recognize that early business resolution is usually better than a prolonged war. Nevertheless, a business litigation attorney must not be afraid to go to trial. Many business litigation attorneys do not have jury trial experience. I have nearly thirty jury, bench, and arbitration trials. As a dispute attorney, I aim for personal service and attention towards the best early resolution.

The four critical things a business must do when sued:
Most business dispute lawyers do not have trial experience and pressure their clients to settle. One of the most important question you should ask the potential business dispute lawyer is: How many trials have you done?
When your business is at stake, going to trial is like going to the Superbowl and no time for a rookie lawyer with no trial experience. Selecting an experience trial lawyer will be one of the most critical decisions you will make for your business.
Attorney Brad Nakase successfully represented business clients in trials resulting in multi-million-dollar verdicts in my clients’ favor; two of my many trial success includes:
I’ve started my legal career in 2005 representing businesses of all sizes. My first few business litigation cases involved defending business clients in lawsuits brought by big companies like Microsoft and MGA Entertainment. Later in my career, I was a litigation lawyer at an international law firm, Bremer Whyte et al., where I protected the interests of major insurance companies and their policyholders in a multi-million-dollar lawsuits.
Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties who seek either money damages (compensation) or equitable relief (asking the court to force a party to do something or refrain from doing something). A civil lawsuit can be filed either in federal or state court. Different conflicts comprise civil litigation, and a litigator usually specializes in a couple of areas. Some common types of civil litigation are:
When hiring a business dispute attorney, ask the lawyer if he has experience with litigating business disputes.
A litigator is a lawyer that specializes in civil litigation and represents the parties in trials, hearings, mediations, and arbitration before state and local courts. He/she has civil litigation skills, including but not limited to, client’s development skills, negotiation skills, advocacy skills (oral and written), the capability to synthesize complicated materials (legal and factual), and others. A lawyer with experience in business disputes is important to ensure he knows business and commercial laws.
As a business dispute attorney, I like to recommend to all parties to mediation to save money. Mediation is a process (more like a meeting) in which parties, their attorneys, and a mediator (mutually selected) try to reach an agreement by both parties. It helps prevent the case from going to trial. It is essential to keep in mind that the mediator can make no legally binding decision, and he/she is only there to help resolve the dispute. Mediation is a good option, and Nakase Law Firm also recommends it because more than half the cases get solved through meditation. If required, Brad Nakase also serves as a mediator, and he has a reputation as an impartial lawyer.
No, you can file a civil case in 30 days in the California State Court. This period starts from the date someone serves you notice of the lawsuit. You can submit a responsive pleading in Federal Court in 21 days. The court can grant the other party judgment against you if you are late or do not want to respond to civil summon. Please contact Brad Nakase to get counseling on what you need to do next and how one should file a responsive pleading in a civil case.
The cost of a business dispute attorney depends on various factors, such as the attorney’s hourly rate, the time it is taking for the case, the number of mediation sessions, etc. It is essential to understand that civil lawsuits can not only be time-consuming but expensive as well. That’s why Brad Nakase always counsels his clients to avoid litigation and only recommends moving forward with it if it becomes the only viable solution. His priority is to save his client’s time and money. You can call him at 619-550-1321 for a free consultation.
It is strongly recommended not to move forward with business dispute lawyer that demand a fixed upfront fee to represent you through the trial. Although some lawyer may focus on your case, most lawyers don’t pursue the case with much commitment. It is because they don’t have any other incentive.
So for most cases, you can expect a trial about one year out from filing. The overwhelming majority of civil cases are resolved prior to trial. Most civil cases are settled out of court because both parties realize that it is the most efficient way to resolve the dispute. While an actual trial in court usually takes only a few days, the pre-trial process and the process of preparing a case can take weeks or months.
Regardless if you are the plaintiff or the defendant, if the money for litigation is not worth the money you’re trying to recover or save at trial, a settlement is probably a better option. A business dispute lawyer can offer to settle the dispute at any time. A settlement offer may be made before a lawsuit has been filed, before a trial has begun, or even during jury deliberation of a trial. If you can resolve the case faster and more economically without a trial, settlement may be the best option.
