Commercial Litigation – When Should You Sue?

in Business and Management by

If you find that you or your corporation is in need of commercial litigation lawyers in Sydney for legal advice and/or representation in court, look for a team of lawyers who are experienced in all phases of business law, but that is small enough to give you personal service in a timely and affordable manner.

Under Threat

Are you under threat by foreign corporations, other local corporations, businesses or individuals engaged in fraudulent business practices, defamatory attacks, intellectual property infringement, nuisance suits or other actions that have hurt or will hurt you or your company? You may have to consider the services of commercial litigation lawyers in order to protect the interests of you or your company. There are limits on how much time you have to file suit so seeking legal advice from commercial litigation lawyers is vital and urgent. Not all conflicts and consultations result in litigation, but you will need legal advice to help you determine if it is time to file suit.

Contract Disputes

Business law is becoming increasingly complex and contract law can be complicated. Many disputes arise in relation to contract performance. Whether a person or a business is failing to fulfill a contract with you, commercial litigation lawyers can help you understand contract disputes and resolution strategies. Contractual obligations make up a tremendous amount of the disputes between companies or between individuals and companies. If a business or individual is failing to perform under a contract and will not agree to discharge the contract or perform adequately under the provisions of the contract, you may have to sue in order to get the contract discharged under order of a court. Commercial litigation lawyers in Sydney are committed to providing expert legal service and will work with you to provide you with the dispute resolution strategy that is best for you.

Papers Served

If you are currently being sued, then you are already involved in commercial litigation. You may need to consider a counter suit to combat the current litigation, especially if it is a nuisance suit that is being used as a ploy to extort money from you or your company. Many companies do not like initiating lawsuits because they are concerned about public image. Commercial litigation lawyers can handle press releases concerning your litigation and/or advise your Public Relations Department on the best way to report on the litigation to the public.

Sydney is a thriving metropolis with many facets. It’s only natural that the different peoples and businesses within it will come into conflict. Your public image is important, but seeking the advice of commercial litigation lawyers may be the only way to preserve your rights. If you allow others to infringe on your intellectual property without dispute for a long time, it may be construed by a jury as tacit approval of the other company’s behaviour. It is better to know immediately what your rights and duties are when your company comes into conflict with individuals or groups.
