Operating a business in the State of California often requires legal action, whether through litigation, arbitration or mediation, to enforce the rights of legitimate business owners and operators. Of course, the unfortunate reality is that business owners will also be forced to defend themselves from legal action as a cost of doing business in this litigious environment. In some circumstances our client’s best interest are served by fighting though trial to achieve the desired result. In other circumstances, negotiating a settlement best serves the business needs. At Dicker & Dicker, we bring a pragmatic approach to litigation to achieve the results best suited for your particular business.
We have engaged in litigation involving all types of contract matters, commercial disputes, interference with business, defamation, insurance bad faith, labor and employment, and collections. No matter what type of business you run, having an understanding of your rights is a key to creating sound business decisions, including those that need to be made during the course of litigation.
The decision to settle or go through trial is a tough call, often one of the most difficult decisions a company can make. The decision must be objective and based on the best interest of your business. Through our experience with hundreds of high-stakes, “bet the company” cases, we can better explain options for resolution, conduct a thorough and objective risk analysis, and help clients reach the best decision for their company. Our experience and success as well as our determined advocacy and preparation often results in favorable settlements for our clients without wasteful lawyering. In and out of the courtroom, we are adept at responding to emergencies such as preliminary injunctions, and we are capable of taking over a case handled by another firm on the eve of trial.
