Recently on the blog we discussed breach of contract and the remedies that can be sought in the event that a contract is breached. Contractual issues are important and make up a significant portion of business law issues in California, but they do not incorporate all legal conflicts that can arise in the employment law context. Instead, there may be issues with regards to wage and hour laws and even matters related to harassment and discrimination.
Regardless of which side of these disputes you find yourself on, you could have a lot on the line. Of course, your primary concern may be compensation, as is usually the case in a breach of contract. But other matters may be important to you as well. The stark truth is that if you want to protect your interests, then you'll need to be armed with aggressive legal arguments that support your position. After all, your opponent likely will.
Fortunately, competent business law attorneys are ready to stand in your corner and fight to protect you and your interests. These attorneys can diligently investigate the facts surrounding the case and assess them with a critical eye. Then, utilizing statutory and case law, a competent legal professional can determine a strategy for how best to approach your case. Then evidence will be gathered, witnesses questioned and the rules of evidence at trial will be utilized to further that strategy.
Many business disputes end up settling out of court, thereby avoiding contentious litigation. However, you should prepare your case like it's going to trial. That way you will know the strength of your case when you sit down at the negotiating table. An attorney, like those at our firm, can help you gauge the strength of your case and can discuss strategies for negotiating a favorable resolution or litigating in court.
