How We Resolve Business Disputes
In some cases, good communication among lawyers can correct the misunderstandings that led to the parties’ dispute(s). Other cases require additional work and time to ascertain facts, research applicable law, and negotiate with the other party.
While we work to resolve differences short of litigation, this is not always possible. Lawsuits are the result of the parties’ inability to resolve differences prior to the statute of limitations, or one party’s abandonment of the settlement process. In some situations, business clients need immediate relief to redress the commission of wrongs that threaten their business. In these situations, a lawsuit contains a request for a temporary restraining order and/or preliminary injunction. This is a request for the court’s intervention in protecting your business while a lawsuit runs its often-lengthy course prior to the court making a final decision.
We engage in Florida’s available alternative dispute resolution processes that may or may not be suitable for your particular situation. These include collaborative agreements, mediation, and arbitration. The goal of alternative dispute resolution is to save the parties time and money. As a client of Attorneys’ Title Services, LLC you will know all of your options.
Parties can reach settlement even while a lawsuit is pending. Statistically, most cases do reach settlement prior to trial. When they do not, the lawyers at Attorneys’ Title Services, LLC ready themselves for a courtroom contest. If a frivolous lawsuit has adversely affected your company, we will review your options in seeking compensation from the frivolous party. (A “frivolous” case in Florida is essentially one that a court deems unsupported by facts or by Florida law and does not warrant a modification or extension of the law.)
