Strategic Business Litigation: Alternative Dispute Resolution To Civil Court Trials

Most business disputes are initially subject to resolution by negotiation. Some contracts mandate resolving matters using alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation or arbitration. But maximizing legal remedies for damages and loss to your business often requires presenting a case before the court.

Experience matters when taking on a lawsuit. At Declues, Burkett & Thompson, APC, our trial attorneys draw from decades of experience to provide premier legal representation.

Civil Lawsuits Can Make A Significant Difference Between Profitability And Insolvency

Contract litigation can seek compensation, performance or cancellation of contracts where a breach such as a misunderstanding or substandard work is in dispute. A lawsuit may seek compensation for additional damages such as when a breach causes other foreseeable losses. A civil lawsuit may also seek punitive damages when a party’s breach is egregious.

Typically settling lawsuits prior to trial or in arbitration or mediation can be less costly than taking a dispute into trial. Whatever the method, our attorneys are here to get your business back on track as soon as possible. We can defend a lawsuit against your business or file one on behalf of your company.
