Domestic violence was a part of my family's life for years. When I made the decision to leave with my children, I had to rely on the law to provide the protection we needed. Sometimes, the system does not work as fast as we want. I soon learned that going at it alone without any guidance caused significant delays. I created this blog to help others who are seeking legal means to deal with an abusive ex. By making the right moves, it is possible to get the necessary protections in place so that you can also live a happier and healthier life.
Going up against a larger business in a court case is never easy. A large business is likely to have more resources that they can allocate to a single court case. What might be the most important case in your life may just be another day for a larger business. Winning when faced with such odds isn't easy, but it's not impossible. Many small businesses have taken on larger businesses and won. How can you increase your chances of doing the same?
Hire the Right Representation
Hiring the right lawyer is, perhaps, the single most impactful decision you can make when you're going against a bigger business. To win in such cases, you don't just need a lawyer who knows commercial law; you need someone who specializes in commercial litigation.
Someone who has lots of experience taking on such cases and winning will have, not one, but several strategies that they can choose from. They'll know what factors will make the most difference and what approach will have the best odds of success.
Anticipate the Costs
Taking on a large business can be an expensive affair. You may not need one lawyer but a whole team of lawyers. The cost can also go on for a long period due to the other side's tactics or other factors in the case. All this could mean a lot of expenses for you. Being short on money in the middle of such a case can put you at a serious disadvantage. Talk about these costs with your team to ensure you're sufficiently prepared financially.
Keep Records of Everything
Whether it's a memo or a receipt, a single document could make or break your case. A single document could be what holds the rest of your documents and evidence together. If you're poor at keeping records, you could lose track of such a document. You should develop a habit of keeping meticulous records, so you're always ready in the event of such cases.
Have Everything Ready for Court
It's one thing to have everything, and it's another to have what is needed in court when it's needed. A court case can quickly turn in the other business' favor simply because you can't produce a key witness when they're needed to testify.
Whether it's a document or a witness, ensure that you have them ready. If the person or document is needed during the case, you should be able to present them within the required time. For more information, contact your local business litigation attorney.Share
