Litigation

Unfortunately, individuals and companies get into legal problems now and again.

 

It is a cost of doing business. Nevertheless, steps can be taken to minimize the impact on your business and personal life. There are really only two ways to beat legal problems: prevent them or defeat them. We can help you do both.

You have heard it said that the best defense is a good offense. The attorneys at Romero Park P.S. put this saying into practice. Because litigation can be such a drain on a company, regardless of the outcome, we strive to help our clients prevent disputes by drafting sound and tight contracts, such as purchase and sale agreements, license agreements, non-compete agreements, and construction contracts. When a dispute initially flares up, we strategize with our clients on the best way to douse the dispute before it turns into a raging fire. Often the dispute can be resolved through hard-nosed negotiation. We have settled many legal disputes for our clients, both offensively and defensively, without ever having to engage in a lawsuit.

If the dispute cannot be solved through negotiations, we often recommend mediation, arbitration, or some other type of alternative dispute resolution procedure. Our litigation team has settled hundreds of disputes through creative methods of dispute resolution, such as those described above. These disputes have ranged from small disputes between business partners to resolution of multi-million dollar patent infringement claims. We have successfully settled well over 90 percent of our clients’ disputes without ever having to go to trial. Litigation should be a last resort.

At some time in your business’ life, you may have to litigate a dispute. You should trust that dispute in the hands of our litigation team. They are seasoned trial lawyers who emphasize case management to obtain cost efficient results for you and your company. They are aggressive and tenacious litigators who have fought and won in the trenches. However, they never lose sight of our client’s goals so they work hand-in-hand with our clients to try to resolve the dispute as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
