    Default When someone sues your company, do this

    What You Should Do When Your Company is the Subject of a Business Litigation Lawsuit

    If your company receives notice that it has been named in a lawsuit, it can be an unnerving experience. Although never an ideal situation, defending a lawsuit is often an inevitable occurrence for most companies. The steps your company takes at the onset of litigation can greatly impact the success of the lawsuit and potentially mitigate future risk.

    Companies can be sued based on all kinds of allegations—from discrimination to product liability claims. No matter what the allegations of the lawsuit are, your company needs to take the following steps when first presented with a lawsuit.


    Step #1: Contact an Experienced Business Litigation Attorney
    Your company should never attempt to deal with a lawsuit on its own. The moment your company is served with a lawsuit, you need to contact an experienced business litigation attorney who is experienced in defending the types of claims you have been sued for. Although you might be close friends with a divorce attorney, having a divorce attorney defend your company in a business dispute would be risky and counterintuitive. An attorney who is familiar with the types of claims you are facing will be better postured to develop an effective defense strategy as he or she will be knowledgeable about the intricacies of business or employment dispute litigation.

    Do not wait to contact a business litigation attorney. Generally, your company will have 30 days to respond to the allegations laid out in the lawsuit. Be honest with your attorney. If you feel uncomfortable sharing certain facts with your attorney, choose another one you feel more at ease with. Your attorney can only defend your company with the information he or she has available. Even if the allegations contained in the lawsuit are correct or partially correct, share this information with your attorney.

    Step #2: Keep All Documents
    Even during times of non-litigation, companies generally have a requirement to preserve certain documents. If your company has been served with a lawsuit, it is imperative you do not destroy any documents that are associated with or could be associated with the allegations contained in the lawsuit. Your attorney will likely request copies of all relevant documents for review in order to better grasp the circumstances of the allegations and to develop possible defenses. If you destroy documents relative to the lawsuit, your company can face additional legal ramifications.

    Step #3: Do Not Attempt to Contact the Opposing Party Directly
    You may be tempted to contact the party who filed the lawsuit against your company in an attempt to resolve the allegations before the lawsuit proceeds. Do not do this. Once a lawsuit has been filed against your company, the time to resolve the allegations personally has passed. The individual or entity who filed the lawsuit is now represented by counsel. All communications to the opposing party must occur through their attorney.

    You also enjoy the protection of being represented by counsel. The opposing party cannot contact you directly, only your attorney. Once a lawsuit has commenced, you also should not discuss the lawsuit with anyone except your attorney. Your communications with your attorney are privileged and confidential; however, communications you may have with other individuals are not privileged and may be subject to discovery in the lawsuit. Your attorney will be able to properly advise you on when and how you should speak about the allegations in the lawsuit.

    Step #4: Contact your Insurance Agent
    Check your insurance coverage policies to determine if you have coverage for the type of lawsuit your company is facing. If your company is covered, call your insurance agent. You may not want to involve your insurance company in fear of increased premiums, but litigation is expensive, and this is one of the reasons your company carries insurance in the first place. Your insurance can alleviate some of the financial burden that results from defending a lawsuit.

    Step #5: Develop a Strategy
    Once you’ve found an attorney, determined whether your insurance company will be involved, and taken all necessary document preservation steps, you can begin to work with your attorney to develop an effective strategy to defend your company. You and your attorney need to carefully dissect the allegations laid out in the lawsuit.

    If the allegations have merit and can be proven, your attorney may advise you to undertake a settlement strategy that would limit the progression of the lawsuit, saving your company valuable financial resources. If the allegations do not have merit, you and your attorney need to start collecting evidence that can effectively disprove the opposing party’s contentions. If there are other parties that need to be brought into the lawsuit (i.e., other individuals or entities that contributed to the opposing party’s alleged damages), your attorney can present these other parties to be added to the lawsuit, which could limit your company’s ultimate liability.

    It is important to note that every lawsuit is different, and no two litigation strategies are the same. Your company’s defense strategy can change and often does change as the lawsuit progresses and more evidence is presented by both sides. A good business litigation defense attorney will be able to change litigation dynamics and strategy as needed.

    I would say that the information is really helpful and valuable for those who met this problem. I also was in a similar problem, but I have a very good and experienced attorney that helped me instantly. By the way, my attorney works for a law agency and if you also need a high-specialized lawyer, you can find your attorney in the company I am talking about. So if you are interested, you can check their site swpdxlaw.com and find more information. I hope you will find this information helpful. Stay safe and have a wonderful day!

    If you own a small or medium-sized business, it's unlikely that you will have a legal department in the company, but this doesn't mean that if you file a lawsuit against your company, you don't need professional help. I use the services of outsourcing companies that provide high-quality comprehensive support for my business at different stages, for example, such as VAT services Latvia, which I have been using for six months. It's really cool when you know that you have a team of experienced professionals who do their work well and help you avoid getting into trouble with the law or government agencies.
