Virginia Business Litigation Lawyer

The last thing you need as a business owner is a lawsuit. Issues with contracts, accounts payable/receivable, disgruntled minority shareholders, oppressive majority shareholders, theft of corporate secrets or intellectual property, improper or inadequate corporate structure are all issues that take up vast amounts of time resolving that could be spent bettering your company instead. That sounds so obvious. The time, use of human and monetary capital to address the suit, the fact that the suit always hits at the most inconvenient time, and knowing the drag the suit has on making your business profitable are all reasons that a lawsuit against your business is the last thing you need or want to add to your plate. What isn’t obvious (or well known) is that most suits are either preventable or with proper planning the impact of them can be minimized.

The secret is planning. The experienced business attorneys at Parks Zeigler will perform a business triage. We will review your articles of incorporation, operating agreement or bylaws, minutes, human resource policies, contracts, and other necessary documents to give you a full picture of what is being done right and where you need to improve. A well-drafted contract or corporate documents can often prevent a suit from being filed against you, greatly increase the effectiveness of your defense if the suit is filed against you, or can put you in the driver’s seat if you need to file a suit.

The trusted, seasoned Virginia business litigation lawyers at Parks Zeigler can help you with your corporate legal needs while saving you time, money, and helping you strengthen and protect your business.

Why Do I Need a Business Litigation Attorney?

Unfortunately, it is common for business owners to take a more passive “wait and see” approach when it comes to dealing with business disputes. For most, there is no need to act unless a legal dispute arises, meaning there is action only on fear of litigation.

Business litigation can be tricky— there is plenty of aggravating minutiae and red tape in contracts, the governing documents of a business, and other regulations that have the potential to cause trouble. The threat of litigation is ever-present. The threat of “You will hear from my attorney” has ended too many phone calls. Being unprepared can force you into making hasty decisions before a full analytical review of the issues is done. Often, a quick or ill-informed decision can make the problem worse. This usually results in a great expenditure of time and money to fix these decisions.

You need a business litigation attorney in Virginia ready to work with your team proactively— he or she can help you find the “holes” or vulnerable parts of your business that may be impacted by litigation and advise you on how to best protect your company.
