Litigation Lawyers in Los Angeles Protecting You From Beginning to End
Litigation is the process of resolving disputes by filing or answering a complaint through the California court system.
Litigation involves an unbiased attorney, sometimes a panel of attorneys, in fact, that help two or more parties negotiate, and work through a specific legal dispute. This is typically a necessary step when one, or multiple parties, cannot agree on terms related to the dispute at hand.
When an issue must go to court, the overall process can become lengthy, costly, and complex— laden with unknowns and uncertainties. Involved from the beginning, your chosen litigator will conduct the following:
- Pre-trial work
- Trial representation
- Appeal, if appropriate
Litigation attorneys will solicit witnesses, investigate, and use interrogation methods and a barrage of other tactics to build your case. This begins to demonstrate the involved, step-by-step process required, as well as the purpose of skilled, knowledgeable, and reliable litigation attorneys with trial knowledge and proven methods and results.
You can find all of this and more at Pacitti Law Firm.
What Do Litigation Lawyers Do?
Companies sue companies for a variety of matters. In entertainment, in particular, companies sue for copyright infringement, misconduct, contract disagreements, partnership disparities, intellectual property theft, and much more.
If your company is sued, it’s your responsibility to resolve the matter, which can be costly, complicated, and risky without a litigation lawyer representing you. To add to this, some cases that go to litigation go on for years, which could significantly disrupt your business in more ways than one.
Los Angeles litigation lawyers are hired legal professionals that take legal action against people or organizations. They’re involved in all phases of the litigation process, from beginning to end. They manage minor and significant legal concerns, such as lawsuits, and are hired to defend your brand and resolve the dispute between you or multiple companies involved.
Litigation attorneys work with companies big and small, as legal disputes aren’t bound or specific to company size.
Why Might I Need a Litigation Lawyer?
Lawsuits are costly to your bottom line. They cost your business time and money, especially true if they can’t be resolved outside of court.
Public disputes also are known to garner media attention and can have a negative impact on your company’s reputation if overlooked or mismanaged. Along the same lines, lengthy, drawn-out legal battles can ruffle the feathers of investors and shareholders and other important relationships to your business, which might hinder your value or ability to raise or keep funding.
From every angle, your bottom line is at risk without an experienced business litigator—such as Pacitti Law Firm—going to bat for you and your business.
Litigation lawyers offer an array of services, though they typically get involved in:
- Managing legal disputes and disagreements as it relates to contract negotiations
- Breach of contract when the opposing side infringes on your agreement
- Assisting with employment and labor laws and related issues
- Disputes related to partnerships
Additionally, should you find yourself in a more complex legal case that cannot be settled outside of court, our skilled litigation lawyers will be at the ready to fight for your interests.
What Questions Should I Ask When Hiring a Litigator?
Hiring the right or wrong litigator could make or break the outcome of your trial. It’s an intense situation and process, for that matter, and demands a certain type of legal professional to handle and manage your litigation case.
The five most important questions, according to legablaze.com, will help determine if a litigator is the best fit for your needs:
- Litigation experience—and get specific: What type of litigation experience do they have? What type of cases do they work on?
- Litigation background, in numbers: How much litigation experience, do they have?
- Trial experience:Have you appeared before a judge or jury before for cases? If so, how many/how often? What about other types of cases?
- Litigation style: How would they describe their specific style and approach? How does their style work (or work against), in their own words, the opposing side?
- Litigation rules: Do they have knowledge about key litigation rules in court? This goes hand-in-hand with style, as you should find out if your potential litigator is too aggressive, which might cause contention in the courtroom—and work against you, not for you.
Additionally, as litigation is quite different than other legal services, ask your potential litigation attorney what costs might look like. Some cases can drag on for years, and as such, these attorneys don’t work the traditional “billable” hours.
Knowledge, background, style, and a general understanding of rules in court will help you build an initial impression for the potential litigator you choose, enough to help determine who might be the best long-term fit in fighting for your company.
