Modesto Business Law Law Firm

Modesto Business Disputes

Even the most minor business dispute can lead to litigation. A quick out of court resolution to a business dispute is not always possible. It helps when the parties can work together to resolve a business dispute, but this is not always the case. Mediation and arbitration are alternatives to litigation. However, these alternatives may not always be in the best interests of the parties involved. There are situations where the parties cannot come to a meeting of the minds and retaining a Modesto business law law firm becomes necessary.

Character of Your Business in Modesto

The manner in which your business was formed plays an integral role in how the business handles legal issues. A corporation, by law, requires the assistance of a licensed attorney to prosecute or defend against legal claims in court. The owners of sole proprietorships and partnerships may be held personally liable for the debts and obligations of a business. The officers and directors of a corporation owe a duty of loyalty and a duty of care to a corporation and can be held liable for violating these duties.

Regardless of the character of your business, it is recommended that you consult with a diligent, knowledgeable and experienced Modesto business law law firm when your business encounters a legal dispute. The very existence of your business may be in jeopardy.
