Earlier this month, a federal panel voted to consolidate several cases that have been filed against Home Depot in various states, including California. The panel felt that the cases, which deal with a data breach that occurred between April and September of this year, were similar enough to warrant the consolidation. This will allow the litigation to be more efficient and convenient as Home Depot itself is based in Atlanta, and most relevant documents and witnesses will be accessible in that jurisdiction.
As a business owner, your primary concern is running your business efficiently, keeping your customers and employees happy, and hopefully earning a profit.
When someone is unhappy with something your business has done, whether its a customer, business partner, a fellow business, the government, or another entity, you may find yourself embroiled in business litigation. Whether you are in the early stages of litigation or about to go to trial, consulting with an experienced business litigation attorney is the best decision you can make for your company.
What a Business Litigation Attorney Can Do for You
A business dispute can involve a myriad of elements and complaints, which is why you need to work with a professional who is knowledgeable about business litigation and able to handle your case. This will allow you to do what you do best: run your business.
A business litigation attorney will also be knowledgeable about litigation and courtroom procedures. Litigation attorneys are able to step into a courtroom and feel at home and comfortable, and they are also able to aggressively negotiate a settlement to avoid the costly trial process.
A business litigation attorney will do his or her best to keep you, and your business, from having to go in front of a judge or jury. No lawyer can guarantee that a case will not go to trial, but here at Arata, Swingle, Van Egmond & Goodwin, our attorneys will do their best to settle a case out of court.
