Business litigation is a broad legal category, covering all the legal disputes that might develop as a result of a company’s commercial and legal relationship. Business litigation is concerned with business and commercial disputes.

Business litigation includes internal relations with employees and contractors, as well as external relations with other companies, vendors, customers, and state and federal agencies.

Among the most complex and constantly changing areas of the law, business litigation is an area in which experience and education make a huge difference in determining effectiveness. A successful business needs to employ an attorney with a full command of the law and an intimate understanding of the business’s dealings.

Business transactions are rife with complex legal issues. It is important to have attorneys on your team with years of experience who can provide insights and advice into the legal consequences behind your everyday business dealings.

A good transactional lawyer will counsel you and your staff on all the legal issues that arise in the course of your normal business and will also engage you on the non-legal goals and potential impact of your transactions. Transactional law includes areas like contracts, business formation, mergers and acquisitions, and patent licensing, to name just a few.

Legal issues arise constantly in the course of business. For example, every time your business hires or fires an employee, and every time you ask your staffers to sign a noncompete or nondisclosure agreement, there are legal concerns involved. Transactional lawyers will help you with these issues. They will help with the process of crafting a business plan, registering as an LLC, or entering into an agreement with a new vendor.

To be most effective, you need to work with a lawyer who truly understands your business. You’ll want to build a strong, lasting relationship with your attorney so that you can trust them to understand where your interests are and pursue the best possible path for you.

The laws surrounding human resources are increasingly complex, and failure to comply with these laws can result in serious problems for your business. This is another area where it is crucial to work with a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of the law. Ideally, you want to find someone who not only understands the law as it is written but who also has experience working with the law as it is put into practice.

Human resources compliance includes areas like employee contracts, training, and handbooks, as well as questions about how much responsibility employers have for any inappropriate actions taken by their employees.

Human resources compliance covers wage law and unemployment compensation as well as occupational safety and substance abuse testing policies. Broadly speaking, it covers just about every facet of the legal relationship between employers and their employees.

Companies of all sizes, from startups to large corporations, sometimes forget about the importance of human resources compliance. Many businesses tend to be staffed by close-knit groups of people, and there’s a temptation to think of the company as a family. However, as the business grows or shifts and more employees come on board, complications can easily arise. In any case, it is always a good practice to ensure that the business is compliant with all legal requirements.
