Litigation is broadly defined as the act of resolving a dispute in the court system. The most common types of disputes to end up in litigation are personal injury or “tort” claims, divorce proceedings, landlord-tenant disputes, and claims arising from breach of contracts. Formal litigation technically starts when a lawsuit is filed with the courts, although most parties attempt to resolve the dispute months or even years before resorting to litigation.
Many disputes are resolved pre-litigation through negotiated settlements, mediation or some other form of alternative dispute resolution. If the parties are not able to resolve their dispute, litigation is usually the only way for the parties to seek relief for their claims.
Disputes between businesses can be quite costly and the results can be catastrophic for a small business owner and their families. Litigation that affects the very survival of a business is commonly referred to as “bet the company litigation.”
Facing litigation can be a stressful experience, but having knowledgeable legal representation can guide you through the process and give you confidence you need to pull through. Learn how our Nevada litigation defense team can help you with your case.

Business contracts and vendor relationships naturally entail risk. Unfortunately in spite of our best intentions, sometimes business deals don’t go as planned. When a party feels wronged, they are often left with no choice but to pursue litigation. Whether your business is facing a lawsuit, or if you need to pursue legal action against someone else, failing to take action could seriously affect your rights. If your business is served with a formal complaint, you need to consult with an attorney immediately; failure to do so could result in a judgment being entered against your business. Likewise, failing to pursue legal action against a party who has wronged your business could result in a statute of limitations barring your claims, leaving you unable to recover your damages.
