Litigation

litigation

Litigation is the general term that refers to the process of utilizing courts of law to resolve legal disputes between individuals, partnerships, incorporated entities, and other businesses. In pursuing and defending claims in court, there are numerous rules of procedure, and strict guidelines that govern at every step of the way. At Bearnson & Caldwell, our attorneys are experienced in navigating the legal landscape, and helping you to take the course of action that will achieve the best available outcome.

Nearly everything we do has the potential to need resolution through court action.  A few of the more common areas that Bearnson & Caldwell can represent you on include:

  • Professional services disputes
  • Wrongful termination
  • Theft of trade secrets or misappropriation
  • Landlord-tenant disputes

If the parties to a dispute are unable to resolve their differences, litigation may unfortunately be unavoidable. When you find yourself or your business in a legal dispute and headed for litigation, having skilled and experienced litigators and trial attorneys looking out for your best interests can mean the difference between a favorable result and an undesirable outcome. The attorneys at Bearnson & Caldwell pride themselves on being not just litigators, but problem-solvers with the ability to efficiently and effectively resolve your case.

There is a limited window of time in which disputes may be presented for litigation. Failing to take action may ban you from legally pursuing your claims.
