Litigation

Your business is your livelihood. It’s our business to protect it when you’re faced with contract or employment disputes.

In 25 years of service, Frank has helped businesses save their budgets, avoid going under, or resolve complex partner issues. The stakes are high, but we’ll work with you to you determine an approach that gets you back to productive work as quickly as possible.

Whether you’re facing an employment-related lawsuit or action from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or Department of Labor, there are three factors we’ll help you consider before pursuing litigation or a settlement:

  • Your tolerance for conflict
  • Your budget
  • Your ultimate risk

We work with our clients to take the emotion out of the equation, laying out a five-minute synopsis of options. From there, we’ll outline a logical set of steps that works in your business’s best interests. In most cases—95 percent, in fact—this means a settlement. Unless there’s a good reason, it’s best to resolve an issue before heading to trial, whether through arbitration, mediation, or even a few calls.

An unnecessarily combative approach rarely works in an employer’s favor and misses the bigger picture. By going to trial, you’re putting your fate in the hands of a judge or jury unfamiliar with your business. You’re also committing to hours of evidence collection and discovery. It’s an expensive prospect—especially if you lose your case.

We understand the risks involved and can help you decide on a course of action that’s best for your bottom line, allowing you to focus on your business and what you do best.
