Avoid Commercial Litigation, or Be Prepared For It, By Carefully Documenting All Incidents
While commercial litigation is wonderful business for our new model law firm, we will always do our level best to assist clients in avoiding controversies, or at least resolving them short of litigation.
From experience, we would say business people need to retain all records and build a complete file as if they are planning for eventual litigation.
The more carefully, and thoroughly, a business can document the file, the less likely the business is to have litigation, and the more likely any litigation is to settle early and favorably.
So, as they say, always hope for the best but plan for the worst and keep comprehensive records, keep any and all notes, and build a file.
The more thoroughly a business keeps records, and takes notes, the less likely the matter is to end up in litigation. And if it does end up in litigation, the sooner the matter is likely to settle and the more favorable the settlement is likely to be.
