Business Disputes

Resolving Personal Injury Claims


Fear of unknown outcomes is hard to deal with, whether a business owner is a plaintiff or defendant in a litigation matter or legal dispute.

A plaintiff in a lawsuit has typically lost something because of another party's wrongdoing: money, security or opportunities. A defendant, on the other hand, often contends that accusations are exaggerated or flat-out wrong. In either side of a business dispute the goal is to resolve the issue, but with a keen eye on the dollars that will appear at the bottom line.

Diminished business profitability and mounting legal fees are threats to the ongoing strength and security of a business. Hiring quality legal counsel is essential. Business law attorney Thomas C. Watts works closely with clients through all phases of litigation and dispute resolution, including:

  1. Protecting a business's good name

  2. Devising promising strategies for resolving the dispute favorably

  3. Preparing a client for necessary steps such as filing motions, responding to motions or preparing for mediation or arbitration when applicable

  4. Educating a client, helping him or her be ready to make key decisions in a case such as whether to go to trial or resolve a matter without or before a trial
