Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kind of damages are involved in a business litigation matter?
A: Damages may include what are called consequential damages, which involve the loss of the bargain in the business relationship or damage to profits that otherwise would have been earned but for the other side’s misconduct. If the person bringing the business litigation case is an individual, there may also be available what are called general damages, which include, emotional distress, injury to peace and happiness, and similar damages; however, corporations cannot recover these damages because corporations as artificial entities are not human beings and do not have human feelings. Compensatory damages in the nature of general damages are only available to natural persons, that is, human beings.

Q: Is the case worth hiring a lawyer for?
A: This is a dollar and cents issue. It should be decided in consultation with a lawyer. Sometimes the cost of pursuing a business litigation claim outweighs the benefit to be gained. You do not know the answer to this question until you’ve had your consultation with a lawyer who can explain the details and technicalities involved.

Q: Can my small business stand up to a major corporation?
A: Yes, with the right attorney who is not intimidated by Big Business or their lawyers from Big Law Firms. This office has litigated a number of cases against Big Law Firms and obtained significantly good results for our clients.

Q: How is the attorney fee determined?
A: In business litigation cases, the fee is normally an hourly rate basis, with the reimbursement of expenses, in a case where we represent a Defendant. On the other hand, in cases where we represent the Plaintiff we have a variety of fee options: (1) a normal hourly rate, together with the reimbursement of expenses of litigation and costs; (2) a straight contingency fee arrangement, with reimbursement of litigations expenses and costs; (3) a blend of a reduced hourly rate in combination with a reduced contingency fee, with normal reimbursement of litigation and costs. These options are discussed between the client and the attorney in conference here at this office.
