Preparation is Half of the Battle
If you are a business owner, you are bound to encounter circumstances where you need to consult a lawyer. However, preparation is truly half of the battle. If, prior to entering into an agreement, you consult an experienced lawyer, you can save yourself much time, money and hassle down the line.
Litigation is often time consuming, expensive and taxing on your mind and emotions. However, there is help. You can minimize or avoid the chances of litigation by intelligently negotiating the terms of your agreement and making sure adequate safeguards are included in the contract. Understanding the salient points and their consequences, you will know what points to negotiate and what to let go. You can also recognize potential pitfalls to compliance and performance under the contract. This will save you lots of time, money and emotions is significantly less than when litigation starts.
