Do I Need a Lawyer?

Many business owners who attempt to tackle a business dispute without the assistance of a qualified attorney quickly realize that they are spending all of their time dealing with the dispute rather than running their business. In doing so, a snowball effect can begin to form, affecting employees, customers, and ultimately the stability of the business.

The importance of hiring an attorney when you face a business dispute cannot be overstated. It does not matter if you are facing a minor dispute with an employee or a contract dispute with a shareholder in your business, business litigation in Texas is incredibly complex.

How to Resolve Business Disputes Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our team of lawyers will work hard to resolve your conflict as quickly as possible so you can return to the task of running your business properly. Whenever possible, our attorneys make use of a neutral third party to facilitate the settlement of a dispute. An Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, can include a range of dispute resolution procedures.

In Texas, ADRs are subject to certain limitations but do provide a general framework for the enforcement of prior agreements between two conflicting parties. That being said, the state of Texas does have a unique and comprehensive framework known as the 1987 Texas Alternative Dispute Resolution Procedures Act or the "Act."

The Act outlines simple procedures to encourage the early settlement of litigation while preserving the existing rights and protections of the parties involved. It may be used by an attorney in Austin Texas before a lawsuit is filed as the first step in settlement negotiations or late in the litigation process.

Many clients facing commercial litigation view arbitration as a preferred method to resolve a dispute. Offering many advantages over litigation, arbitration is a legal process of resolving a business dispute between two parties outside of the Texas court system. Arbitration is similar to a trial in that each side must argue their case before an arbitrator. However, advantages include a higher level of control by the parties involved, lower costs, a shorter resolution time frame, flexibility, and privacy.

When facing commercial litigation in Texas, mediation is a conflict resolution process that is facilitated by a neutral third-party. The mediator does not render a decision or provide an evaluation of the dispute but enables the exchange of information and settlement alternatives between the parties involved. Mediation is useful in that it is characterized by a cooperative, business-like setting that lays the groundwork for constructive communication.
