At Kasan Law, we represent businesses and individuals in a wide range of commercial litigation matters. Kasan Law provides legal services to businesses of all sizes, including start-ups, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and private corporations.
Generally, commercial litigation matters occur when there is a disagreement between outside businesses or within the company itself. In any business setting, business owners must contend with many issues, including financial, employment, internal and external contract disputes, and owner disagreements. Corporate and business litigation might be necessary to resolve disputes, either through defending against or prosecuting claims. If they are not handled properly, the company’s stability and future can suffer negative consequences.
Kasan Law understands that commercial litigation matters have the potential to derail a company and cause financial loss to owners, employees, and other interested parties. Our attorneys are sensitive to the economic and mental strain that litigation involves and are ready to assist in protecting the business’ interests and future.
Disputes involving business owners or professionals can arise from various circumstances requiring them to engage in, defend, or prosecute the dispute. In business litigation matters, disagreements can occur between other companies, individuals, or within the business.
In both Illinois state court and federal court, our litigation attorneys handle corporate and business disputes that have varying levels of complexity, such as:
In any commercial litigation matter, a business litigation lawyer is crucial to protecting the business’ rights and interests. We keep clients informed through every stage of their commercial litigation case.
At Kasan Law, our Chicago and Illinois commercial litigation attorneys understand the legal process and our clients’ needs. We approach each matter with the mindset the case is going to trial. However, we understand that pursuing or defending a commercial litigation matter through trial can be expensive, stressful, and time-consuming. Before resorting to litigation, we believe our clients should have the ability to explore all viable options to resolve their dispute cost-effectively.
In addition to the courtroom, we represent clients in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, arbitration, and pre-trial settlement negotiations. Mediation is a process by which the parties to a dispute attempt to resolve their differences by involving a neutral third-party mediator. Mediation is generally voluntary and involves the use of one individual, often a former judge, that familiarizes themselves with the facts, dispute, and arguments. The mediator provides a neutral view of each party’s strengths and weaknesses in the case. The mediator attempts to move both parties toward an amicable resolution.
Any information provided in the mediation cannot later be used in court proceedings, which is why mediation presents a safe and neutral ground for resolving a case. If the parties do not resolve their dispute through mediation, they can proceed with arbitration or litigation.
Similar to mediation, arbitration is a process that attempts to resolve disputes outside the courtroom. Unlike mediation, arbitration is more formal than mediation, but less formal than courtroom litigation, and is typically binding on the parties. If the arbitration is binding, any ruling rendered in the arbitration proceeding is legally enforceable, in the same way, a court’s decision would operate. During an arbitration proceeding, typically, three neutral and impartial arbitrators hear the evidence, arguments, and testimony from both sides and make a binding decision, similar to a trial.
If alternative dispute resolution is unsuccessful in resolving the matter, Kasan Law’s Chicago and Illinois commercial attorneys are prepared to litigate the matter to final judgment, whether we represent the plaintiff or defendant.
At Kasan Law, our approach to lawyering enables us to efficiently provide creative, flexible, and individually tailored solutions to each client’s specific needs and legal issues. We understand that any lawsuit, including commercial litigation, can be stressful and costly, both in time and money. We provide reasonable hourly fee arrangements and, if possible, flat-fee, hybrid, and contingent fee litigation services. Our consultations are free and carry no obligations.
