Should You Pursue Litigation?

Litigation is risky. When a business dispute requires legal action, it can be difficult to know how it will turn out. Jury verdicts are not always favorable and settlements cannot always be negotiated. No matter how skilled the lawyer or how clear-cut the case, there is always the risk of loss.
