With the recent economic crisis forcing businesses to conserve capital, funding expensive litigation can be daunting, if not impossible. Yet, business is not without conflict.
The age-old adage that “it’s not personal, it’s business” is just not true. An individual’s business can be very personal, especially right now, as it oftentimes encompasses both your passion as well as your livelihood. Running a business – or engaging in business – typically demands giving 100 percent to every transaction, investment, idea, and partnership, as well as to your employees, clients, vision, brand, name and/or reputation.
However, the business world is inevitably fraught with disputes when things don’t go exactly as planned or promised. Without the capital to fight these disputes, a business can be forced to resolve legal issues that arise on their own, settle on unfair terms, or even forgo the pursuit of meritorious claims.
