lawsuit.jpgNo California business wants to face the tremendous hassle that comes with a lawsuit. If your company is being sued for any reason, whether it is a part of a contract dispute, a partnership dispute or an employment law issue, dealing with a lawsuit can be incredibly frustrating. The first thing you need to do is to consult with an experienced San Jose business law attorney. Your attorney will be able to determine what needs to be done to protect your company's legal rights and business interests. From there, you need to be sure to handle your case with due care. To help, our team has put together a list of four of our best tips for companies facing litigation.

1. Stay Organized

Similar to a lot of other things in the business world, organization is one of the keys to successfully defending any type of lawsuit. One of the most common mistakes that business owners and operators make is simply losing track of important details regarding their case. It might be misplacing important evidence or forgetting a key date; regardless, lack of organization can cost you a lot of money in the end.

2. Keep a Detailed Calendar

Preparing for business litigation often requires building a comprehensive timeline. Once you catch drift of the fact that your company is facing legal action, or even the threat of legal action, it is a best practice to start keeping a detailed, chronological calendar of all potentially relevant events. This will be a big help as the case moves forward in the legal process.

3. Keep Notes of All Relevant Conversations

Did you know that your notes can be used as evidence? In fact, contemporaneous notes, meaning notes taken at the time that a conversation occurred, are considered to be a very strong form of evidence. If you have any conversation that could be relevant to your lawsuit, please be sure to take extensive notes.

4. Obtain and Secure All Available Documents and Records

Finally, there is really no substitute for documents. Try your best to get copies of all relevant documents and records that are related to your case. Your California business litigation attorney will be able to assess these documents and records and determine how they can be used to help you defend the impending lawsuit against your firm.
