At Gentry Business Law, LLP, we understand that no California business wants to be involved in litigation. It is expensive, time-consuming and takes your attention away from your business operations. Disputes can be unavoidable, but that does not necessarily mean that your matter must proceed to trial.
We take a proactive approach to business litigation, seeking to resolve matters as early in the process as is feasible, and as favorably as possible. Our attorneys performs discovery and analyzes your chances of success, and then provide you with the information you need to make well-informed decisions about your case.
We are often able to resolve cases through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration. Reaching a negotiated settlement is often best for both parties involved because it saves, time and money, and it keeps the results out of the hands of a judge.
If a settlement cannot be reached, however, we can take your case to trial. Our attorneys have the trial experience necessary to protect your business’s rights in court. We represent plaintiffs (those suing another party) and defendants/respondents (those being sued) in corporate litigation.
