Tennessee Commercial Litigation Attorney
Litigation is an inevitable part of running a business. When not handled properly, however, litigation can bankrupt a company or cause valuable employees to flee. Some companies prevail in commercial litigation only to see their reputations take a hit with the public.
Commercial litigation is any type of litigation involving a company. At Brezina Law, we can handle the full spectrum of commercial litigation, providing advice on how to keep your costs low and preserve evidence to bolster your case.

How We Protect Your Business
Litigation involves more than representing a client in court—though we do that. Any lawsuit poses certain dangers to a business, and we work closely with our clients so they can protect themselves.
For example, the discovery process in litigation can result in exorbitant expenses if not handled properly. The other side might request massive amounts of information, which could be time consuming and expensive to produce. We can request that a judge limit discovery which is overbroad.
Discovery also risks exposure of valuable trade secrets, such as customer lists, product information, and business strategy. Other proprietary information, such as employee salaries, could cause problems if made public. Protecting this information is important, otherwise a business could “lose” even if they win the lawsuit.
We can also seek to enforce an arbitration or mediation clause in a contract. These alternative dispute resolution techniques are private, shielding your company from prying eyes of journalists and competitors. They might also help save your business money as we work toward a resolution.
There is no reason to break the bank for all business disputes. Sometimes, settling a claim is the appropriate strategy from a financial standpoint, even if you think you are right on the law. At Brezina Law, we ensure our clients always understand the different ways of resolving a dispute, including a confidential settlement.
Important issues regarding forum and venue can also increase the costs of litigation. If you formed a contract with a vendor in California, for example, the other side might try to boot the case to a California court when a dispute breaks out. Litigating in a distant forum is expensive, so we strive to keep the dispute close at home.
We are also prepared to litigate a dispute to a jury verdict, if necessary. Sometimes, there is no way to settle a claim because too much is at stake. We have the experience necessary to present your case in a coherent way that supports your side of the story.
