Do I need a business litigation attorney?

If your business wants to guard against employee disputes, flawed contracts, confidentiality breaches, and more, you need to consult with a business lawyer.

When deciding whether to hire a business attorney, consider the following questions:
- Am I up to speed on all Los Angeles, California, and federal business regulations and statutes?
- Do I understand the protocols and procedures involved in protecting my business and legal rights?
- Do I have the time and resources to take on a legal project in addition to running a business?
- Will I be missing out on potential damages and possible solutions if I handle my case myself?
What types of damages can a business litigation attorney recover?
Business litigation attorneys may be able to collect a variety of damages based on the specifics of each case. Generally speaking, damages are awarded in an effort to compensate (or make “whole”) a plaintiff in the event of a contract breach.
Three common types of damages awarded during business litigation are:
Liquidated damages – Awarded based on the terms of a contract in breach.
Compensatory damages – Assigned to make a plaintiff whole, i.e., return a plaintiff to the same financial situation were the contract not in breach.
Reliance damages – Calculated based on estimates of what a business may have potentially earned or achieved without the detrimental influence of the defendant. There are two types of reliance damages:
Restitution damages – Awarded to the plaintiff based on what the defendant illegally gained monetarily
Punitive damages – Designed to discourage the defendant from future illegal action
