No matter how well a Maryland business is doing, problems can arise. Some of those problems can result in a business dispute with other companies or individuals. These disagreements can occur for a variety of reasons, and each of them may require a different method of resolution.
However, they all may start with a legal filing in either a federal or a Maryland court. For instance, you may have a customer that failed to pay for goods or services provided by your company. You have attempted to obtain payment from the customer, but for whatever reason, payment is not forthcoming. Filing a lawsuit could bring a resolution to this type of business dispute.
There is often a substantial amount of competition in any business. As a result, some businesses attempt to interfere with the business relationships you have -- or could have in the future -- and may even attempt to interfere with any contracts you have with others. These activities and others such as fraud and unfair competition are classified as torts, which can lead to civil liability for the party or parties deemed responsible for the actions.
If your company is involved in a business dispute with another individual or company, seeking the assistance and advice of legal counsel may be in order. Whether you are the one filing the lawsuit or the one it is filed against, navigating the legal system can be complex and frustrating. The potential losses to a business can be both monetary and non-monetary. More information regarding how to protect your business is available here.
