For many business owners, their businesses are not just valuable assets, they are a reflection of immense pride and endless hard work. Business disputes are not just disruptive, they can be expensive. An unsettled dispute can have dire consequences for businesses in Florida, impairing the closing of a deal, a business’ operations, reputation, along with other risks. The Markarian Group employs key principles and safeguards to avoid business disputes if possible, and the experience to win them soundly and efficiently in Court where necessary.
For many business owners, their businesses are not just valuable assets, they are a reflection of immense pride and endless hard work. Business disputes are not just disruptive, they can be expensive. An unsettled dispute can have dire consequences for businesses in Florida, impairing the closing of a deal, a business’ reputation or operations.
The Markarian Group employs three key steps to avoid business disputes if possible. First, we use sound, simple and clear agreements that document parties’ intent, address key risks unambiguously and provide ways to decide issues or disputes (e.g. valuations) that might arise in the future. Second, we always propose that mediation be required prior to instituting suit, and that mediation be repeated within 60 days of the filing of suit. By the end of 60 days, the cost and slow pace of litigation tends to drive all but the most stubborn disputes toward resolution. Third, in the event we are forced to pursue ultimate relief in court, we utilize an efficient approach to streamline pleadings and claims, avoid wasteful disputes with opposing counsel, obtain vital discovery and get before the ultimate decision-maker as fast and as efficiently as possible.
We begin the process of putting together our strategy to win, assembling useful evidence and testimony on Day 1. When a commercial business dispute looms, working with the right experienced attorney to guide you in your business dispute is critical. The Markarian Group will work with you to avoid disputes through proper planning and crafting of agreements that properly assign risk, but also represent you vigorously in court, when called upon.
The moment that a business dispute arises, take action to call our law offices to speak with us to get a perspective on how to approach and resolve the problem. Waiting until the dispute has grown to greater proportions can make it more complex, time consuming or expensive to resolve. With offices in Palm Beach Gardens, Wellington, Vero Beach, Viera, Delray Beach and Miami, we are available to take any action or provide our advice in response to your business dispute. We also offer same-day consultation by also taking advantage of secured video conferencing and other technology solutions to assure safe, confidential and efficient collaboration.
