If you have ever received a summons to appear in court, it's wise to seek the help of an attorney. You've likely received a court document ordering you to be present in court on a specific date. This document is known as a "summons," and you should review it carefully.
You should have also received the "complaint," which is a document stating the allegations and reasoning of why the plaintiff is suing you. This situation can be understandably stressful, putting your business and years of hard work on the line. A commercial litigation lawyer will be able to guide you through the litigation process, and help you understand your legal options and how to organize and present the evidence in your favor.
At Mohammed, Shamaileh & Tabahi, LLC, our attorneys worked some of the most reputable litigation law firms in the United States. We will do everything in our power to ensure that you understand your options and we resolve the matter in a manner most satisfactory to you. Upon receiving a summons, the time starts ticking. Do not delay speaking with an attorney who focuses on commercial litigation.
What We Can Do for You
A commercial litigation case is oftentimes a dispute involving two companies over a business matter. Our team of lawyers is ready to offer you the legal representation you need to settle your dispute or prevail in court. We are here to protect your rights and achieve the best resolution.
Commercial litigation is a fairly broad term encompassing many different types of disputes, including:
- Breach of contracts
- Violation of terms of employment agreement, such as noncompete or nonsolicit
- Product liability claims
- Intellectual property disputes
- Partnership disputes
- Breach of fiduciary duty
Remember, in most counties (including Cook County), an owner of a company cannot represent his or her company in court pro se. A company must be represented by a licensed lawyer. Furthermore, waiting too long to seek help can irreversibly damage your position (for example, if evidence or video footage is lost). At Mohammed, Shamaileh & Tabahi, LLC, our team of attorneys has many years of experience handling commercial litigation cases and we will act quickly to protect your rights. There is no dispute too large or small for MST Law. Call us if you have a commercial litigation matter.
Representation in Court
Leave presenting your case in court to us. Mohammed, Shamaileh & Tabahi, LLC understands how commercial litigation proceedings take place, and we'll deploy the best strategy for your case. Based on the existing evidence, we will present your case and negotiate with the other party's lawyers.
Minimize Financial Risks for Your Business
The first thing we will do is analyze your case. We'll meet with you to go over everything that's happened, help you gather the necessary evidence to support your claim, and help you understand the legal defenses you may have. After this consultation, we'll know the best way to proceed to minimize financial risks for you and your business.
We are often also contacted by prospective plaintiffs. As the plaintiff, you have the first shot to put forth your version of the facts that will convince a judge from the get-go that you are the aggrieved party, regardless of what the defendant says in response to your complaint. Failure to file a well-pleaded complaint with the necessary evidence can result in a dismissal of your lawsuit even before getting to the discovery portion of the lawsuit (where you get to request documents and conduct depositions of important witnesses). MST Law is on your side and here to choose the best legal option for you. Sometimes a court lawsuit is best, but other times an out of court settlement is a wiser decision.
The attorneys at Mohammed, Shamaileh & Tabahi, LLC will handle all commercial litigation matters on your behalf. We conduct all necessary steps, from the proof gathering, filing of the lawsuit, discovery and trial. We will do everything in our power to minimize financial risks that could severely affect you and your company.
Prepare Necessary Documentation
Navigating a lawsuit can be tricky. You need to choose your words carefully, but even more importantly, you need to have reliable and admissible proof to show in court.
A commercial litigation lawyer will help you with this and more. Our attorneys will draft any necessary motions and pleadings as well as formulate responses and legal defenses to the other party's counterclaims and defenses. These actions are only a small part of how our team will help your case. Give us a call to learn more.
