Business litigation and mental health

While it is well known that businesses targeted by legal action may face significant financial penalties, there are a host of other issues that can surface for business owners. For example, the mental toll of a business lawsuit can be devastating, especially for someone who is already dealing with mental health challenges. Moreover, the amount of pressure that someone experiences as a result of a business lawsuit can be so severe that it may even cause people to develop mental health problems, including depression and anxiety. As a result, it is imperative to focus on mental health if you are facing a business lawsuit.

From unhealthy levels of stress to crippling depression that makes it seem impossible to even get out of bed, these are just a few of the difficulties people may encounter as a result of business litigation. Every case is unique, however, the emotional toll of some business lawsuits can be so severe, they can leave people emotionally wrecked. Sometimes, people who have been struggling with depression and other mental health challenges for years are absolutely devastated when their business is taken to court. The amount of pressure, frustration and uncertainty during this difficult time can be absolutely overwhelming. Therefore, it is vital to ensure regular contact with a healthcare professional to maintain stability during such a pressing time.

If you are worried about a business lawsuit and your mental health, or any other challenge as a result of legal action, you should carefully prepare for your case. Our law office knows how complex these matters can be, especially for business owners who have never dealt with court before.

What Our Clients Say

Starting a new business can be a bit scary. Aside from worries of failure, there’s also the hassle of making sure all legal paperwork are properly filed. I reached out to Mr. Wang (Tommy) because of his excellent reviews and reputation and I am so glad I did. He was thorough and meticulous in answering all of my concerns and took time to find out special laws and policies regarding the kind of business I am starting. I could focus on the daily practical side of starting my new office without worry because I felt Tommy was reliable and took my case seriously. My business is opened and it’s all been a smooth start because of Tommy’s help. I have plans to start another business venture in the next few years and I already know I’ll be coming back to Wang IP Law.

I came to Tommy for help reviewing a licensing agreement I had secured with a well-known manufacturer. Tommy made sure I understood all the details in the contract and he negotiated with the company to improve my side of the deal. I mentioned to Tommy at my first consultation that we were looking to expand throughout the US and were investing a lot of money to make a big entrance into the market. I did not think I would have my store open so soon but Tommy also has connections with the local area and realtors to help me secure the location for my first store in the Los Angeles area. Tommy works a lot with the local businesses and he understands how to transition from the Asian market to US market. Within 8 months my store was open for business and fully operating. I must recommend Tommy to any business owners looking for help with contracts and improving their side of the deal. Tommy has the knowledge and experience to make sure there is a smooth process to open for business here, and make sure that your company is set up for success.


I think Tommy and his team by far considered the best people to work with in my 16 business years. Beside quick responses to all my inquiries, they also done things right and providing very professional solutions. I’m highly recommending Tommy and his firm to all business owners.

I have been working on my Utility Patent for almost 4 years. I have hired and fired two very reputable IP firms because with all their expertise and reputation for being some of the top firms in IP Law, I felt a lack of connection and care in my product, time and financial investment. Then I found Tommy and his team. Tommy does not waste time. He and his team are professional and extremely thorough. After 4 years, I finally found a legal team that I felt spent the time to really understand the components of my utility patent. Tommy also very mindful of cost and how and where my money would be better spent. I really feel I am in great hands with Tommy and his team. They have been patient with my revisions. And most importantly, they made me feel that they fully understood the importance this patent is to me. It has been a great and comforting pleasure working with Tommy.
