Business lawsuits can take many forms. As a business owner, it’s important to know how various types of lawsuits begin and what options you may have. At the end of the day, you may need to utilize lawsuits to protect everything you have worked so hard for thus far.
One example, which experts call the most common lawsuit, is a dispute over a contract. This type of lawsuit often means there is a claim that someone breached that contract and did not fulfill their obligations. For example, you may have to sue a vendor or a supplier if they miss a delivery that consequently costs you an important sale.
Other lawsuits often arise over the terms of a lease. This too is a contract dispute, but manifests a bit differently. Perhaps the landlord told you that you could renovate the property, for instance, but now that you signed the lease, they’re not letting you make the changes you need to improve your company.
Similarly, intellectual property lawsuits can also involve business owners. Maybe you have a trademarked logo and someone else is using it to sell similar products. Perhaps you have trade secrets for several recipes that were stolen by a former chef. Maybe your copyrighted material is being used by a third party. These are just a few examples of intellectual property lawsuits that can impact your business.
Finally, there are some cases where you can sue over poor reviews. If the review is false and consequently costs your business, for instance, you have suffered a financial loss that can potentially be addressed with a lawsuit.
