In the last decade, entrepreneurship has gained great popularity, thanks to innovations in technology, more people have access to business resources than ever. You probably already know that stepping into the world of entrepreneurship is full of surprises and unexpected twists. According to the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, the US lawsuit system costs America’s small businesses a whopping $160 billion annually. Business litigation is of major importance and often considered too little, too late. We’ll discuss what business litigation is, why it matters, and how you can use it to ensure the success of your business.


What is Business Litigation?

Like most entrepreneurs, the creation of your business started with a dream. A dream that you’ve made immense sacrifices for, and invested countless days and nights into. Your efforts are starting to pay off, and you’re gaining some traction. Until you are hit with a lawsuit out of nowhere. This is the harsh reality many business owners face every single day. Business litigation refers to legal disputes concerning commercial or business affairs. These disputes can come in the form of contracts, intellectual property, employment disputes, and essentially anything involving law and business relations.


Why Business Litigation Matters

Unfortunately, no business is immune to the possibility of a lawsuit. Even the most prestigious businesses can find their company facing legal trouble at a moment’s notice. A report by Forbes found that 90% of all businesses, large and small, experienced a lawsuit at some point in their lifespan. A lawsuit can be detrimental to your reputation, finances, and overall operations. Neglecting to learn about potential risks could be the deciding factor in your business’s failure or success.

Luckily, Cipparone & Cipparone can help you take actionable steps to mitigate risks and make sure your business can thrive.
