“One is not relieved of his obligations simply because he made a bad bargain.” Bernardi v. Bernardi, 417 So.2d 382, 383 (4th Cir. 1982).

It is in the area of commercial litigation that best illustrates the importance our mission: to protect our client’s interest in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Few disputes involve million dollar claims with litigants prepared to pay any price for victory. Most disputes involve damages and costs of litigation one party is able to more easily bear than the other. Since over 90% of lawsuits settle prior to trial, it is important to allocate resources to uncovering the truth, focusing on the real issues, and getting to the bottom line: resolving the dispute.

There are numerous tactical decisions which must be made throughout the course of a business dispute. By keeping you informed, you have the opportunity to help control the cost and pace of the litigation.

If you are in a dispute, please call Ray Ladouceur or Lindsey Ladouceur to schedule a free initial consultation to determine if we can help you. (985) 898-2131, ext. 1000.
