Business Litigation

A couple of years ago, a couple who’d started a restaurant had a $100,000 dispute with their landlord. They’d been litigating the matter for a while. They had spent over $100,000 in attorney fees and costs and were still not close to resolution. They wanted a second opinion. They wished they’d pursued other options of resolution rather than litigation, as the case now made little sense since the litigation expenses had equaled the dispute’s value, but the matter was well short of resolution.

This is a common story in business litigation: it’s often difficult to economically litigate business cases such that the litigation ultimately makes economic sense. The well-heeled always have the advantage of greater resources. In some cases, however, there may be an attorney-fees provision in a contract or at law, which provides a potential levelling of the field because the loser in the case will have to pay the other side’s attorney fees.

So, in business disputes, Mr. Larson looks to provide a resolution and litigation posture and process that makes economic sense for the amount at issue. Oftentimes, a carefully executed, circumscribed litigation approach will provide cost-effective results without breaking the bank.

"I've had the pleasure of working with Bill since 2004 regarding various legal matters with varying intensities over the years. I've found Bill to be professional, intelligent and spot-on. His legal advice has been thorough and well thought out with a keen attention to detail. I'm deeply grateful to Bill for always steering me in the right direction. Not only does Bill have a keen legal sense but he is also kind and has a good heart. He listens to me, really listens, and tailors his advice to what is important to me. Bill has the rare gift of having both a heart and finely tuned legal smarts. I've been extremely happy with Bill representing me and couldn't imagine using anyone else."
