Find the right Business Disputes attorney in Corpus Christi, TX

Business disputes in Texas often happen in several different areas. Frequently businesses disagree on the exact terms of prior contracts or arrangements. Also, billing issues and property matters can give rise to disagreements in the business setting.

What to Do in a Business Dispute?

The first step when involved in a business dispute in Corpus Christi, Texas should be to review any documents relevant to the matter, such as contracts. It may have already been decided in these documents how disputes will be handled. If there are no dispute resolution clauses in the contracts, or there are no attending documents at all, the parties may always resort to the courts to resolve the dispute. Where the parties have not agreed beforehand about how to handle disputes, legal principles have been designed to determine the resolution. When they are called upon, Texas courts try to discover the best resolution by looking to the facts of the particular situation presented. Disputes over contracts and other agreements are handled differently depending on the laws of each state. Attorneys in Corpus Christi know the laws of Texas, and can offer individualized advice for those involved in business disputes. An attorney's knowledge of the law may also lead to a more streamlined discussion with the other business about how to resolve the dispute. Negotiations may even enable you to resolve the dispute without going to court.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Contracts often have clauses requiring that a dispute be handled outside of court. This is called Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR, and it includes Mediation and Arbitration among others. ADR focuses on reaching the same resolution that a court would have, without the parties actually going to court. Methods of ADR often involve their own protocols, sometimes bringing in a third party to find a solution based on local law. In Corpus Christi, attorneys specialized in ADR can help if your business dispute is to be resolved out of court.
