Litigation and Disputes

At some point, your company may face a lawsuit or allegations that could lead to a lawsuit or a criminal investigation. Are you prepared to deal with that scenario? As corporate counsel, you may not have as much experience with litigation as you do with corporate issues, but it will be important to understand the legal issues involved. Whether you handle the matter yourself or involve outside litigation counsel to handle the matter, you are responsible for managing the initial response, as well as the case and its outcome. Learn more about how to prepare and guide your company through these issues in the Litigation and Disputes section of FindLaw’s Corporate Counsel Center, which provides information on matters such as Civil Litigation, Criminal Litigation, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), and related subjects.
