In our last post, we talked about a contract dispute between Charter’s Spectrum and Fox Networks Group over the channels carried by Spectrum in the wake of a changing contract and a rebrand by Spectrum (once Time Warner Cable). It is a convoluted story, but the point is this: the dispute threatens to harm consumers, and this directly impacts how companies are perceived and how they can perform in the marketplace.
Taking in the greater picture, businesses face many different threats — realized or subjective, self-inflicted or imposed upon them — and these threats can hurt their bottom line, impact their ability to hire skilled workers, reduce their chances of retaining experienced workers and generally complicate their legal situation.
Business litigation is not something any business wants to go through, but it is also an essential part of operating in today’s economy. Every company is out to protect their interests; their intellectual property; their contracts; and their assets. If you aren’t looking out for yourself in today’s business world, no one else will.

For more than 30 years we have worked on cases that involve contract disputes and breaches, partnership and shareholder disputes, intellectual property claims, employment law cases, franchise disputes and many other aspects of business law.
You have to look out for your own back in this cutthroat business world. Having experienced legal counsel to help you and represent you when litigation is necessary is a crucial part to protecting yourself.
