At The Richardson Firm, we are experienced in litigating and resolving a wide variety of business and business related disputes. We understand that litigation is taxing on clients and is often cost prohibitive on persons or business entities. Factors for such limitations may include the nature of the case, complexity of issues, number of litigants, and monetary or other damages the litigant(s) seek to recover in the case. Because of these factors, legal representation must be efficient. Our firm prides itself on efficiency in the experience of our partners, associates and staff. We employ technology to assist with document review and case management so that our lawyers can focus on the facts and issues in your case.
At The Richardson Firm many of our business clients are small businesses. As small businesses, they often experience growing pains and need representation to either defend themselves against a dissatisfied person or another business threatening to or pursuing litigation or, on the other hand, to pursue action of their own to protect and/or enforce contractual rights. We also help individual consumers protect themselves in the similar respects. As our client, you may never be aware of these efforts taken on your behalf, but you will certainly notice our attention.
