In business, there’s always the possibility of being involved in litigation. Your lawyer will no doubt offer timely advice, but here’s a tip that can save you a lot of dollars and possibly save your business, too.

The last thing you want or need is to be spending an enormous amount of money on court costs – this may sound the death knell for your business. Think constantly how you can resolve the matter, not only before you get to court but while you’re there.
