The importance of competent and seasoned counsel
While we understand the importance of saving money, we would like to take this moment to point out that—especially in the complex world of commercial litigation—it is a good idea to make sure that the attorney you hire knows what he or she is doing and is able to point to a solid track record of success in the area of law you are hiring him or her for.
Commercial litigation can be extremely complicated and fact-intensive in its outcome. To this end, you need an attorney that knows what he or she is doing and—as with many other areas in life—the best way to ensure that you have the right attorney for the job is by checking his or her experience.
