Brittany Lawrence Featured in Rochester Business Journal Article on Litigation Risks for Businesses and How to Mitigate Them

Brittany Lawrence, partner, was featured in the Rochester Business Journal article “What Businesses Need to Know About Future Litigation Risks,” for which area litigators weighed in on what they’re seeing as the biggest risks for businesses and what they suggest owners do to avoid or mitigate them.

About what she enjoys about her work as a broad-based litigator, Brittany said, “Personally, I enjoy finding practical solutions to problems clients are facing. It’s rewarding when I can help clients resolve their disputes so that they can go back to running their businesses, which is what they really want to be doing.”

The major potential risk Brittany identified for companies today are contract-related disputes, which can stem from a wide variety of things, such as poorly drafted contracts, businesses not following the terms of a contract, or modifying a contract. Brittany advised companies to seek legal counsel early on to avoid “distracting, expensive, and time-consuming” litigation. Ideally, parties will work toward a solution that works for both sides through pre-suit negotiations. Brittany gave some tips businesses can use to avoid contract disputes entirely:

  • Work with legal counsel to create clear and unambiguous contracts.
  • Create processes and procedures to ensure contracts are followed as written.
  • Approach disputes in a practical way if and when they arise.
  • Seek and involve counsel as early as possible when a dispute arises.
