IRISH BUSINESS LAW
If Your Business Is Sued
What do I do if my business has been sued?
- Call our offices, as we will have more information on what actions you should take next.
- Gather information in a reasonable order.
- Compile a list of phone numbers and addresses of interested parties and witnesses.
- Prepare a written statement of your position.
- Make photocopies of all documents and have originals or photocopies for our offices.
- Do not hide anything from your lawyer. The sharing of information relating to the case will be paramount in defending you.
- File an insurance claim, even if it appears as though the situation is not covered under your policy. This can save you and your attorney time and effort.
- Do not talk about the situation with anyone other than your attorney.
- Investigate the situation, if needed. In some employee-brought lawsuits (such as in sexual harassment lawsuits), an employer has a duty to investigate the claim.
- Find out how personally liable you are and call your lawyer about this aspect.
Create a defense plan and keep yourself informed of the situation.
The goal of our firm is to provide honest, courteous and diligent representation while striving to keep your legal costs down and making the legal process as easy as possible on you.
