It is vital to promptly recognize warning signs that your partner or customer has become a potential adversary before litigation commences. Time is of the essence from the instant you sense a dispute is forthcoming. Discreetly gather all
pertinent paperwork. Do not discuss or disclose intentions and strategies.
Understand that every tidbit you share – with anyone may be exposed in discovery or in a deposition.
Ask your adversary to put his demands in writing. You may be closer to negotiating an amicable solution than you imagine. Even if you are very far apart, written demands will clarify his or her position and identify the issues. You should defer putting your position in writing until after you retain your attorney.
