David Leffler interviewed by Inc. Magazine on how businesses can fight back when sued

Our partner David Leffler was recently interviewed by Inc. Magazine for an article titled “So You’ve Been Sued: 3 Ways for Your Business to Fight Back.” David’s key advice is that business owners should be sure they ship around to ensure they are hiring the best legal counel for the particular dispute. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

When you’re looking for an attorney–during the startup phase or when there’s a problem looming–talk to more than one candidate. And “spend a little time talking to established business owners,” says David J. Leffler, a New York City attorney who represents small to medium-size companies on business matters. Ask successful companies in your industry what kinds of legal issues they’ve faced, how much they pay in fees, and if they can refer someone. Glanz adds that he would seek out someone with expertise on the type of trouble you’re facing, and examine how that person has handled similar cases. The vast majority of civil lawsuits ultimately settle pretrial, so make sure to look at how a potential lawyer has dealt with that process before, he says: “If you know, statistically, that you’re going to settle this case, are you going to pick the lawyer who settles a week before trial or the lawyer who settles within a month?”
