Sometimes, You Need to Go to Court
If your livelihood depends on running a business, chances are that you will need to resolve some legal issue. Many times, these issues can be handled out of court, through permitting processes, or by negotiation. Sometimes, however, it is necessary to fight for your interests in court.
