Bet the Company Litigation – Colorado Commercial Litigation Lawyers

Bet The Company Litigation - Colorado Corporate Litigation Attorneys - Burg Simpson Colorado For most entrepreneurs, the only thing scarier than starting a business is being forced to put that business on the line because of litigation so serious that it threatens the entire fate of the company. While it can sound a little misleading, “Bet-the-Company” litigation is any type of litigation that threatens the company’s continued existence. This can include the loss of key talent, a government investigation, or a civil judgment that could render the company insolvent.

For better or worse, this type of trial work is on the rise. “Bet-the-company” litigation has quadrupled since 2014, according to research from BTI Consulting Group. If your company has been caught in a “bet the company” case, and you need legal help, call the Colorado corporate litigation attorneys at Burg Simpson now at 303-792-5595.

“Bet-the-Company” litigation can take many forms, all of them costly. A few of the more common types of these cases include:

  • Minority shareholder litigation: These cases can result in the sale of the company – or parts of it – to appease a minority shareholder judgment or demands.
  • Trade secret litigation: An ex-employee who has absconded with company trade secrets can fall in to this area of law.
  • Intellectual property litigation: If a company is prevented from doing business because they are unable to rely on their own intellectual property generally falls into this category.
  • Product liability cases: Lawsuits over a potential product liability could threaten the future livelihood of a company.
  • Industrial accidents: The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is just one example of how a large-scale accident could put a company at risk.

This type of litigation can remake the entire landscape of a company, whether it involves contracts, corporate or partnership law, securities, antitrust, intellectual property, or product liability. Involvement in this type of high-stakes, complex litigation, whether as a plaintiff or defendant, demands a sophisticated and multi-faceted approach that can be too much for in-house counsel. These cases can involve several interested parties, such as investors, shareholders, and regulatory entities. These cases can even include multiple jurisdictions, such as both state and federal authorities. Aggressive, powerful, results-oriented advocacy is required, and the Colorado corporate litigation lawyers can help. Call Burg Simpson today at 303-792-5595 to discuss your case.
