“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets planning.”

— Thomas Edison


If your business is named in a lawsuit, you need to formulate a plan of defense, based on sound business and legal judgment that addresses issues such as the following:

  • Do you have the appropriate business liability policy in place?

You need an attorney to speak for you to ensure you get the best possible results.  The attorneys at Schwartz Manes Ruby have the experience and skill to successfully handle business litigation.  They take the time to know the details of your company and achieve the positive results you need.
