    Settling vs. Going to Trial in Business Litigation

    In your case, you may have the option to settle outside of court. However, handling a dispute in a trial could also be advantageous. How do you know which is best? 

    Below is information about the advantages and disadvantages of settling and going to trial:

    Trial advantages:

    • Secures a binding decision from a judge or jury
    • Offers the opportunity to present evidence, make arguments, and defend your reputation in a public setting
    • Makes certain legal remedies, such as punitive damages, available 

    Trial disadvantages: 

    • Formal court processes can be lengthy and result in higher legal fees and associated costs
    • You do not have control of a judge or jury’s decision
    • The publicity of a trial may be damaging to your organization’s reputation

    Settlement advantages:

    • You can settle disputes through mediation and arbitration, which are generally less time-consuming and costly
    • Mediation and arbitration are much more private than trial
    • You can retain control over the outcome of your case in mediation and collaborate with the other party to reach a mutually agreeable solution
    • By selecting your arbitrator, you can have a clear idea of how they will handle your case 

    Settlement disadvantages:

    • Certain mediation decisions may not be binding
    • Mediation and arbitration could be unsuitable for your dispute and limit the legal remedies you can seek

    If you would like to consult our attorney about your options for pursuing or settling litigation, contact us. Our lawyer, Sonya Tien, is a seasoned litigator you can count on to steer you in the right direction.
