Successful California business owners may relate to a recent disagreement that iPhone maker, Apple had with Finnish company, Nokia. The contract dispute has reportedly ended, but not without a struggle. Often, such situations can be diffused when a savvy business owner understands the importance of hiring aggressive legal assistance to negotiate (or litigate, if necessary) a solution.
The central focus of the Apple versus Nokia contract dispute was intellectual property. Apple told Nokia it would no longer pay for use of its patents. Apple also claimed Nokia committed extortion.
Nokia said many of Apple’s products, including iPhones, tablets and other electronic devices, contained its patented property and that Apple needed to pay for what it uses. When these types of disagreements arise, and a lot of money is at stake, tempers can become quite heated in court. Both sides are obviously trying to protect their own interests.
That’s where keen insight and experience can come in handy. A California attorney who knows the ins and outs of contract litigation can protect a business owner’s rights without compromising the bottom line. Those who wish to obtain the best results in the least amount of time possible typically hire aggressive representation to act on their behalves. Regardless of whether a particular business owner is fighting against accusations or is attempting to right a wrong that’s been committed against his or her company, retaining the help of a business and commercial law attorney is often a crucial factor in obtaining a successful outcome.
