For business owners, litigation can present various challenges, from those which are financial (legal costs, fines and a decrease in business activity following a lawsuit) to a damaged reputation. The mental and emotional side of business litigation should not be overlooked, either. A business owner may find themselves extremely stressed out leading up to a lawsuit, during litigation and even afterward. Aside from stress, other negative emotions are not uncommon, such as struggling with depression or even feeling angry or betrayed. It is essential for business owners to address these emotional challenges properly and focus on their company's future.
