Most businesses bring a civil case to court because they believe they have a good chance of winning the case. Most of the time, if you are sure you will lose, you will probably settle out of court. But what happens if you do lose in court? It does happen, and that's why an appeals process exists.
Because losing is a possible outcome at trial, working with a lawyer who plans ahead is always a good idea. Even as you are preparing your trial case and doing everything you can for a successful outcome there, you and your lawyer might also want to begin building a strong appeal foundation should the need arise to use it.
