In addition to any other specific aspects litigation might have, there are four primary things to consider:
- the actual damages to the extent you know them;
- the total cost of litigation, for example, the attorneys’ fees, filing charges, court costs and other expenses you’re required to pay;
- your chance of success; and,
- the investment of your personal or business time, or both.
Whether litigation makes sense at all requires a clearheaded assessment of these and other relevant elements.
