Thank you for your question.

This depends on the nature of your lawsuit. Generally, a business should use an attorney to represent its interests. When a business is sued or thinking of bringing a lawsuit, the business should have an attorney representing its interests. In rare instances, a businessperson may be permitted to represent himself or herself. For example, landlords frequently appear in conciliation court without a lawyer. In the majority of cases, however, when suing or sued in a regular civil action, an LLC must be represented by counsel.
