The entity needs to be represented by counsel. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Counsel would normally file an answer and cross claim for indemnification and contribution against the other defendants. If there is insurance insurer should be notified and it may appoint counsel to do this.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

I was interested in risks and what might happen to my company, not a referral.
What risks are there for my company?
Thank you for answering
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 7 months ago
Risk would be a money judgment for the amount of the claim, bad press and incurring legal fees in defense.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
