The number one job of a business litigation lawyer is to take a lawsuit to trial and try to win the case. Business litigation attorneys may represent large or small corporations in product liability lawsuits or lawsuits filed by disgruntled employees. They may submit a motion to take a lawsuit to court if neither side can work out a settlement. Then a business litigation lawyer will go through all the motions of a trial, including representing their client in front of a judge or jury.
Any corporation, large or small, may need to hire an attorney to help them negotiate their ways through contracts, different types of lawsuits, and negotiations in and out of the courtroom. A business owner may be sued by a client that is dissatisfied with their product, or a former employee that believes their contract was wrongfully terminated. In this case, the owner would need to hire a litigation attorney that will negotiate a settlement out of court, or file a motion to take the case to court, and will then represent the owner of said business, in the hopes of convincing a judge or jury that they are on the right.
