Even in commercial disputes, getting a lawyer involved early can help the parties keep perspective so that a simple matter does not get blown up out of all proportion. A good lawyer can keep you from making concessions that would hurt your case if you can not amicably settle, prevent critical evidence from getting "lost", witnesses from changing their mind, and avoid conduct that can land you in trouble, or expose you to dangers you had not considered.
