The unfortunate reality in private and public sector business is that too often organizations sustain
damages due to inappropriate or unethical actions by employees, clients, legal representatives, accountants, partners, banks, and others. Despite this venal certainty, there are a number of reasons why successful business leaders are reticent to engage legal redress and civil court fact-finding as the appropriate venue to solve issues - business disputes, lack of ethics or individual/corporate wrongdoing.
The primary reason for businesses to avoid legal battles is that the courts are an expensive and complicated venue to use for understanding and assessing whether corporations:
Engaged in “wrongdoing or self-interested behavior” outside of business norms;
Abused their authority (vicariously negligent) in performing their responsibilities;
Obtained “unfair financial advantage” through dishonest actions; and
Determine whether corporations made “reasonable decisions” based on existing critical economic market factors.
It is a more forthright task for individual business leaders and board members of corporations to conceptualize and apply a “reasonable person standard” rather than a “legal standard”.
