Our firm's business attorneys work with businesses of all sizes to protect and enforce their legal rights. Generally under Virginia law, a business or a business owner cannot represent the business in court without a legal representative, with the exception of the limited circumstances identified in Virginia Code § 16.1-81.1. Certain corporations; pro se representation. As a result, it is incumbent on the business to obtain an attorney to represent it in litigation. In fact, if the business owner or business proceeds to attempt to represent itself, these actions will be seen as void with no legal effect before the Court. As a consequence, the business may suffer a default or it could lose its claim if the statute of limitations has expired in the case.
