If you are a victim of a breach of contract, with our help you might receive compensation. An experienced attorney will help to recover punitive or compensatory damages, rescission, incidental damages, and your lawyer’s fees and costs.

How does commercial litigation start? 

  • Parties may need to utilize commercial litigation if they have already executed other methods of disagreement resolution. Negotiations and Mediation usually appear before the parties turn to litigation. For the process to start, the plaintiff will normally collaborate with an attorney and write a complaint. The complaint will illustrate the allegations against the accused and the actuality of the situation. After that, the plaintiff will issue the complaint to the accused or multiple defendants, and file the complaint with the court. The defendant will have to abide by the law and answer to the complaint. In their answer, they can plead for a counterclaim against the plaintiff.

Parties may also need to give a testimony to the council. To inspect if the case has to go to trial, conferences will take place in the court. Usually, the case is resolved by the parties before the trial. If it is not resolved, the case will eventually go to trial. Finally, in a trial, all evidence, claims, facts, and legal documents will be evaluated then judged by the court.

Who decides a commercial litigation case? 

  • A jury will deal with the commercial litigation lawsuit. The parties can relinquish the jury and turn to a judge to hear their case. To choose between having the case handled by a judge or jury should be a calculated and strategic decision regarding the type case. A case can also be heard by an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators.

  • The duration of the process depends on numerous factors included within the case. The kind of issue mirrors the length of the litigation. Adding to this, the length of the process can involve the amount of motion practice that takes place. If the parties resolve the case before trial, they save their selves a lot of time. Generally, the average case takes about a year, but can last longer due to its unique situation.

Can I appeal the results of my case? 

  • Generally, a party is able to appeal the case. However, only questions of law than could have affected the decision will be considered by the court. The court will not review the reasoning for the decision or the case’s facts. They can look into other aspects in case the judge did not perform justly or provide the exact instruction to the jury. Usually, you will be given the chance of a new trial if you win the appeal. However, it is not granted that you get a new result.
