Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Litigation Matters

FAQ: How long does it take to resolve a commercial litigation matter? 

As in many cases, the answer to this question depends heavily upon the specific case and the client’s goals.  We may be able to resolve some issues successfully via negotiation or alternative dispute resolution processes, and these cases resolve more quickly than those that require formal trial for successful resolution.  If trial becomes necessary, the court calendar and availability of witnesses will come into play to impact the time necessary for resolution—and the time period involved is only magnified for commercial litigation matters on appeal.  In all cases, our experienced lawyers work with you so that we understand your goals—for example, if expedient resolution is a primary objective, we can employ a strategy designed to resolve the case more quickly.

FAQ: What should I look for in a commercial litigation lawyer? 

In addition to significant and successful experience in the courtroom, it is important to look for a commercial litigation lawyer with a diverse and broad range of experience.  Commercial litigation matters may involve both criminal and civil issues, application of the law to a unique and complex set of facts and even the involvement of parties in different jurisdictions, such as in cases involving multi-state business disputes.  You should also value the advice of a lawyer who is committed to working with you to thoroughly understand all of your goals in engaging in commercial litigation in the first place to ensure the best possible outcome in your case.
