Commercial Litigation Compared to Civil Litigation
The roots of commercial litigation are similar to other legal processes you might already know about, like a personal injury claim. To begin your case, you should first retain an experienced attorney who will gather facts, research all applicable laws, and formulate the claim on your behalf. While the claim is pending, you can attempt to negotiate a settlement or fair conclusion before going before a judge and jury. If the claim does not resolve amicably for your business, you can consider escalating things to a lawsuit.
Where commercial litigation differs is primarily in the fact that the disputes involve businesses rather than individuals. This caveat makes most commercial cases much more complex than civil litigation cases. Specialized knowledge and extensive experience in the topic matter is required to confidently pursue a conclusion.
The time involved with commercial litigation can be unique as well. Several of the phases during the commercial litigation process can continue for longer periods of time than most civil actions. To avoid even further delays, you should work with a lawyer that truly understands all the inner workings of commercial litigation, like the team members you can find at Murray & Murray.
