Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Litigation

Q: How long will the lawsuit take?

A: It varies. The length of time a lawsuit takes depends on a number of factors, such as the complexity of the case, the number of parties involved, the willingness of the parties to resolve the case and the court's schedule. A relatively simple suit, not involving any complex legal or factual issues, could be over in a few months, while a complicated, multi-party suit could take years to resolve.

Q: Who will hear the case?

A: Most commercial lawsuits will be heard by a jury. If the parties agree, a jury may be waived, and the case heard by the judge. The decision of whether to have the case heard by a jury or a judge is a tactical one and depends on the facts and circumstances of each case.
