Is Commercial Litigation the Same as Business Litigation?

How Long Does Business Litigation Take?

When a summons gets served, a business has a short time to respond. Often it is 21 days for federal court and 30 days for state court. Some venues may have shorter deadlines. 

Once the business responds, the legal process can still be long before trial. On average, it can take 24 to 30 months once the case gets filed before getting brought to trial.

Often the judge will wait for an answer from the defendant before sending the case to trial. But, sometimes the judge will set the case for trial without delay.

Once litigation has begun, the process can still take several months to a year. You will want an excellent commercial litigation attorney to smooth out the process. This time also gives you and your legal team time to prepare.

Business and Commercial Fraud

Divorce Cost

Roughly half of the small businesses are subject to suffering from fraud at some point. These can run up to costs of $144,000 per incident. These losses can be devastating to small business owners. Even worse, the most common version of fraud is in the form of an employee embezzling from the company. Sadly, trends show that fraud is continuing to rise with financial pressures on individuals.

While business fraud looks at the unfair advantage of business owners, owners can be guilty of consumer fraud. These are seemingly legitimate business practices that result in financial or other losses by consumers. These forms of fraud can include false advertising, unfair pricing, and safety concerns.
