Commercial Litigation Cases
Our seasoned Northern Virginia commercial litigators handle a variety of cases. Common cases we litigate include:
Commercial Litigation Process
The process for commercial litigation varies slightly based on the jurisdiction and type of case. However, assuming the case was not resolved through out-of-court settlement efforts, most cases follow a general format that begins with filing a complaint. The defendant receives the complaint and through an attorney files a response. The defendant might also choose to file a counterclaim against the defendant.
Next, your Northern Virginia commercial litigator will start the discovery process. Both sides acquire and gather information to use for the trial. You may have to give a deposition during discovery. Your attorney can also attempt to settle the case on terms you approve after reviewing the evidence compiled during discovery. If the case does not settle, you will proceed to trial. Your commercial litigator might try the case in front of a judge or a judge and jury.
How to Avoid Commercial Litigation
Sometimes, litigation is the only possible course of action. However, a Northern Virginia commercial litigator from PJI law can also help you protect your company by taking steps to avoid litigation. Taking these steps will reduce your risk of having to litigate a dispute in the future.
First, never sign a business contract or agreement without first seeking legal advice. Your attorney will review the agreement and advise you on changes if necessary. Also, document everything so you will have proof against claims. Finally, consult with an attorney before making any changes to your business. We will guide you through the process to ensure that you meet all legal guidelines.
