Q: How long does business litigation take?
A: There is no simple answer to this question. Every case is unique, and depending on the individual facts and what is required to establish your case, the business litigation process can take anywhere from a few months to a few years or even longer.
Q: Why do I need a “business litigation” attorney?

Q: What exactly does a business litigation attorney do for me (what am I paying for)?
A: A business litigation attorney will not only guide you through the legal process, he or she will also help take some of the burden off of you. An attorney will investigate and gather evidence, evaluate options, communicate with other parties involved in the case, and advocate on your behalf.
Q: What do I need to do to prepare for an attorney-client consultation?
A: In the business litigation process, one of the most important things you can do to help your case (and your attorney) is keep excellent records and a chronology of events related to the legal matter. Even small details or records that may seem insignificant to you can be of help to your attorney in establishing your case.
Q: What if I don’t want to go to trial? Are there alternatives?
A: In a business litigation case, you will work with your attorney to find the best option for your case. Many cases can be resolved via alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods like mediation or arbitration.
