Business Debt Collection
If you are having a commercial litigation dispute with a business or company in Florida, be mindful that most cases never get to trial. A recent study found that only 5-10% of all commercial litigation cases ever go to trial. This is significant. Why do cases not go to trial?
- Cases are settled before a lawsuit is even filed
- Cases are settled after a lawsuit is filed
- The Court dismisses a case based on no valid legal claim or some legal argument
- The case gets abandoned
As a commercial litigation attorney in Florida, part of my job is to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a client’s business dispute to see how to best effectively represent the business’s interests. There are also several reasons for vigorously prosecuting or defending a commercial litigation case. This includes:
- Collection of a debt owed to the company
- Suing another company to protect the intellectual property rights of the Plaintiff
- Defending a claim that has no merit
- Defending a claim with some merit, but trying to settle the case for better terms because of some valid dispute
- Setting precedent for future cases
- Suing a company for breach of contract for money damages or specific performance
A commercial litigation case may have specific time limits too in which to file a lawsuit or respond to a lawsuit. For example, if your company has been sued over a breach of contract in Florida, you may only have up to 20 days to file a response or the Court can default you regardless of whether you have valid defenses.
