What is complex litigation?
Any litigation case can be complicated, but the term “complex litigation” does not refer to the difficulty of the case. Complex litigation is a specific type of large civil case that a company may face. These cases encompass court battles with large amounts of money at stake, multiple parties in multiple jurisdictions, lengthy trials, and complex legal issues.
Complex litigation cases are often the types of lawsuits that bring unwanted media scrutiny to your company. The cost – in time and money – is usually high, whether or not you win the case. Class action lawsuits and sale of goods agreements across state lines are examples of complex litigation.
How can I mitigate the impact of complex litigation on my business?
Complex litigation cases can easily drag on for months – even years if you’re not careful. For small- and medium-sized businesses, this can be especially disastrous as it drains much-needed resources away from your company.
Complex litigation requires a massive amount of due diligence and an in-depth understanding of all the laws and regulations which may come into play. A good attorney will analyze your case and present you with all of your options. In some cases, an out-of-court settlement or a summary judgment may be the best course of action to protect your business’s assets and reputation.
Is mediation covered in the Complex and General Litigation practice area?
It depends on the specifics of your case, but in some cases, yes. Mediation is when two parties attempt to settle their dispute out of court. However, in some cases, the court will have to approve and legally record the final decisions. When you seek mediation, you should still have an attorney present to guide and advise you and to ensure that your rights are fully protected.
