How long do business litigation & commercial disputes typically take to resolve?

Arrow icon

The timeline for resolving a business litigation case can vary widely depending on various factors, including the complexity of the dispute, the court's schedule, and the willingness of the parties to negotiate a settlement. While some cases may be resolved relatively quickly, others can take months or even years to reach a resolution.

Will my business dispute need to go to trial, or can it be resolved through negotiation?

While every case is unique, many business disputes are resolved through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods without the need for a trial. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and will work diligently to pursue a favorable settlement for your business. However, we are prepared to represent your interests in court if litigation becomes necessary.
