When do I need to hire a business litigation attorney?
A business litigation attorney can help you handle various disputes such as intellectual property issues, breach of contract claims, business torts, shareholder lawsuits and employment litigation, among others. The earlier you consult with an attorney, the more time we have to develop a winning case strategy.
In Minnesota state court, a plaintiff can wait for up to a year before filing the summons and complaint with the court. But this does not mean the lawsuit hasn’t started. A lawsuit officially begins once the defendant is served. A defendant usually has 21 days to respond to the complaint. Both parties proceed to discovery once the answer has been served. Depending on the circumstances, discovery may last anywhere between four to eight months. Then the attorneys discuss whether to ask for a summary judgment. However, if neither party can establish the critical facts of the dispute, then the case goes to trial.
