The Business Litigation Process

Successful business litigation requires a knowledgeable attorney with courtroom experience who understands the details of the dispute so they can effectively fight to protect your assets. Litigation begins when the Plaintiff files a Complaint and serves it on the Defendant. The Defendant files a response within 21 days. Failure to file a response may result in a default judgment against the Defendant. If your business has been served with a lawsuit, an aggressive attorney can effectively research applicable case law and file a strong response with the court within the short timeline.

After the Plaintiff and Defendant file their Complaint and Response, Discovery begins. Attorneys for both parties use interrogatories (written answers under oath), depositions (oral statements from witnesses under oath), and requests for production (legal requests for documents) to gather information relevant to the lawsuit.

If the parties do not reach a settlement before the scheduled court date, the lawsuit goes to trial. This may be a bench trial decided by a judge or a jury trial. The judge or jury must make their decision based on a “preponderance of the evidence.”

The details of the lawsuit determine which court hears your case. The attorneys at S.L. England, PLLC, can represent you in any Alexandria, VA state or Federal court.
