Understanding the Stages of Commercial Litigation

Filing the Complaint and Serving Notice: 

The litigation process commences with the plaintiff filing a complaint and serving the defendant with a summons, initiating the legal action.

Responding and Pleading:

The defendant acknowledges the legal dispute complaint by admitting or denying the allegations and can file a counterclaim.

Discovery Phase:

Both parties engage in the discovery process, gathering evidence, requesting documents, and conducting depositions.

Resolving Factual Disputes: 

Post-discovery, unresolved factual disagreements are addressed.

Settlement Attempts:

Before trial, negotiation and compromise are explored for potential resolution.

Opting for Settlement: 

Often, disputes are settled without going to court, allowing parties to retain control.

Trial as Last Resort: 

In cases of unresolved disputes, the final decision is left to the court.
