Need A Commercial Litigation Lawyer? Three Important Questions To Ask Before Hiring One

A commercial litigation lawyer can help you with the majority of lawsuits related to businesses. Whether you are suing a business for infringing on your trademark or a business is suing your business for breach of contract, a commercial litigation lawyer can assist you. Before hiring a lawyer, it is important to do your research on the lawyer and ensure they are the best lawyer for your case. Sitting down for a consultation with the lawyer can help you determine whether you want to work with them or not. Here are a few of the questions you should ask a commercial litigation lawyer you are considering working with. 

Do You Focus or Specialize in Specific Commercial Litigation Cases? 

Commercial litigation is a broad term. It can include many different types of business law, including breach of contract, shareholder problems, business torts, class action lawsuits, and trademark and copyright issues. When you are looking to hire a commercial litigation lawyer, ask them if they specialize in any one specific area of commercial litigation. Most do, and having one who is experienced in the area you need help in can pay off. 

What is Your Track Record With Cases That Are Similar To This One? 

One of the general questions you may think to ask a commercial litigation lawyer is what their track record is with commercial litigation cases. However, since commercial litigation encompasses so many different things, you want to narrow down that question a bit further. Always ask what their track record is with cases that are similar to yours. This helps give you a better idea as to whether they settle cases like yours most often, or whether they are able to successfully defend or win cases like yours at trial. 

What Can You Do to Keep Expenses As Low As Possible?

The last question you may want to ask a commercial litigation lawyer is what they can do to help you keep your litigation costs as low as possible. Lawsuits are expensive. And if you don't have a lot of money, they can wreck your business. Many commercial litigation lawyers are aware of this and may recommend mediating the case, settling as quickly as possible or other steps to help mitigate your damages and keep your out-of-pocket litigation costs low. 

There are so many important questions to ask a commercial litigation lawyer that you are considering working with. You want to know about their education, their working experience and the rates that they charge. However, these are common questions that you probably already know to ask. Asking the above questions, in addition to the standard questions you likely know to ask, will help you hone in on a great commercial litigation lawyer for your needs.
