What is the best Approach to defending your case?
When defending a commercial lawsuit, the best approach is to first find the strengths and weaknesses of your case. The opposing side has filed a case based upon the burden of proof that the law requires. Defending your case means first understanding the allegations claimed and find both the strengths for your defense and the weaknesses on the other side. Without this approach, defendants often find themselves at risk in a lawsuit.
What if the other side has a strong case?
Filing a commercial lawsuit first means that the plaintiff could have a prima facie showing that the case should go forward. However, the law allows certain legal defenses that you must explore. If you have a viable legal defense, then regardless of how good the complaint is, you still have a chance to successfully win the lawsuit. However, if the plaintiff’s case is substantially strong, and you run the risk of not having a viable legal defense, you have the option to try to settle the matter. This can save tens of thousands in litigation cost.
How do you prepare for litigation?
For each case, the parties should gather as much evidence as possible to support their position. If you are involved in complex commercial litigation, the discovery process can further reveal the strengths and weaknesses of your case and the other side. Stating your position on court documents is one thing. However, having actual evidence to support it makes the difference in winning of losing.
What are the disadvantages of litigating?
In litigation practice, court cases are generally published. Corporations or individuals like to stay away from being in the news or media.

What is the cost of litigation?
As a defendant in a commercial lawsuit, if the plaintiff is seeking monetary damages, and the risk of having a strong defense is low, the cost means that you can end up paying your defense attorney representation fees. If you are in a breach of contract dispute which has an”attorney fee” clause, then if you do not prevail, you will also have to pay the other side’s fees. The cost of a lawsuit can be tens of thousands of dollars not including what the plaintiff seeks as damages.
