Alternative Dispute Resolution, Arbitration, and Mediation

Many times commercial disputes can be handled via alternative dispute resolution methods (arbitration or mediation). In fact, your employment contract, business partnership agreement, or another applicable document may even require that you resolve the dispute with these methods. Do you still need a commercial litigation attorney?

Companies should retain the services of a qualified commercial law attorney even if they are using alternative dispute resolution methods. There are a variety of reasons why:

  • An attorney can provide legal advice tailored and develop a solid, smart legal strategy.
  • An attorney can make sure all of the necessary paperwork is filled out correctly and filed promptly.
  • If mediation doesn’t work and you end up needing to go to court anyway, you already have a litigator in your corner who is familiar with the nuances of the case and the opposing party (Nothing slows down your momentum like needing to switch lawyers in the middle of a case)


How to Hire a Commercial Litigation Lawyer 

To find the best available commercial litigation lawyer in your area, you’ll need to vet at least three potential candidates. Loyalty is fine, but it’s unrealistic to assume that your “go-to” lawyer is the best candidate for every single legal issue you or your business faces. If it’s time to interview a few new candidates, here is what you’ll need to ask to properly vet them:

  • How do you approach cases like mine? (Is this lawyer a negotiator or a fighter?)
  • Will you personally be the one handling my commercial dispute until it’s finished? 
  • Have you ever met my business partner/employee or whoever will be on the other side of this dispute? 
  • How many cases like mine have you done here in New Jersey? How many of those settled without having to go to court? 
  • May I see a copy of your contract? 
  • Will I be notified of and involved in any major decisions regarding my case? 


Legal Fees for Commercial Disputes

Unlike other civil legal matters, you will typically not be able to hire a commercial litigation lawyer on a contingency basis. This means you will pay as you go. Be sure to understand the lawyer’s fee structure clearly. Will there be a retainer? What’s the hourly rate, and is it negotiable? Is a flat fee something that could be arranged? You can even ask to see a sample bill, so you know what to expect to be charged for copies, envelopes, mailings, phone calls, and so on. Also, be sure to ask if there are other fees you should be aware of (filing fees, potential damages or penalties, etc.).
