What Is Complex Civil Litigation?
Under Florida law, a complex legal action is one that involves one or more complicated legal or case management issues. These types of cases require significant amounts of judicial case management to move the matter along, including motions, hearings, and discovery. Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.201 gives specific details as to what courts use when deciding whether a legal action is considered complex. These factors include whether the action will require multiple pretrial motions, whether multiple parties who are individually represented are involved, whether the case will involve pretrial management of many witnesses or documentary evidence, and whether the action will require a significant amount of court time to complete a trial on the issue, among several other factors.
What Does a Complex Civil Litigation Attorney Do?
Civil litigation involves several different phases, including investigation, pleadings, discovery, pretrial proceedings, potential settlement or trial and appeal. A complex civil legal action requires the assistance of an attorney who is well-versed in managing a complicated civil case from start to finish. A complex civil litigation attorney works with multiple parties in a legal dispute, practices in several different areas of civil law, and is adept in handling challenging legal discovery. It is the attorney’s role to ensure that the case is a successful one for the client throughout all portions of the proceedings.
Complex litigation can cover different specialties, including business and corporate litigation, real estate litigation, and commercial disputes, as well as insurance disputes. It takes an experienced civil litigation attorney to seek out and sort through the discovery needed to win the case, including coordinating witnesses and aligning testimony to satisfy the burden of proof, which is why it is important to have a skilled complex civil litigator on your side.
Complex civil litigation involves more than just advocating before a judge or jury. These types of cases can involve multiple parties, extensive discovery, numerous witnesses, and plaintiffs and defendants who are geographically dispersed. When handling negotiations and settlement offers, an experienced complex civil litigation attorney will advocate for the client or clients ensuring their best interests are represented and achieved through dispute resolution. If the matter cannot be settled outside of court, the attorney needs to be skilled in preparing and litigating the case through trial. Due to the complexity of these cases, it is important to have an attorney on your side that has extensive trial experience, who can effectively guide you through each stage of the process.
