Written Discovery In Cook County Commercial Litigation

In this article, our Cook County business litigation lawyers explain written discovery in commercial litigation. Written discovery consists of interrogatories (written questions), requests for production of documents, and requests that the other party admit or deny certain facts. The purpose of written discovery is to reduce the number of issues at trial and allow the attorneys to understand the other side's position, paint the other side into a factual corner, and prepare for depositions.

Who Bears The Attorney Fees In Cook County Business Litigation

In this article, our Cook County commercial litigation attorneys explain which party bears attorney fees in business disputes. The general rule is that, win or lose, each side bears its own attorney fees and court costs.  However, if the litigation is the result of a contract dispute, the losing side may be required to bear attorney fees if the contract so provides. Certain statutory claims like consumer fraud also require the fees to be shifted to a losing defendant.

Using Motions to Dismiss to Quickly Dispose of Business Litigation

In this article, our Cook County commercial litigation lawyers explain how motions to dismiss can be used to dispose of unmeritorious business lawsuits. The first step in initiating business litigation is to file a complaint that states facts leading to a cause of action that would entitle the plaintiff to damages. If the defendant can show that the complaint fails to state facts leading to a cause of action or if there is another affirmative matter that would cause the case to be dismissed without a trial, the court will grant the motion to dismiss, potentially terminating the litigation in the early stages.
