In any lawsuit, there may be certain types of procedural maneuvers that may alter how your case proceeds. One of the keys to success, then, is making the proper maneuvers in response to the actions taken by the other side in your case. Your opponent may try to convince the judge in your commercial litigation case that it is, for example, entitled to a dismissal when it actually isn’t. To be sure your case doesn’t get wrongfully derailed before you even get to trial, be sure you have the skilled and experience of a knowledgeable South Florida commercial litigation attorney on your side.
For example, take this recent case from Broward County. In the lawsuit, a New Jersey-based entity and a Maryland-based entity were involved in a legal action that included several commercial claims, including “fraud, breached fiduciary duties, converted funds, and intentionally interfered with an advantageous business relationship.”
In this suit, the plaintiffs asked the trial judge to sever the claims against the Maryland entity and one individual defendant from those against all other defendants. The judge ruled in the plaintiffs’ favor.
