Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to file a commercial litigation claim?

It depends on the type of claim. Breach of contract claims are five years from the breach. Most fraud claims are four years from the date of the fraud, however, some fraud claims could have longer based on the discovery of the fraud. Defamation claims are only two years from the act. Given all of these different time periods, it is essential to contact a commercial litigation lawyer to protect your rights, because filing a claim outside of these time periods could result in a court automatically dismissing your claim.

What can I recover in a commercial litigation claim?

What you recover depends on the type of claim. For instance, breach of contract claims could result in expectation damages (what you would have expected to profit if the contract was completed), compensatory damages (damages to compensate the non-breaching party for their losses in the breach), consequential damages (reimbursement from indirect losses from the breach of the contract), and other possible damages. In fraud or defamation claims, businesses may be entitled to “actual damages” for their losses. Some commercial litigation claims can result in punitive damages if the breaching party’s conduct was egregious. Always ask a commercial litigation lawyer to what you may be entitled to.

Reviews

Kaya Salazar
Brett and his team were extremely diligent and professional in every aspect of getting me the best settlement possible. Brett stayed in constant contact with me throughout the entire process, keeping me in the loop at all times. He is very knowledgeable and has helped me with things outside of the settlement, solely just to be of assistance. I would without a doubt recommend Brett and his team to anyone looking for an adamant and clever attorney to get them the settlement they deserve.
Marianela Caballero
Highly Recommend - Very professional and understanding attorney!!! Thank You.
Rachel Levy
This guy is so honest. Brett has not been my lawyer, but he was a client in a marketing agency I worked in before I stepped out on my own. He called me today, compelled to let me know that a marketing strategy I am considering for a client in the same field as him is not going to be effective. He spent 15 minutes on the phone with me, giving me value that will turn into a return for his competitor and benefit my business and he isn’t even my client anymore. Why? Because Brett is a good guy. He operates with a sense of integrity that is uncommon in South Florida. If I’m ever in the situation where I need a PI Attorney, he will be the FIRST person I call.
