Qualifying for the “Business Court”

HNWBusiness and Corporate Legal Services, Business Law

Did you know New Jersey has a business court dedicated exclusively to commercial, construction, business and corporation cases?

To qualify, your attorney must designate the case as either (1) a complex commercial case or (2) a complex construction case.   The amount in controversy must be at least $200,000.00.  For those cases that do not meet this economic threshold, if good reasons to include the case in the program (.i.e., complex legal issues, many witnesses, unique discovery issues, etc.), a party may file a motion for inclusion into the program.

One of the really strong benefits of this option is the stability of having one judge instead of multiple judges assigned to the same case.  Our civil court system has many shortcomings so having one judge knowledgeable in business and construction cases is a huge plus.

To discuss your NJ business and corporate law matter, please contact Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. toll-free at (855) 376-5291 or email him at fniemann@hnlawfirm.com.  Please ask us about our video conferencing consultations if you are unable to come to our office.
