It’s difficult to give a concrete answer to this, as there are many factors that will dictate how long your case will take to conclude. All claims have a limitation date, which means there is a time limit for how long the claimant has to bring the case to court. For example, a breach of contract claim has a time limit of six years from the date of breach. Once the claim gets to trial, which could take months in itself, it could take around 3-6 months for it to come to a conclusion.
Court proceedings can be time consuming and costly, which is why finding some sort of agreement between the parties before getting to this point is often preferable. If you’d like to learn more about Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), please get in touch with us directly.
