Removal to Federal Court
Austin Business Being Sued in State Court
Business Litigation Attorney in Austin
When a party is being sued in state court, an effective business litigation attorney must consider every possible option to maximize the party’s chances of a successful outcome. One such possible option is removal to federal court.
At my Austin, Texas, law firm, I am fully vested in my clients’ pursuit of solutions to complex litigation. My dedication to success sometimes means that I explore with my client removal to federal court as a litigation strategy.
There are many situations where this strategy may be used. Especially in complex or sophisticated litigation, federal court provides the opportunity for the matter to be heard by a different trier of fact. The federal bench is widely considered to be more knowledgeable about certain technical business, intellectual property and financial matters. Removal to federal court often provides the parties with the opportunity to bring a dispute before such a judge — providing the basis for a just and favorable outcome.
More than finding a forum in which certain complex business matters can be effectively litigated, removal to federal court gives my clients a way to resolve matters while avoiding some local prejudice. This is especially important for Texas business owners with widely known businesses and reputations. These business owners may find it difficult to bring a matter before an impartial jury in state court.
Removing a matter to federal court can be tricky, especially if there are multiple defendants involved. As an experienced lawyer, I have the skill necessary to successfully navigate sophisticated legal matters. I have the knowledge and familiarity necessary to comfortably handle matters in federal court and to guide my clients to achieve the best possible outcomes.
When I handle your business litigation case, I personally handle your concerns and take your calls, unless I am in a meeting, on the phone or asleep. I respond to your e-mails, when I receive them, on the same basis. I am willing to work for you, 24/7/365.
