Who decides a case in commercial litigation?

Normally commercial litigation cases are decided by a judge, but you can ask for a jury in certain situations. I prefer having judges decide commercial litigation cases because of the complexity of the issues involved. However, in Florida all cases must go to mediation, and 90% of the cases settle at mediation because business people recognize that there’s value in settling so they can get on to do what’s more important for them. If they don’t settle at mediation, however, we’re ready to take your case to trial.
