With current authorities, succinct discussions of complex issues, and the forms vital to handling a commercial case, the Eleventh Edition of Business Litigation in Florida is a must-have for business practitioners and trial attorneys alike. The completely updated manual covers the full range of concerns to business litigators, from initial considerations of jurisdiction and venue, through myriad discovery and other pretrial and trial issues, to recovery of attorneys' fees.

Highlights of the new edition include:

  • Updated statutes, Rules of Procedure, and regulations.
  • Updated case law.
  • Hot Topics:
    • Florida Supreme Court no longer "accepts" jury instructions, maintains designation as "standard" jury instructions.
    • F.S. 607.07401 was repealed under Chapter 2019-90, Laws of Florida, which also created new statutes F.S. 607.0741–607.0750.
    • F.S. 607.0850 was rewritten.
    • Florida Supreme Court issued AOS20-23 requiring new case management orders for trial courts (specifying case deadlines; deadlines for service, adding new parties, and completion of fact and expert testimony; projected date of trial; and particular orders for each circuit) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
    • Florida is officially a Daubert state again.
