Tennessee Business Court | Nashville

business-court-nashville-pageIn May of 2015, Davidson County established a business court headed by Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle. The goal of this court is to expedite litigation processes by maintaining a system exclusively dealing with complex business cases. Chancellor Lyle has held office since 1995 has years of experience and a vested interest in these matters, and takes an enterprising approach.

Business Court Case Criteria

For a claim to be eligible for litigation in Nashville’s business court, it must have been documented since the court’s foundation on May 1, 2015 and involve a minimum of $50,000 in compensatory damages. In addition to the aforementioned criteria, eligible cases involve specific business-related issues including but not limited to:

  • Contract violations
  • Fraud or misrepresentation
  • Corporate, partnership, and LLC disputes
  • Interbusiness relationships
  • Nonresidential real estate disputes
  • Violations of intellectual property

Other stipulations for cases eligible qualified for litigation within Nashville’s business court can be found on the state’s online guide.

Business Court Procedures

  1. Differentiated case litigation plans are one of the many structural advantages to using the business court. Each case litigation plan is different depending on the circumstances of the individual situation. Plans will be drafted based on considerations such as the “type” of case, the amount of damages or compensation at stake, and the nature of the dispute.
  2. Early case litigation plans are an enormous benefit of this new litigation structure. As soon as an eligible case is filed under the business court, immediate action is taken on behalf of the judge to establish schedules for all parties involved related to drafting differentiated case litigation plans.
  3. Efficient methods for documentation, preparation, and hearings are also in place which make use of modern technology as well as the focused nature of the business court itself. Videoconferencing will be implemented where necessary in order to decrease the necessity of travel for attorneys and clients. Staggered scheduling tactics will be used in order to assure that all cases are handled in a timely manner and that all parties are “on the same page.” Since every case is organized based on its individual attributes, the business court webpage will be used to keep track of decisions and scheduling so that progress may be anticipated.
