Nevada business court dockets were created based on the model of business courts within Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. The establishment of the business court is an embodiment of Nevada's efforts to attract corporations and other business entities to organize in Nevada. The main goals of the business court are to provide early, comprehensive case management to avoid business interruption during pending litigation; provide close management of factually and/or legally complex commercial litigation; and provide consistency of decisions to enable business planning. Along with these goals, Nevada wants to ensure that any legal disputes will be handled efficiently, competently, and predictably, and that Nevada businesses will continue operations with minimal interruption.
Official business courts are established in Reno (Second Judicial District Court) and Las Vegas (Eighth Judicial District Court).
Generally, the types of cases that may be filed in the Business Court include:
-- Business entities on both sides of the "v," and the case involves complex facts and/or legal issues.
-- This is the "catchall" provision, and it is left to the discretion of the Business Court Judges to determine whether the case is appropriate for Business Court.
-- The goal of these conferences include expediting the case, streamlining issues for discovery purposes, and determining whether the parties are willing to attend an early settlement conference. Even if settlement is not being considered, this conference should "kick off" and expedite the litigation process.
-- Facilitates efficient and organized case management in complex cases where multiple parties and claims have been joined.
-- Saves law firms and their clients significant costs associated with preparing multiple copies of large pleadings.
