Orlando Florida – Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida
Orlando falls within the jurisdiction of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, which covers Orange and Osceola Counties. The Ninth Judicial Circuit has two main courthouses: One in Orlando and one in Kissimmee. Many business disputes are litigated in the Circuit Court. However, in cases involving complex issues related to non-compete agreements, trade secrets, trademarks, antitrust or intellectual property, it is often beneficial for litigants to seek a transfer to the Complex Business Court.
Ninth Judicial Circuit – Complex Business Court
The Ninth Judicial Circuit is one of a handful of circuits throughout the state of Florida that has a special court within dedicated to complex business litigation. The Business Court offers litigants a number of benefits and functions more along the lines of federal court. The Business Court has standardized procedures, judges who are experienced in deciding complex commercial cases and a higher degree of consistency with respect to rulings. Any party facing the prospect of litigating a complex case in Orlando state court should immediately consider a transfer to the Business Court.
