Complex Litigation:

Types of Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation is a practice area that concerns legal disputes involving businesses. Commercial litigation disputes typically involve contract disagreements, as well as property and financial issues. The purpose of commercial litigation is to settle business disputes without having to go to trial.

One type of commercial litigation involves land acquisitions and company mergers. Often, when a business is attempting to buy out another company, the entity that is being purchased may have financial problems. A commercial litigation lawyer will assist with the company merger by reviewing stock sales, negotiating employee contracts and ensuring the sale complies with federal and state laws.

Other areas that fall under commercial litigation include:

  • Franchise disputes
  • Contract disputes
  • Uniform Commercial Code disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Business dissolution
  • Franchise disputes
  • Consumer fraud and consumer protection
  • Antitrust and trade actions
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
