Commercial/Business Litigation

Many recent studies on litigation in America report that the largest increase in court filings is in the area of commercial litigation.

"Commercial litigation" involves cases between businesses - business versus business - and cases between businesses and its members, partners, employees or contractors. Commercial litigation also includes claims by investors who were defrauded or misled into making capital contributions to a start-up business or security transaction.

Cases under the category of business litigation include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Non-compete clauses
  • Partnership break-ups
  • Corporate dissolution disputes
  • Fair Market Value of assets
  • Disputes between employers and their employees
  • Interference with business activities
  • Unfair Trade practices and competition
