In Commercial litigation you need sage, experienced and aggressive counsel. It’s your business, and your livelihood. You need counsel that will fight to protect your business just as hard as you have fought to grow it.

  •  Agriculture or Farm

  • LLC Membership 

  • Product Liability 

  • Shareholder Issues

  • Tax Disputes

  • Tortious Interference

  • Trade Secret Lawsuits

  • Unfair Competition Actions

 

Simply put, a commercial dispute and resultant litigation, occur when a party – business owner – person or entity- (Plaintiff) sues another party or parties (Defendant(s)) to enforce a legal right and seeks compensation through money damages or specific performance. 

 

As occurs in other types of civil litigation, when a dispute arises, in commercial matters, a Plaintiff retains an attorney, files a complaint at law, the Defendant answers the Complaint, then both sides conduct factual investigations called discovery.  In most cases, the court orders the parties conduct formal settlement negotiations or mediation- where most cases settle.

The legal landscape is constantly shifting because of changes in political administrations, rules and regulations, the economy, court appointments, and the law as a whole. The commercial litigation environment is constantly evolving and must adapt and change. As the market changes and technology changes, the commercial litigation field must also adapt.

There will always be a need for commercial litigation even as commerce evolves. With new and emerging technologies, the law has adapted, and plaintiffs have found new causes to litigate such as patent infringement and breach of online contract. High tech companies are growing significantly and playing a larger role in the growth of the commercial litigation practice area. These are the companies most likely to engage in high-risk and high-dollar litigation because of the nature of the subject matter. Often it is the intellectual property, trade secrets, or big-dollar contracts of the company at stake when engaging in these lawsuits.
