Commercial litigation encompasses any type of litigation involving business issues. These disputes are often, but not always, between businesses. The types of issues settled through commercial litigation are many and widely varied.
In civil litigation, a party brings an action against another party to enforce or defend a legal right. The plaintiff is typically seeking monetary damages from the defendant. Commercial litigation is different than other types of civil litigation because it typically involves businesses rather than individuals, and because the issues involved may be specialized and more complex. Additionally, commercial litigation is often filed in federal court, rather than in state court, and it may occur as multi-district or class action litigation.
Our firm handles a wide range of commercial litigation matters. The following are some of the types of cases for which we provide high-quality, experienced representation.
