What is Commercial Litigation?

Reed addresses the question: What is commercial litigation?

Commercial litigation describes legal disputes that might arise in the context of business between one or more commercial entities that are governed by state and or federal corporate law. 

Parties Involved Are Business Entities

The actual definition of commercial litigation is determined by the parties involved in the legal dispute. A commercial dispute is where one or more of these parties is a business entity like a corporation, an LLC, a partnership.

The definition of litigation is the legal process initiated when opposing parties want to defend or enforce a legal right.

Commercial Litigation Cases

General commercial litigation involves virtually every type of disagreement that can occur between or within business including:

  • Antitrust and trade action disputes
  • Corporate management and control disputes
  • Business dissolution or organizational disputes
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
  • Contract disputes such as breach of contract
  • Tortious interference with contractual or business relationships
  • Uniform Commercial Code disputes
  • Breach of fiduciary duty cases
  • Employment disputes
  • Disputes over non-compete agreements
  • Debt collection actions
  • Aviation disputes
  • LLC membership disputes
  • Securities litigation

Federal and State Court Cases

Many commercial litigation cases are filed in federal court rather than in state court, and some cases are class action lawsuits or multi-district lawsuits. This depends upon the number of involved parties or the types of parties involved.

It is common for commercial cases to cost more because of additional steps involved in the litigation process. Namely, it’s the discovery process and the use of forensic experts that tend to be more extensive in a commercial dispute.

Thorough Understanding of Business Goals

In any commercial litigation case, but especially during this challenging economic and business climate, commercial litigators have an obligation to protect a business’ interests. Bloodworth Law achieves this by thoroughly understanding business goals to accurately assess risk and determine possible actions and outcomes.
