Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation means any type of business controversy that is brought before a court.  This area of practice typically includes disputes that relate to the following types of business issues:

  • Limits on competition, such as disagreements that involve noncompete agreements, nonsolicitation agreements and nondisclosure agreements.
  • Misuse of intellectual property that involves trade secrets, patents, copyrights, trademarks and service marks.
  • Fraud and deceptive trade practices that involve, for example, claims that products have been misrepresented, consumer protection laws have been violated and that false statements have been used to land a contract.
  • Abuses of trust that may involve the breach of a fiduciary relationship that requires a heightened level of responsibility and trust.
  • Employment disputes that involve a wide range of issues, such as overtime, disabilities, health and pension benefits, discrimination and wrongful discharge.
  • Breach of contract is perhaps the most common form of business dispute and typically involves a disagreement as to whether one side or the other to a contract has properly performed its contractual duties or, perhaps, whether one party has been excused from performance by acts of the other party.
  • Tortious interference with contract may frequently spring out of an agreement that limits competition, whereby one person contractually obligated to not engage in certain activity involving a third party ignores the contractual limitation and attempts to do business with the third party in a manner that is contractually precluded.

Commercial litigation matters can range from relatively simple and uncomplicated matters to highly complex matters that take a great deal of time and effort to resolve.
