Business & Commercial Litigation
Regardless of the size of your company or the industry that you are in, there are many legal issues that you may encounter when operating a business. This legal area includes contract litigation, employment litigation, insurance litigation and coverage disputes, construction litigation, securities litigation, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) litigation and more. Disputes can arise between business partners, business’s, clients, employees and vendors. Business litigation law can be quite complex.
Every area of commercial litigation has substantial law that penalizes you for failure to comply with provisions of the law that a generalist may not know about and which could impair your claim. Each area requires specialized knowledge in the subject matter to be an effective advocate, a generalist will not get the job done. That’s why if you become involved in a dispute, it’s imperative that you seek legal representation from a commercial litigation lawyer to protect your business.
Common Types of Business Litigation
Contract disputes are fairly common in the business world. Typically, this type of dispute arises when one party alleges that the other party breached the terms of the contract. This includes disputes related to partnership, employment, vendor, distributor, and real estate contracts.
Other disputes that may arise in the course of doing business include those related to employment law, defamation, fraud or misrepresentation, infringement on intellectual property, unfair competition, and whistleblowers. If your business is served with legal documents such as a complaint, subpoena or a cease and desist, you need representation.
These cases can be rather complicated, so it’s important that you work with an attorney who has extensive commercial litigation knowledge and experience. Without this knowledge, an attorney may have a hard time understanding the technical violation you may be accused of which in many may not be a violation at all. The law is very technical and nuanced so similar conduct may not always be wrongful conduct depending on various factors as what is your company’s relationship to the accuser or was the conduct in response to the other parties’ action.
DID YOU KNOW:
- The UCC Uniform Commercial Code has special rules that deal with secured transactions and negotiable instruments law.
- If you do not follow the UCC rules when you liquidate your collateral you could lose your right to seek a judgment for the balance you are owed after liquidation?
- If you included certain terms in your documents like a confession of judgement it could impair your ability to get a judgement on your note?
