Helping Your Business Resolve Complex Disputes
Although thorough planning can help businesses avoid litigation, most commercial entities will face legal disputes at some point. Many of these disputes can be effectively resolved through alternative dispute resolution, meaning businesses will not necessarily need to go to trial. Others, however, will require a more aggressive approach.

What Is Commercial Litigation?
Commercial litigation involves all types of legal disputes between businesses and other entities, including fellow businesses, competitors, distributors, suppliers, clients, customers, shareholders, partners, and more. When an entity’s negligent or wrongful conduct negatively affects another, the affected party may take legal action.
Most often, commercial litigation involves claims of financial loss due to the negligent, wrongful, or illegal conduct of another party. Litigation allows the affected party to seek restitution for those financial losses, as well as other damages incurred as a result of the negligent, wrongful, or illegal behavior.
