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.

Examples of Common Business Disputes

Throughout the course of business, a variety of disputes may arise. In many cases, these disputes cannot be resolved without legal intervention.
