Commercial litigation is in general any type of legal controversy related to business issues.

Cases that fall under the heading of Commercial Litigation include:

  • Breaches of contract
  • Class actions
  • ERISA
  • Employment disputes
  • Business dissolution
  • Interference with business relationships
  • Disputes over non-compete clauses
  • Civil RICO
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Franchise issues
  • Shareholder issues
  • Partnership disputes
  • Debt collection

Commercial litigation covers all business conflicts. This is more specific than Business Law which includes the drafting of contracts and agreements (the stuff that might some day lead to a dispute).
