Is your business or business group involved in a dispute with another company? It's highly likely that you will require commercial litigation services from a professional legal team.
Litigation is the process of taking legal action. It is often split into two categories, civil and commercial. Whilst civil litigation involves disputes between people, commercial litigation covers all disputes where this is a corporate involvement between businesses and companies.
Commercial litigation is wide ranging, covering a variety of business disputes. One of the best ways to understand commercial litigation is to understand the sort of cases that have been filed previously. These are the 3 most common:
Contacts are being drawn up between businesses on a daily basis. If there is a breach in contract that can't be resolved, then the innocent party may turn to commercial litigation. Breaches include: where there is a failure to deliver goods, when a payment is not made or isn't made on time, when the service delivered is not up to standard and many more.
Disputed partnership agreements
Partners in businesses fall out. It happens but sometimes it gets messy. These disputes usually come about when a partner of the business leaves and there are disagreements over how the assets should be split. For example, entitlement over branding and other intellectual property, customer data and pay outs.
Director and shareholder disputes
Director and Shareholder disputes can be really damaging for the business. They usually centre around how finances are split or conflicts of interest between members. Extreme cases can include fraud against the business.
Other commercial litigation cases could include: professional negligence, IT disputes, injunctions, civil fraud, intellectual property disputes.
