What Is Commercial Litigation?

Almost nothing breeds fear and trepidation in the hearts of risk-averse companies and their owners like the prospect of litigation. Litigation matters that make their way to court are becoming more complex, which means they can be expensive. Being sued, fighting with competitors, and getting into trouble due to a lack of compliance or regulatory observance can be drastic enough to close the doors of business forever. Fortunately, if you need a seasoned Commercial Litigation lawyer in Miami, Santiago J. Padilla is ready to help.

What Is Commercial Litigation? Commercial litigation involves disputes and matters pertaining to litigation that are essential to the core of a company's business and strategy. If a previous employee sued you for wrongful termination, that is not intricately related to your core business and strategy. However, if an employee stole client lists and trade secrets, that would absolutely be essential to your core business and strategy. The latter would fall under commercial litigation.

What Cases Does a Commercial Litigation Lawyer Handle?

A Commercial Litigation Lawyer may focus on a particular area of corporate law or they may operate as more of a generalist who handles myriad case types. General commercial litigation covers common areas of dispute, including fraud, breach of contract cases, partnership disputes, shareholder issues, business tort law, breach of fiduciary duty allegations, and class actions. A successful commercial litigation lawyer will be proficient in analyzing the merits of a dispute and effectively present a position that fits the legal and business needs of the client.
