Commercial law is the term given to the relatively broad area of the law that encompasses the legal issues involved when businesses or individuals engage in trade or commerce. The nature of commercial law requires a thorough knowledge of very complex state and/or federal laws and regulations. Fortunately for our clients, the commercial litigation team at Kirkland, McGhee, & Gann has experience in handling even the most challenging commercial law matters.
Common Types of Commercial Litigation
Commercial litigation involves a wide variety of different types of transactions, agreements, and enterprises, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Breach of contract
- Tortious interference with contract
- Trade secret disputes
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Corporate negligence
- Unfair competition
- Labor and employment disputes
- Banking transactions
- Partnership disputes
- Insurance coverage
Why Would You Need a Commercial Litigation Attorney?
One of the most common misconceptions is that commercial litigation only involves business entities. While our commercial litigation group does represent numerous corporations, they also represent individuals who find themselves facing off with a business in the legal arena. For example, an individual who entered into a contract with a builder to build a home might need a commercial litigation attorney if the builder subsequently breached the contract. Because of the broad scope of commercial law, there is a very good chance that just about everyone will face the prospect of commercial litigation at some point during their lifetime. When that time arrives, your choice of legal representation will be critical to navigating the legal system to a successful conclusion.
