A Civil and Commercial Litigation Attorney represents companies and individuals in civil and commercial matters. In the world of civil and commercial litigation, disputes can often threaten hard-earned reputations and the very existence of a company, not to mention the millions of dollars that might be at stake.

Civil and commercial claims usually fall under three different categories: breach of contract actions, business torts cases, and statutory claims.

Breach of Contract Actions

In a breach of contract action, the plaintiff accuses the defendant of violating or failing to honor a contract, which is an exchange of legally enforceable promises. Even private handshake agreements have a legal right to be enforced under New York law. Because contractual disputes are all too common in business law, companies should consider having an attorney review their contract before any breach has happened in order to modify risk or seek assurance from the other party. If a breach has already happened, an attorney can help moderate disputes, assess the terms of the contract, or initiate any recommended legal action such as filing a breach of contract claim.

Business Torts Claims

Business torts claims cover things perceived as injurious to a business, its reputation, intellectual property, or other assets. Trade disparagement, fraud, negligent misrepresentation, invasion of privacy, misappropriation of trade secrets, tortious interference with a contract, and interference with employment relationships all constitute tortious acts. Just as the law intends to protect individuals from harm inflicted by others, it also allows companies to respond to anything that puts its security or its future at risk.

Statutory Claims

Statutory claims involve discrimination and violation of rights as outlined by law under New York General Business Law § 349 and under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. Cases involving unfair dismissal, equal pay, disability, and discrimination based on sexual orientation have led to famous pieces of legislation that guarantee a safer and more equitable place of employment for all.

Other Areas of Civil and Commercial Litigation

In addition, a Civil and Commercial Litigation Attorney also handles bankruptcy and adversary proceedings, civil racketeering actions, consumer fraud actions, business dissolution proceedings and other corporate litigation, securities litigation and arbitration, product liability cases, franchisor-franchisee litigation, qui tam actions, proceedings to enforce money judgments, divorce actions, and post-divorce judgment proceedings.

In civil litigation, a lawsuit is brought between individuals, rather than businesses or companies, to enforce a legal right in which the plaintiff seeks payment or damages from the defendant. Money damages and specific performance issues between parties are common reasons for civil litigation, or the case may relate to compensation owed for personal or business losses caused by a civil wrong, consumer fraud, breach of an agreement, breach of a fiduciary relationship, misleading trade practices, civil racketeering, etc.

Commercial litigation encompasses a vast array of disputes that businesses must contend with, such as vendor and distributor disagreements, partnership and joint venture disputes, breach of a fiduciary duty, shareholder issues, and more.

No business or individual should engage in a legal dispute without an experienced Civil and Commercial Litigation Attorney working to protect their best interests.
