What is Commercial Litigation?

Commercial litigation, or business litigation, involves legal action relating to any business relationship. As a result, it covers many issues, including contract disputes, a breach of contract, partnership or corporation disputes, shareholder issues, class action suits, breach of duty, and other allegations arising in a business context. So, if you're facing a legal action requiring the services of a commercial litigation attorney in Bucks County, Montgomery County, or the greater Philadelphia area, get in touch with an attorney at our law firm.

Unlike consumer litigation with clear plaintiffs and defendants, each side in a dispute may have claims and defenses in commercial litigation. For example, both parties play a hand in the final agreement and may have an issue with the outcome.

Equally important, commercial litigation may take place in several venues, including state, federal, or local courts. They may also extend to private arbitration or administrative hearings. Consequently, it pays to work with a litigation law firm with attorneys comfortable at each level. It also pays to enlist a law firm with varied expertise to support your litigation claim.
