What is Business Litigation
Companies routinely face litigation threats from clients, customers, employees, executives and governmental agencies. Commercial litigation is a practice area covering lawsuits and other types of cases that arise from business disputes. This includes breach of contract matters, business torts and partnership disputes. When problems arise, corporations turn to commercial litigators for assistance throughout the dispute resolution process.
In New York City, the process occurs within multiple forums and across state lines, depending on the nature of the dispute. Corporations find themselves brought before federal courts, state courts, arbitration associations and administrative bodies.
Successful commercial litigators properly assess the merits of a dispute then customize a strategy fitting the needs of their client. Attorneys practicing in this area require a keen understanding of the legal, financial and political implications of proposed actions. Creative approaches are often necessary to tackle unique problems presented in today’s tumultuous business environment.
