What Is Commercial Litigation?

Commercial litigation is the legal process of resolving disputes that arise in the course of business operations. These disputes can involve a wide range of issues, including contract breaches, partnership disagreements, intellectual property infringement, real estate conflicts, and more. Commercial litigation serves as a formal mechanism for businesses to protect their interests and seek remedies when their rights have been violated.

The scope of commercial litigation is broad, encompassing a wide range of legal issues related to business transactions, operations, and relationships. These issues are governed by a combination of federal and state laws, including contract law, tort law, intellectual property law, and specific statutes relevant to the particular business sector involved. 

While litigation is a formal process that may involve court proceedings, it's important to note that not all commercial disputes require a courtroom battle. In many cases, alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiation, mediation, or arbitration can be effective in reaching a mutually agreeable solution. However, when these avenues prove unsuccessful, or the stakes are particularly high, litigation may become necessary to protect your business interests. The most appropriate course of action will depend on the specific circumstances of your case, the parties involved, and your desired outcomes.

Why Commercial Litigation Matters

Commercial litigation plays a crucial role in maintaining a fair and competitive business environment in Queens and across the United States. It provides a structured process for resolving disputes, enforcing contracts, protecting intellectual property, and upholding business rights. When businesses are unable to resolve conflicts through informal means, commercial litigation offers a legal avenue to seek redress.

Our attorneys are dedicated to providing strategic guidance and representation throughout the litigation process, helping you navigate the legal landscape, and working hard to achieve a favorable outcome.

Whether you are involved in a contract dispute, a real estate conflict, or any other commercial matter, we are here to protect your interests and advocate for your rights.

Examples of Commercial Litigation

  • Non-performance of contractual obligations: A prominent Queens-based retailer engaged a vendor to supply custom-designed merchandise for a major promotional event. When the vendor fails to deliver the goods on time and to the agreed-upon specifications, causing substantial financial losses for the retailer, an attorney intervenes to seek appropriate remedies through litigation.
  • Misappropriation of intellectual property: A leading technology firm in Queens developed a proprietary algorithm central to their innovative software platform. Upon discovering that a competitor had incorporated a strikingly similar algorithm into their product, an attorney initiates legal action to protect their client's intellectual property rights and pursues damages for unauthorized use.
  • Dissolution of partnership due to irreconcilable differences: Two partners in a successful Queens-based real estate development firm found themselves at an impasse regarding the strategic direction of the company. With neither party willing to compromise, an attorney facilitates a mediated dissolution of the partnership, organizing a fair and equitable distribution of assets and minimizing disruption to the ongoing operations of the business.
