What is Commercial Litigation?

Commercial litigation is a contentious dispute between businesses or a business and an individual. Typical examples of cases that fall under the heading of Commercial Litigation are partnership disputes, banking and finance litigation, property litigation, employment disputes and debt collection.

Commercial litigation can best be avoided by ensuring that all terms are covered by written contract or are otherwise covered in written communications.  Where terms are orally agreed a dispute is more likely to go to court or settle on unfavourable terms due to the uncertainty in establishing the terms of an agreement.  With this in mind it is of paramount importance to seek the advice of a commercial lawyer specialising in drafting contracts.
