What is Commercial Litigation?
Common examples of commercial litigation include:
Breach of contract: a breach of contract can involve purchases and sales of real estate, securities, mergers, and acquisitions, or agreements to provide goods or services.
Tortious interference with a contract: tortious interference with a contract occurs when a third party successfully interferes with or otherwise prevents the performance of an agreement between two parties.
Breach of fiduciary duty: a fiduciary duty is an obligation to act in the best interests of another party or entity. For example, a corporation’s board member has fiduciary duties owed to shareholders. A breach occurs when a party goes against what is owed professionally as a fiduciary to clients, corporations, and boards.
Fraud: fraud involves deceptive activity or misrepresentation in business transactions.
