Commercial litigation is a general term that describes the process of taking legal action regarding business disputes. A business litigation attorney may be consulted to assist in settling a dispute between one or more businesses or to file a lawsuit or seek other legal redress arising out of a business dispute. A critical aspect of being a commercial litigator is the ability to analyze a client’s problems and to counsel the client on the various options they may have to solve their problem. In some cases, a lawsuit is not the answer. The best approach may be to seek a quick and cost efficient business solution through negotiation, mediation or even arbitration. In some cases, however, it is necessary to file a lawsuit to adequately protect a client’s rights and interests or to recoup monetary damages sustained, or likely to be incurred in the future. The client must be aware of all options and the likely outcome of each.
