Litigation Bodenheimer Herzberg legal

In broad terms, commercial litigation encompasses any dispute to be decided by a state court and involving a business taking legal action against another business.

Commercial litigation may revolve around a wide variety of issues, such as breach of contract, the divergent interpretation of contractual clauses, around tortious liability, or unjust enrichment. Commercial litigation may arise in connection with a plethora of contracts such as agency and distribution agreements, franchising, sale of goods, commercial lease, advertising agreements,  and so on.
