What is Commercial Litigation in St. Petersburg?
Commercial litigation is a term that refers to commercial or business disputes, including those that ultimately must be solved in a courtroom, as well as those that go through forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) such as arbitration under Florida law. Commercial litigation is often known as business litigation, and it can involve different types of disputes between different parties. Examples of the parties involved in business disputes include:
- Business-to-business disputes, or disputes between two different business entities;
- Business and employee, or disputes between a business (or employer) and a current or former employee; and
- Business and customer or client, or disputes between a business and one of its customers or clients.
Within these types of disputes, many different kinds of legal issues can arise. For example, in business-to-business disputes, your company may need to file or may need to defend against a breach of contract claim. Various disputes can arise between employers and employees, including matters pertaining to breach of employment contract, employment discrimination allegations, and wage and hour law violation allegations. When it comes to disputes that may arise between a business and a customer or client, a business can face a tort lawsuit, a discrimination lawsuit, and in some cases may need to deal with a contract dispute depending upon the nature of the employee-client relationship.
