Common Types of Commercial Law and Commercial Litigation Cases
Commercial disputes arise when parties involved in a commercial transaction disagree about the terms of their agreement. Disputes can also arise when businesses interact with government regulators or third-party customers.
Examples of common commercial and business cases include:

- Trade secrets theft: businesses may be concerned about unauthorized access to their proprietary information, such as trade secrets.
- Unfair competition: businesses may feel that they are getting unfair treatment from competitors in the marketplace.
- Patent infringement: businesses may believe that another business is using their patented technology without permission, which could impact their profits and ability to compete in the marketplace.
- Business copyright infringement: businesses may be concerned that their intellectual property (such as recipes or designs) is being used without permission by competitors, which could impact their ability to generate revenue from the Intellectual Property.
- Business torts: businesses may be injured by the actions of third parties, such as faulty products or fraudulent business practices.
- Employment law: businesses may have problems with employees who do not follow company policies, engage in misconduct, or violate workplace safety regulations.
- Consumer protection: businesses may have to deal with issues such as unfair competition from competitors, marketing practices that are deceptive or unfair, and warranty disputes.
- Tax law: businesses may be interacting with different tax authorities and need to follow the specific rules that apply to their industry or business.
