What is Commercial Litigation?
Commercial litigation is litigation (legal proceedings) involving commercial disputes. These trials are litigation between two or more parties that involve money, goods and services, but may also be solely based around a legal argument. Usually, litigation occurs when the two parties cannot find another way to reconcile the matter in question, leading to mediation, arbitration and, as a final recourse, litigation in the courts.
Typical commercial matters that get brought before courts include disputes over compliance with contracts, employment issues (including unfair dismissal), corporate governance, debt recovery, conflicts between landlords and tenants. In most cases, one party will decide the matter cannot be resolved other than by way of taking it to court for a judge to make a determination on.
Commercial litigation matters can range in severity from financial concerns like compliance with contracts or corporate governance to more personal issues such as employment conflicts (e.g., unfair dismissal) or landlord/tenant disagreements over property use rights. While every matter is different, court hearings usually occur when one party decides the matter can’t be resolved without the determination of a judge.
