Business litigation is the area of law covering disputes that arise in business and commercial transactions. Such litigation proceeds under civil law and rules of civil procedure, a body of law distinct from the law that governs criminal prosecutions. The types of issues that may require business and civil litigation are many, but some examples include:

Contract disputes

Employer-Employee disputes

Formation of business entities

Fraud and deceptive trade practices

Mergers and acquisitions

Non-compete Agreements

Tortious interference with contract

Civil suits can be brought to recover a right, obtain damages, or prevent future injury or legal disputes. These suits often require application of state and federal laws, depending on the individuals, organizations, or business entities involved. Various statutes, case law, and constitutional provisions may be implicated depending on the case. The majority of civil litigation suits can be settled outside of court without proceeding to trial. Once in court, the resolution of the dispute can become a lengthy, complex process. Different parties may intervene, filing cross-claims and counter-claims involving the original parties.
