Commercial Disputes


A commercial dispute is one that arises in the business context. While some commercial disputes concern the core of the business itself, other commercial disputes may involve a specific agreement or property.

From antitrust concerns to contract and zoning disagreements, commercial disputes span a wide variety of industries and may take place in a number of different forums, including state courts, federal courts, administrative proceedings, and arbitrations.
