Commercial litigation involves legal disputes between businesses or individuals that arise from commercial transactions, such as contracts, partnerships, or mergers and acquisitions. These disputes can have serious financial consequences, and can disrupt a business’s operations.
At John Watson Law Group , our experienced commercial litigation attorneys are committed to protecting our clients’ interests and achieving favorable outcomes in their cases. We handle a wide range of commercial disputes, including breach of contract, fraud, intellectual property disputes, and more.
General business litigation. This includes such things as shareholder disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, enforcement of restrictive covenants such as non-competition agreements, enforcement of Non-disclosure or non-circumvention agreements.
Commercial collection, i.e. business-to-business debt collection. This is perhaps the most common type of litigation in our court system. It may be a complex litigation between corporate giants, or a dispute between small businesses. It involves suits on open account, accounts stated, breach of contract, promissory notes, security agreements, etc., ranging from small amounts to millions.
The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) contains much of the law in commercial transactions. Article 2 of the UCC covers Sales and the rights and remedies of buyers and sellers. These are too diverse for this forum, but training and orientation is available, if desired.
Breach of contract matters. These can be simple or complex, depending on the nature of the contract, the factual situation, and the jurisdiction under which the contract is to be construed. U.S. contracts between merchants are generally covered by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The UCC has been adopted in most states. It has sections on the sale of goods, commercial paper, bills of lading, bulk sales, and secured transactions, for example. In most cases, the UCC’s underlying provisions do not come into play, but a client must be aware of its intricacies.
Rights and defenses under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and Contracts for International Sale of Goods (CISG). The UCC has been addressed, so what is the CISG? The CISG is, so to speak, the UCC for international transactions, or, looking at it another way, the UCC is the CISG for the United States. The CISG is a business code maintained by the International Chamber of Commerce for international transactions. There are notable differences from the UCC that require caution. For example, some similar sounding F.O.B. shipping terms have quite different meanings in the ICC Incoterms used in the international arena.
