Understanding Business Litigation

Business litigation cases involve disputes arising out of commercial and business transactions. These types of lawsuits involve a violation of business contracts of a non-criminal nature. Many business litigations are centered around breach of contract, fraud, and intellectual property disputes. Many different scenarios can give rise to business litigation, and business litigation spans across all industries. Willcox, Buyck & Williams, PA has successfully represented clients in business litigation disputes in a wide range of industries, from technology to construction and development companies.

Business Litigation Over Breach of Contract

Businesses must enter into contracts in agreements every day. Both parties to a contract must abide by the terms of the agreement. When one party breaches a contract, the other party may suffer serious financial damages. One of the best ways to prevent unnecessary business litigation is to work with an attorney to draft your contracts. 

When business litigation occurs, it’s crucial that the contract is well written and provides remedies for breach of contract. The provisions in the contract will play an important role in who will prevail in terms of liability, arbitration, mediation, and legal jurisdiction. The primary types of breach of contract lawsuits involve the following:

  •  Anticipatory breach of contract
  •  Minor breach of contract
  •  Actual or fundamental breach of contract
  •  Material breach of contract

Litigation Involving Fraud Disputes

Many business litigation cases involve some type of business fraud through deception or misrepresentation. Sometimes fraud involves something that has been claimed that isn’t true or an important fact that is incorrect or misleading. Litigation over business fraud can occur in various situations, including employee fraud, business fraud, fraud in purchasing or sale of goods or services, and in numerous other situations. Fraud cases involve aspects from other areas of law, and it’s crucial that you work with an attorney who has a wide range of legal knowledge and experience. For example, litigation involving claims of fraud can encompass multiple other legal issues, such as:

  •  Misrepresentation
  •  Fraudulent inducement
  •  Intellectual property issues
  •  Misrepresentation, omission, and non-disclosure
  •  Fraudulent concealment
  •  Tortious interference
  •  Fraud by a business partner

Business fraud litigation can result in injunctive relief, monetary damages, potential disgorgement, and other types of damages to your business’s reputation.

Intellectual Property Litigation

Today, protecting your intellectual property is more important than ever. A significant amount of business litigation cases involve intellectual property disputes. These types of disputes include trademarks, copyrights, patents, rights of publicity, and trade secrets. Intellectual property attorneys will perform a due diligence review of your assets and intellectual property. If you suspect or know that someone is infringing on your intellectual property, we can begin protecting your rights in federal and state courts.
