Commercial litigation, or business litigation, is a type of civil litigation involving one or more business entities as parties. When parties cannot resolve a dispute or come to an agreement, commercial litigation attorneys are retained to represent their interests. Commercial litigation cases have become significantly more complex over the past decade. Commercial litigators have seen an increase in parties involved, and as a result, the amount of hours spent on discovery for each case has also seen a dramatic increase.
If you or your business is involved in a commercial litigation dispute, it is critical that you retain the services of an experienced attorney to represent your interests. While contract disputes are common, they can cause financial burdens to businesses. An attorney can assist with the lengthy pre-trial preparation process and court proceedings necessary for your claim and even negotiate a settlement on your behalf before your dispute turns into a lawsuit.
Halperin, Halperin & Weiskopf, PLLC is here to address your needs and support you through the entirety of the litigation process. Our commercial litigation attorneys will take the necessary steps to ensure our clients receive the best possible representation. Some examples of past cases include:

Our commercial litigation attorneys at Halperin, Halperin & Weiskopf, PLLC will fight zealously on your behalf to ensure you and your company do not get ripped off by your competitors.
Insurance disputes & denials: Insurance companies are required to adhere to the terms of the individual’s policy agreement. Unfortunately, insurance companies often mishandle and unjustifiably deny their clients’ claims. With the appropriate support, you can recover the compensation that you deserve, regardless of the size and prominence of your insurance provider.
Contract Disputes: Contract disputes typically involve a breach of the contract when (at least) one party fails to uphold the terms of the deal. For example, disagreements between businesses and subcontractors, suppliers, vendors, or employees over the terms of an agreement can lead to a commercial litigation lawsuit. Whether it’s a minor or material breach, our attorneys will zealously fight on your behalf. Click here for more information about contract dispute claims.

There are a variety of venues involved with commercial litigation, namely state and federal courts and exclusive arbitrations.
Not all commercial litigation cases go to trial; in fact, an overwhelming majority – more than 97% of commercial litigation lawsuits – settle before trial. Below are standard methods commercial litigation attorneys use to resolve disputes.
Alternative Dispute Resolution: Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is utilized when the parties prefer to settle outside the courtroom. Mediation and arbitration are some of the main types of alternative dispute resolutions.
Mediation and Arbitration: Mediation and arbitration can be an effective tactic for resolving commercial disputes. An arbitrator listens to the arguments of the involved parties and is tasked with resolving the dispute. In preparation for arbitration, attorneys prepare evidence and testimonies. Arbitration is commonly chosen because it often results in lower costs and faster verdicts. Mediators help expedite the settlement process by supporting both sides in reaching an agreement. The goal of mediators is to come up with a justified solution that will satisfy all of the parties involved with a case.
Litigation: Litigation is notorious for being a lengthy and expensive process for settling disputes. It is often the last resort when other strategies for resolving disputes are unsuccessful. Although litigation is usually avoided in commercial litigation lawsuits, our attorneys at Halperin, Halperin & Weiskopf, PLLC are experienced trial lawyers, meaning we will go to court to defend you and your company’s rights.
