Many people think only of banks and financial institutions when they think of commercial disputes, but litigation over business issues is far broader. From the smallest mom-and-pop company to the world’s largest corporations, the range of legal problems that can arise in business and commercial transactions is nearly endless. They include breaches of contract, partnership and joint venture disputes, class actions, business torts like fraud and misrepresentation, breaches of fiduciary duties, shareholder disputes, consumer claims, and the list goes on.
