When one or more of the parties involved in a business legal dispute is a corporate entity (including a partnership), commercial litigation is the result. Commercial and corporate litigation, compared to conventional civil litigation cases, have similarities but also many differences.
The main distinction between commercial and corporate litigation and other types of civil litigation is the parties involved. Due to the involvement of corporations, the issues raised are frequently more complicated or specific than in other types of civil lawsuits, such as legal issues involving trade secrets, intellectual property, business transactions, and business torts. Depending on the number of parties involved or the types of parties involved, commercial litigation cases can brought in federal court as opposed to state court.

Legal contracts, especially business contracts, can be extremely complex, and litigation involves showing the intent and meaning behind a contract’s terms, examining the legality and enforceability of the terms, determining which provisions, if any, have been broken, and if so, determining what damages are owed or what other possible remedies are available.
