Business Law

Business and commercial law covers a broad range of legal principles and regulations that govern a business’s operations and transactions. It involves aspects such as mergers and acquisitions, contracts, corporate structure, intellectual property rights, employment law, and compliance with government regulations. In all, business and commercial law ensures that businesses operate within legal boundaries. 

Litigation: Business, Contract, Real Estate and Probate

Business: These are legal disputes between companies that can include contracts, shareholder disputes, partnership disagreements, intellectual property disputes, employment disputes, and more. Business litigation aims to protect the interests of the parties involved and to find a fair and equitable resolution. 

Contract: Contract litigation occurs when two parties disagree because one of them didn’t do what they promised to do in a contract. The parties can then end up in court, seeking a judge’s decision to decide who is right and what will happen next. 

Real Estate: Real estate litigation involves a legal dispute related to land, property, or buildings. These disputes can arise between various people, including property owners, landlords, tenants, developers, HOAs, government entities, or any other parties involved in a real estate transaction. 

Probate: Probate litigation refers to the legal dispute of administering the estate of someone who has passed. Based on their will or laws of intestacy, the estate will be legally distributed according to the deceased person’s previous decision.
