Commercial litigation is considered a form of civil law. Often times, commercial litigation deals more with business related issues and tends to be more complex. Because disputes can happen at any time, it is important to understand the different types of commercial litigation issues that can occur.
Areas of Commercial Litigation
With any suit involving your livelihood, you need a commercial litigation attorney that has seen it all, such as Amarillo business lawyers Kenneth Netardus and Dusty Stockard. Below are just a few of the areas of commercial litigation that they can help with.
Infringement of IP (intellectual property) rights can end in a trademark dispute. For example, if another business uses a logo that is similar to yours, this could be considered infringement. Even if a trademark has not been registered, there may still be a case.
If one or both parties disagree to terms and conditions of an agreement, this can result in a contract dispute. Disputes about contracts can include errors, incorrect technical terms used, coercion, and not an appropriate offer or exchange. These are just a few examples of disputes that can happen. The best way to avoid a contract dispute is to make sure the terms are clear when drafting the initial document. For more information, contact us. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge in contract disputes.
Property disputes can involve any real estate, such as apartments, single-family homes, condominiums, roads, and canals. The parties that are included in a dispute can be anyone from a neighbor to government agencies to property visitors. Common types include:
- Disagreement about boundary lines for real property
- A neighbor putting up a fence specifically to block view to the other neighbor
- Determining who is responsible for repairs and/or damage on a rental property
- Ownership of a property
- Commercial and residential zoning
