Unfortunately, we live in a world where internal and external conflicts related to business litigation can put a serious strain on businesses and their financial well being. Luckily, there are commercial laws and practices in place that protect commercial businesses from wrongdoings against them. Commercial law is the public policy that regulates business and commerce, specifically the manufacturing and sale of goods to consumers, corporate matters, and contract discussions or disputes. Because businesses engage in many different commercial matters and transactions on a daily basis (including leasing and purchasing of facilities and writing contracts for goods and services), it’s highly important to have a commercial litigation attorney on your side to help navigate the complexities associated with commercial law. Commercial law covers a vast number of business practices, and it can often be confusing when or if you should seek commercial litigation counsel. Understanding your rights as a business owner is essential to ensuring the success of your business. If you are in need of a commercial litigation attorney, read below to see how the Law Office of Dennis Green can help you.

Breach of Contract Claims
Breach of contract claims typically make up the majority of commercial litigation and are often the result of non-compliance with contracts. Non-compliance can include delays in performance, defective products, defective services, late payment, and non-payment. However, in order to claim that a contract you entered into was breached by the other party or parties involved, you likely need a skilled commercial litigation lawyer to help prove your case. In order to successfully claim a breach of contract, you must be able to prove that a valid contract existed (whether oral, written, or implied), provide evidence of the defendant’s breach of contract, and finally, you must show that you suffered damages as a result of the contract breach. If your case settles or you prevail in a court of law, damages you could be entitled to include:
- Reimbursement for costs
- Compensation for incurred losses
- Damages for monetary amounts specified in the contract
- Forced obligation to complete the original terms of the contract
- Re-writing the terms of the contract
- Cancellation of the contract
- An award of attorneys’ fees and cost
