Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation can result from a variety of circumstances involving people outside or on the inside of your business. The California Corporations Code was established to provide a set of consistent rules for the creation and governing of corporations. Contract law governs commercial contracts. Business tort laws were established to hold employers liable for the negligent behaviors of their employees while engaged in the performance of their work related duties.

Commercial litigation is legal action related to the performance of day to day business. It comes in many forms, and can arise from a variety of circumstances (i.e., business and contract disputes, fraud, vicarious liability, etc.). Our firm has earned a reputation for its vigorous representation and the personalized attention we provide to our clients. This same dedication to service applies our business litigation efforts as well.

Commercial litigation suits can be filed to address any of the following business related issues:


  • Conversion
  • Breach of Contract
  • Interference with Contractual Relationships
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Vicarious Liability

Conversion actions can be pursued when someone takes or steals your business property, products or goods, or interferes with your right to ownership or possession. If damages due to the conversion can be demonstrated, you may have a case. Call us for a consultation.

Breach of contract actions arise when either party to an agreement fails to act as agreed.


Interference with contractual relationships is a situation in which a deliberate action or actions were taken to intentionally interfere with the performance and terms of an established contract. Pursuable actions under this concept of commercial litigation include:


  • Inducing a breach of contract
  • Inducing an unwarranted termination of a contract
  • Making it impossible for a party to the contract to perform his or her obligations under the terms of the agreement
  • Making it difficult for a party to the contract to perform his or her obligations under the terms of the agreement

Vicarious liability is another commercial litigation theory that may be used against a business owner whose employee or employees have committed or participated in negligent actions while serving in their work related positions. This type of claim or lawsuit may involve any number of negligent actions performed by employees while they were “on the clock.”

Fraud and misrepresentation actions arise when false statements are made to cause you to enter into a business deal.
