Commercial litigation is litigation concerning businesses. Usually it is a contract dispute. Sometimes it is a simple collection matter. If a business relationship is disintegrating, the litigation can be as unpleasant as a contested divorce.
My commercial litigation skills are strengthened by the fact that I also draft commercial documents. As an older attorney once said to me, “The more you litigate, the better you draft; the more you draft, the better you litigate.” For example, since I draft “covenants not to compete,” I know how to attack someone else’s document and I know how to defend someone else’s document. Similarly, when I draft “covenants not to compete,” I keep in mind how I would attack it if I were an opposing attorney in litigation.
As with all litigation, mediation and settlement should always be at least considered, and often preferred.
