Complex Commercial And Business Litigation
Commercial litigation is the part of business law that deals with business disputes. This business dispute may be one between two businesses or between a person and a business. There are various causes that lead to commercial litigation, i.e. breach of contract, covenants not to compete, shareholders’ derivative actions, fraud, employment discrimination, RICO, etc. This litigation is often referred to as complex due to the complex questions of law and fact often involved in such matters. Furthermore, since the stakes are usually high, both sides spare no expense to present the best possible case and both sides get the best possible lawyers involved.
Frost Law Firm, P.A.’s complex commercial litigation practice is built on a trial tradition rare among firms of our size. The firm has a long tradition of great litigators and great litigation. We are a firm that knows how to be tenacious, a firm that knows how to turn every stone. Our philosophy is simple: consistent courtroom excellence. Excellence is essential to client satisfaction in the resolution of high stakes commercial disputes. While we recognize that most important commercial cases should be and are resolved by settlement, and pride ourselves on the creativity we bring to the settlement process, we firmly believe that the best settlements result not only from creative lawyering throughout the pretrial period, but also from a demonstrated trial capability and a readiness to take any case to trial.
