Most attorneys would agree that “business litigation” is an area of law which includes a variety of contractual and tort claims. Examples include breach of contract, fraud, tortious interference with contract, breach of fiduciary duty, infringement of intellectual property rights, and unfair competition. Often, when these types of business disputes arise, the parties are unable to resolve them on their own. When that happens, business litigation, arbitration or mediation can be used as a way to resolve the disputes. Business litigation is not limited exclusively to businesses suing other businesses. In certain cases such as shareholder disputes, individuals may asset claims against a company or against other shareholder and vice-versa. Corporate litigation constitutes an important part of business litigation. Corporate disputes often arise as a result of a breach of fiduciary duty. For example, shareholders in a closely-held corporation may recover against a corporate director if he breaches his fiduciary obligations.
