Business Litigation

Commercial Litigation & Other Business Disputes

Business litigation or commercial litigation encompasses the disputes that arise between businesses or sometimes between businesses and individuals. Sometimes the cases can be quite complex with multiple parties. The Orlando attorneys at Cynthia Conlin & Associates help business clients defend and prosecute business litigation cases, which may be filed for monetary loss or for injunctive relief.

The umbrella practice area of business litigation or commercial disputes includes evaluating and resolving disagreements sometimes before a lawsuit is filed (“pre-litigation”), as well as preparing for and seeing civil actions through to judgment and beyond, even in post-judgment proceedings.

Issues litigated in business disputes might include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Commercial disparagement (or business defamation)
  • Construction law issues
  • Employment law disputes
  • Fraudulent misrepresentation
  • Franchise or business opportunity disputes
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Tortious interference with contractual relations
  • Trade libel
  • Trademark infringement or trade dress infringement
  • Unfair competition
  • Unjust enrichment

If you would like the attorneys at Cynthia Conlin & Associates to evaluate your commercial or business dispute, call us at 407-965-5519 or contact us here.
