Do I Need An Attorney For My Commercial Litigation Matter?

Yes, employing an attorney for your commercial litigation case is necessary. According to New York law as well as the laws of most states and the Federal Government, a company must be represented by an attorney in order to litigate any matter. If someone is being sued and they are a company, if they do not have a lawyer they will in fact be defaulted and lose the case by law.

Commercial litigation refers to a variety of commercial conflicts, such as contract disputes, partnership disagreements, intellectual property issues, and others. These cases can be complicated, involving numerous parties and extensive legal issues.

First, they possess specialized knowledge and skills in navigating the legal system and understanding business law, which is crucial for effectively representing your interests. Commercial litigators are trained to handle the unique challenges of business disputes, ensuring that your case is approached with the requisite expertise.

Moreover, a reputable attorney can objectively assess your case from an unbiased standpoint, identifying all available options for protecting your business interests. They also have extensive experience in handling complex legal matters related to commercial disputes, offering strategic advice tailored to your specific situation.

Finally, having a seasoned commercial litigation attorney also allows you to focus on running your business while they manage the legal intricacies of your case.

Cases We Handle

  • Breaches of Contract. If you and another party sign a binding legal agreement and the other party violates one or more terms of that agreement, you can sue to recover damages for any consequent losses. Another person or company may claim your company did not live up to its contractual responsibilities and sue you for damages. 
  • Intellectual Property Disputes. Your company most likely uses patents, copyrights, and trademarks to protect its intellectual property. You may need to consider taking legal action if another party is stealing your business’s intellectual property or using it without your permission. Another organization could also allege your company is abusing its intellectual property.
  • Partnership and Shareholder Disputes. If stakeholders in your business refuse to fulfill their responsibilities or find themselves in an irreconcilable conflict, litigation may be necessary. Shareholders may also take legal action if they believe their rights have been violated.
  • Debt Relief/MCA. If you are facing financial difficulty, you may need legal help in debt relief, also known as Merchant Cash Advance. We offer strategic solutions to alleviate financial burdens and propel your business forward. Trust us to navigate the complexities, delivering tailored resolutions for your peace of mind.
  • Employment Conflicts. An employee might attempt to sue your company for alleged discrimination, harassment, wage theft, retaliation, or wrongful termination. Your business can take legal action against an employee if they violate their non-disclosure or non-compete agreement. 
  • Personal Injury Claims. If someone is injured on your business’s property, they may file a personal injury lawsuit and claim you negligently failed to maintain safe premises. They will attempt to recover compensation for damages, including medical expenses.
  • Product Liability Claims. Your company could similarly face a lawsuit if a product you manufacture injures someone.
  • Business Torts. You may be able to take legal action against and recover damages from a company that engages in unfair business practices (such as fraud) or interferes with your contractual or business relationships.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Commercial Litigation Cases In New York?

In New York, the statute of limitations for commercial litigation cases varies depending on the type of claim involved. Generally, for breach of contract claims, which are common in commercial disputes, the statute of limitations is six years from the date the breach occurred, as outlined in CPLR § 213(2). This timeframe applies to both written and oral contracts.

For claims involving the sale of goods, the New York Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) requires a shorter time. UCC § 2-725 requires that an action for breach of a contract for sale be filed within four years of the cause of action accruing.

It's important to note that there may be exceptions and specific circumstances that can affect these general rules. Given the complexity based on the details of a case, consulting with a legal professional to understand the applicable statute of limitations is crucial. This ensures that any action taken is within the permissible time frame, ensuring that your rights and interests are protected.
