What is business and commercial law?
Business law falls under the jurisdiction of state and federal laws, with a foundation built on federal laws relating to stocks, investments, occupational safety, labor laws, and the environment. States can build on this foundation with licensing requirements and regulations for starting and running businesses.
The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a body of law that governs commercial transactions, and the UCC bears most of the responsibility for regulating commercial law in the United States. The UCC was introduced in 1952, and every state has adopted at least part of the UCC.
When do you need a business lawyer?
For a business owner, it can be tempting to negotiate a merger on their own without the help of a commercial litigation lawyer. However, there are many circumstances in which you may be eligible for legal aid, such as:
- If you own a home and are fighting against a major manufacturer, you are already at a significant legal disadvantage.
- If you’re about to retire and you’ve discovered your retirement savings are gone, you need a lawyer, not another broker.
- When it comes to the complex rules and regulations contained in business and commercial law, you need all the help you can get.
Negotiate disputes, manage separations
Breaking up is difficult to do, especially for businesses. It can be incredibly complicated and emotionally charged, which is why hiring a commercial litigation lawyer can help resolve issues smoothly. The input and advice of an objective and experienced lawyer can avoid lengthy – and costly – litigation that often ends with disgruntled parties on both sides. Working with a commercial lawyer can lead to a more productive and reasonable resolution.
Disagreements between business co-owners – whether they are simply partners, members of a limited liability company, or shareholders of a larger entity – may include differences over operating responsibilities, division of assets and / or liabilities, ownership of intellectual property, issues of non-competition, future ownership and management after the partnership is dissolved, etc. Our national lawyers in business law and commercial litigation can protect your interests, guide you through existing contracts, obligations and responsibilities, and ensure your compliance with legal and regulatory dissolution requirements.

Fight against fraud
Under the law, there are two categories of fraud:
Commercial fraud: An intentional misrepresentation of material facts, or failure to disclose those facts, causing another party to rely on and change their position to their detriment. The elements of commercial fraud include:
- Misrepresentation of facts made by a natural or legal person
- Knowing that the representation was false when it was made
- An intention to obtain or induce the applicant to act (or to refrain from acting) based on the statement
- The plaintiff suffered damages because of the trust
Consumer fraud: This occurs when, in the course of a business transaction, false statements of fact are made, the person or company making the false statements knew they were false at the time, and the other party discharges these statements to its detriment. This type of fraud can certainly require the expertise of a lawyer specializing in commercial litigation.
Here are some examples of consumer fraud:
- Insurance fraud
- Postal fraud
- Charity fraud
- Digital fraud
- Creditors fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Telemarketing fraud
- Investment fraud
- Disaster fraud
- Identity theft
Fraud has become all too common in today’s society. The media constantly report stories of identity theft, credit card fraud and investment scams.
