Litigation means "taking legal action", i.e, using the court system as an arbiter to address perceived wrongs.  Perceived wrongs between private parties are deemed "civil" wrongs and thus civil litigation involves one private party taking legal action against another private party.  Examples of civil litigation includes lawsuits for breach of contract, fraud, debt collection, personal injury and theft of trade secrets, among many others.  Business litigation is civil litigation that is business-related such as one partner suing another partner for breach of the partnership agreement or a vendor suing its business customer for failure to pay for goods purchased or a business suing an ex-employee for soliciting its clients or for disclosing trade secrets the employee learned of while working for the business.

Most of the time, the object of business litigation is to obtain money damages.  This is true for debt collection and fraud and many other actions.  But there are also times when the remedy sought is stopping or forcing an action, i.e, an injunction, either mandatory or otherwise such as in the case of an ex-employee stealing clients or disclosing trade secrets where mere money damages would not provide adequate relief.

 

Business litigation is often time-consuming and expensive and comes with inherent risks to the client.  In fact, it is not unusual that the outcome of litigation has a significant impact on the ability of my business client to survive and prosper in the dynamic and ultra-competitive business world.
