If you’re the owner of a company – or, indeed, if you work within management or human resources for any kind of business – you may have heard of a “commercial litigator”. Commercial and corporate law can be a fairly complex field, with a sizeable amount of terminology to understand and remember, and, for that reason, many of us aren’t sure of exactly what it is that a commercial litigator does. Luckily, Prosperity Law employs a number of highly experienced individuals that count commercial litigation among their skills and job titles; so here, they can explain exactly what it means to work within this specialist field, and how this particular type of legal expertise could help you in the future.
So What Does It Mean?
In simple terms, commercial litigation refers to the branch of law that deals with disputes and legal issues arising within a business context. Therefore, a commercial litigator is a specialist lawyer who works on cases that focus on business practice.
Exactly What Kinds of Cases Can a Commercial Litigator Work On?
As you can imagine, commercial law is a wide field and can often feature some complex, sensitive and high powered cases. Here are a few of the branches and elements of commercial law in which a commercial litigator would have experience:
- Contract law
- Labour law
- Consumer protection
- Trademark law
- Intellectual property law
- Patent law
- Companies law
- Corporate governance
- Competition (or antitrust) law
- International trade law
- Environmental law
- Partnership disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Employee rights
Sometimes, a commercial litigator will also work on cases that “overlap” with other areas of law, such as those connected with commercial property.
Do I Need to Hire a Commercial Litigator?
If you run a company of any kind, but particularly one that employs a number of staff members, it is highly recommended that you look into legal representation. However honest and well-administrated your business may be, it is still always difficult to foretell the possibility of any dispute or issue arising in the future. Without legal protection, your organisation may be at risk, and, should a problem arise, matters may prove particularly costly – in terms of both finance and reputation.
When Should I Look For a Commercial Litigator?
The best time is right now. If you are already involved in a legal dispute to any degree, searching for and briefing a new legal representative may add more stress and pressure to the situation and may not offer suitable time for them to build a case with you. It is always a better idea to find and employ a commercial litigator to protect your company before any issues arise, as your chosen specialist will also be able to advise you on how to safeguard yourself and your company against any legal issues that might arise in the future.
