Litigation Types

Business litigation is much more than haggling over contracts or wages. There are different practice areas and specializations that can shed light on many different aspects of a business.

There are a number of types of litigation:

Civil litigation – Area of practice that involved money as the settlement instead of the criminal charges
Mesothelioma litigation – Specialized commercial litigation that involves business but litigates between companies and individuals who have been exposed to mesothelioma.
Commercial litigation – involves litigation that involves at least one business entity as a party.
Personal injury litigation – Individuals seek legal remedies for an injury or accident.
Patent litigation – Specializes in legal disputes between two businesses or an individual and a business, where one of the parties claims that their patent or trademark has been infringed upon purposely by another person.
Public interest litigation – A court files a lawsuit in an effort to enforce maintenance or protect the well-being of a community. This type of litigation may focus on public health concerns, environmental issues, or other areas where people may be at risk.
