Litigation Lawyers in Malden

Commercial Litigation in Malden, Massachusetts is civil litigation that arises out of a business transaction, or some other conflict between two businesses, or between a business and a customer. It can appear out of nowhere, and arise out of almost any business matter.

In Malden, Massachusetts, litigation is confusing and expensive. While it can come up between sophisticated companies, it can just as quicklyy involve individuals who would never guess that they'd one day be involved in a commercial litigation dispute in Malden, Massachusetts. It can arise from the most informal business transactions, such as a homeowner selling a piece of furniture to his neighbor.

Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Malden, Massachusetts

Commercial Leases: Despite the rise of the Internet, and e-commerce, most businesses in Malden, Massachusetts still need a physical location to operate. This space is typically rented from another party, under terms laid out in a commercial lease. These leases can lead to disagreements, if one party breaks them, such as by failing to pay rent on time, failure to provide access to the property under the agreed-upon terms, etc.

Sales of Real Estate: When buying real estate in Malden, Massachusetts, a lot of things can go wrong, possibly making commercial litigation crucial. In these cases, things like title defects (when the seller doesn't directly own the land or house that they're selling), physical defects in the property that weren't disclosed to the buyer, or a buyer's failure to tender payment on time, among other things, can all lead to commercial litigation.

Sale of Goods: Buying and selling personal property is far more typical than buying and selling real estate in Malden, Massachusetts. Consequently, it's also more common for commercial litigation to arise out of disagreements concerning the sale or purchase of goods, as opposed to land. Some common problems that can come up in the sale of goods are a seller's failure to deliver the right product on time, or the buyer failing to pay the price that they agreed on. Most of the time, reasonable, professional people can settle these disagreements amongst themselves. However, in fairly rare cases, they have to resort to commercial litigation when a negotiated settlement is unrealistic.

Business Loans: In Malden, Massachusetts, it's typical for new businesses to require a loan from a bank to get started. This can, sometimes, lead to disputes between the borrower and lender. For instance, the borrower might habitually fail to make payments on time. This will lead to the lender trying to collect, and possibly resorting to commercial litigation.

Breach of Contract: When a Malden, Massachusetts business agrees to provide something of value (a product or service) in exchange for something else of value (typically money), a contract is formed. A contract, put simply, is any agreement that the law will enforce. Contracts can be very simple, or incredibly intricate. In either case, if one party fails to perform under the terms of the contract, commercial litigation is one way to resolve the ensuing conflict.
