Litigation Lawyers in Taunton

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

In Taunton, Massachusetts, litigation is perplexing 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 Taunton, 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 Taunton, Massachusetts

Commercial Leases: Despite the rise of the Internet, and e-commerce, most businesses in Taunton, Massachusetts still need a physical location to operate. This space is usually 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: If you're buying a house, office space, or a plot of land in Taunton, Massachusetts, you're probably aware of the fact that something can go wrong at any stage of the process. Whether the seller's title is defective (they don't actually have the ownership interest that they claim to be conveying to you), or there's a physical defect on the property that wasn't disclosed, commercial litigation might be the only option to resolve the disagreements that such problems are likely to create.

Sale of Goods: The sale or purchase of personal property is another common source of commercial litigation in Taunton, Massachusetts. For instance, a restaurant owner might order tomatoes from a supplier, and fail to pay for them. The owner might argue that the tomatoes were rotten and unusable when they arrived, and he therefore does not have to pay. Obviously, if the two parties can't resolve this dispute somehow, they will have 2 options: simply let it go, and likely never do business with one another again, or go to court, and resolve it through civil litigation.

Business Loans: Usually, when a business gets started in Taunton, Massachusetts, it has to take out a loan from a financial institution. If the business fails to make timely payments on the loan, it's possible that litigation will result.

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

How Can a Taunton, Massachusetts Commercial Litigation Lawyer Help?

Business owners in Taunton, Massachusetts are probably aware of the fact that commercial litigation can always be just around the corner, and just about any business deal that goes bad can trigger it.
