Litigation Lawyers in Southfield

Commercial Litigation in Southfield, Michigan 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 Southfield, Michigan, you should expect any form of commercial litigation to be expensive and perplexing. While large and sophisticated companies are well-equipped to deal with civil litigation, and are usually the ones facing it, civil litigation in Southfield, Michigan can also arise between those who are not nearly as accustomed to handling it, such as individuals and small businesses.

Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Southfield, Michigan

Commercial Leases: Despite the rise of the Internet, and e-commerce, most businesses in Southfield, Michigan 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 Southfield, Michigan, 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 Southfield, Michigan. 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: When a business is started up in Southfield, Michigan, one of the initial steps is usually to take out a loan from a bank. However, this is a perplexing process, and there are many things that can go wrong. If the borrower fails to make the required payments, or the lender attempts to defraud the buyer, civil litigation is a strong possibility.

Breach of Contract: Whenever a business in Southfield, Michigan agrees to provide a product or service in exchange for something of value (usually money), a legally-binding agreement, called a "contract," is created. If either party fails to perform their end of the bargain, they have breached the contract, and commercial litigation is a possible way to settle the dispute.
