In Raleigh, North Carolina, commercial litigation is any legal dispute that involves some type of business transaction.

Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Raleigh, North Carolina

Commercial Leases: Despite the rise of the Internet, and e-commerce, most businesses in Raleigh, North Carolina 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 Raleigh, North Carolina, 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 Raleigh, North Carolina. 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 Raleigh, North Carolina, 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: When a Raleigh, North Carolina 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.
