Litigation Lawyers in Green Bay

In Green Bay, Wisconsin, "commercial litigation" refers to any legal dispute between business entities, arising from some type of business transaction, which ends up being settled through the legal system. It can arise in almost any situation, at any time.

In Green Bay, Wisconsin commercial litigation can be very difficult and costly. While it usually involves two business in a legal dispute with one another, it might also arise between average individuals who were engaged in an informal business transaction (such as someone selling a car to her neighbor), and never would have guessed that they might be thrown into a commercial litigation case in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Green Bay, Wisconsin

Commercial Leases: Despite the rise of the Internet, and e-commerce, most businesses in Green Bay, Wisconsin still need a physical location to operate. This space is normally 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 Green Bay, Wisconsin, 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 really 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: It's far more frequent for individuals to buy personal property, rather than real estate, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. And, like any transaction, the sale of goods can lead to civil litigation if one of the parties feels that the other did not perform under the agreed-upon terms. For instance, if a buyer fails to pay the agreed price for the goods, or the seller delivers a late, defective, or incomplete order, there is going to be a disagreement. In some cases, these disagreements lead to commercial litigation.

Business Loans: In Green Bay, Wisconsin, 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 business or individual in Green Bay, Wisconsin promises another entity to provide a product or service in exchange for something of value (almost always, but not necessarily, money), they have entered a legally-binding agreement called a "contract." Both parties are now obligated to perform their commitments, as laid out in the agreement, and if one party fails to do so, the other can use commercial litigation to seek redress for any losses suffered as a result of this breach.
