Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Mequon, Wisconsin

Commercial Leases: Despite the rise of the Internet, and e-commerce, most businesses in Mequon, Wisconsin 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: Whether you're buying a house, an office building, or a vacant lot in Mequon, Wisconsin, there are plenty of things that can go awry in the process. For instance, the seller might fail to disclose an easement on the property, or a physical defect, which you only discover after the sale is final. Or, if you're the seller, the buyer might fail to pay on time. Such mishaps are almost sure to cause a dispute, and if the parties cannot resolve it amongst themselves, commercial litigation might be the only choice.

Sale of Goods: It's far more prevalent for individuals to buy personal property, rather than real estate, in Mequon, 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 conflict. In some cases, these disagreements lead to commercial litigation.

Business Loans: Usually, when a business gets started in Mequon, Wisconsin, 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 business or individual in Mequon, 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.
