Commercial Litigation

Clifford & Raihala Practice Areas - Commercial Litigation

Commercial Litigation is common in today’s competitive marketplace. Successful preparation for business disputes requires a combination of business, industry and litigation expertise.

Commercial cases can involve any number of issues, such as breach of contract, violations of trust (breach of fiduciary duties), real property issues or business torts (intentional interference of business relations, conversion, negligence, disputes with vendors or professional advisors, etc.).
