Commercial litigation is any form of dispute which touches on a business relationship. For example, a business who breaches a commercial agreement or a sole trader whose negligence causes loss to its customer.  Other common forms of commercial disputes include breach of business agreements, product liability claims and commercial rent disputes.

No, if the dispute is of a commercial nature it doesn’t matter if you are an individual or a business. If you have grounds to sue a business for a breach of contract, individuals are entitled to enter into commercial litigation.

Depending on the type of case, commercial litigation may be dealt with in the District Court, Circuit Court, Commercial Court or High Court. Only if a dispute is in excess of €1 million and is urgent does it qualify for consideration in the commercial Court

At Clarke Jeffers & Co. Solicitors we always attempt to negotiate with the other side in order to save you the time and money associated with going to court. We can also use alternative dispute resolution methods such as arbitration and mediation to avoid costly litigation.
