Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation: def. The process of resolving a dispute related to business or commercial rights or obligations through action in a court of law.

Our goal is to protect and defend your business interests.

Complex Business and Commercial Litigation

In today's fast-paced, global commercial environment, disputes between businesses are all but inevitable. Litigation can be costly, but the failure to adequately protect legal interests can be devastating to a company. The right legal representation is an investment, not merely an expense; even so, businesses must navigate the tension between securing the most effective advocacy possible and managing litigation costs.

Shullman Fugate offers commercial clients the best of both worlds, featuring attorneys with decades of commercial litigation experience that includes years of practice in Florida's largest law firm, a global litigation firm with offices in dozens of countries. The firm's attorneys utilize advanced technology to keep client costs low while offering the benefit of their extensive experience in the most complex commercial matters.

Efficient Resolution of Business-to-Business Disputes

Shullman Fugate concentrates its commercial litigation practice in the resolution of major disputes between businesses, including breach of contract; unfair and deceptive trade practices; tortious interference with business relationships or contracts; violation of non-competition and non-disclosure agreements; fraudulent misrepresentation, infringement of copyright and trademark; defamation; and more.

The firm has found that one key to efficient resolution of business-to-business disputes is accurate analysis of a case in light of the client's particular needs. The attorneys of Shullman Fugate begin by working with each client to identify and clarify the client's goals for the litigation process, then evaluate the strengths and challenges of the client's position. The attorneys then use their extensive litigation experience and knowledge of commercial law to craft a targeted approach to the desired outcome.

Because the firm's attorneys have a deep background in business litigation, they can provide clients with a cost-benefit analysis that minimizes the risk of either settling a case for less than it's worth or paying for a long, unnecessary court battle.

Client-Centered Advocacy

Shullman Fugate recognizes that each client is unique in its needs and ability to tolerate risk. Our goal is to give business clients answers to the questions they didn't know they needed to ask, so that they can make informed decisions. We believe that when our clients are empowered and armed with information, our attorneys are better able to advocate effectively for the outcomes clients need.
