Commercial litigation is the term used to describe a legal dispute between businesses or companies, as opposed to between private individuals. (The term is generally used to refer to any disputes where there is some level of corporate involvement.) Commercial litigation cases tend to arise when one party seeks to claim some form of reimbursement, typically financial, from the other party. Court proceedings are normally begun when the first party comes to regard this reimbursement as otherwise difficult or impossible to obtain.
Commercial litigation is sometimes classified as a subset or subcategory of civil litigation. Both are similar in that they concern legal action that doesn’t involve any criminal charges.
They do exhibit several key differences though, chiefly amongst them being their complexity and resolution time. Civil litigation involves individuals, whose claims are normally more straightforward and thus easier to resolve. Commercial litigation, on the other hand, can encompass a much greater number of complicating factors, and so can take a lot longer to reach a resolution.
