Top Rated Business Litigation Lawyers Columbus, Ohio

Commercial disputes are complicated. They often involve complex business transactions, contracts, and more often than not, numerous parties. These disputes are some of the most difficult cases to litigate due to the voluminous number of exhibits and documents that must be collected, sifted through, summarized, and presented to the court.

Apart from the complexity of the facts, prevailing contractual law and remedies, especially under the uniform commercial code, is often misunderstood and misapplied. Clients that have not been appropriately advised by competent business attorneys can overestimate the net value of their case or inadvertently expose their company to unnecessary liability. Certain situations may require a non-breaching party to take actions to mitigate damages. In other instances, breaching parties can take a number of steps to mitigate potential liability by offering viable alternatives to its performance under a contract.
