Commercial Litigation

At Berlin Patten Ebling, we have experience representing all size businesses – from Fortune 500 companies to sole proprietorships. We have extensive experience prosecuting and defending business disputes in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitrations and before governmental bodies.

Commercial and business litigation matters including:

  • Breach of contract claims
  • Claims involving breaches of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements
  • Business dissolution disputes
  • Fraud and civil theft claims
  • Corporate Officer, Director & Shareholder Liability
  • Tortious Interference with Business Relationships
  • Defamation (slander and libel) claims

  • Injunctions and declaratory judgement actions
  • Title insurance claims and disputes

The focus of any business is the bottom line. Negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation are all viable tools for solving disputes. The heavy hammer of filing a lawsuit, may not provide the ideal economic approach. Experience and necessity provide our litigation team the insight to warrant an aggressive approach when the viability of a business is in peril. The process of determining which tool is best suited for solving a business dispute is our most valuable resource.

Involving an experienced commercial litigation attorney early in the process will help you understand your options, choose the best path forward, and execute on it. Berlin Patten Ebling will handle commercial litigation matters throughout the state of Florida.
