What Is Business and Commercial Law?
All business owners know that just about every aspect of operations is governed by a host of laws and regulations. In addition to following the laws in their state, businesses must also abide by federal law.
The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a set of laws that govern commercial transactions. The UCC bears the bulk of the responsibility for regulating commercial law in the United States. The UCC was introduced in 1952, and every state has adopted at least some part of the UCC.
Businesses may be involved in litigation for a host of different reasons. Litigation may be required to resolve disputes involving contracts, partnership agreements, shareholder oppression, etc. Allegations of fraud represent another common area of business litigation.
Whatever the situation your business is facing, Burg Simpson can provide knowledgeable support and legal guidance. Our commercial litigation attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of business operations and legal strategy for companies of all sizes across multiple industries.

When Do You Need a Business Attorney?
When it comes to the complex rules and regulations wrapped into business and commercial law, you need all the assistance you can get. One of the biggest mistakes business owners can make is trying to handle legal matters on their own. A misstep can not only cost you money, time, and lots of aggravation, but the future of your business could be in jeopardy.
Commercial litigation attorneys at Burg Simpson regularly handle a host of complex business matters. Situations where it is best to entrust your case to a seasoned litigator include:
In business, disagreements are inevitable. The question is how to move forward.
Disputes may arise among business partners, fellow members of a limited liability corporation, or shareholders of a larger entity. Common sources of disagreement include operating responsibilities, the division of assets and/or liabilities, possession of intellectual property, questions over non-compete stipulations, shareholder oppression, future ownership and management after the partnership’s dissolution, and more.
Burg Simpson can assist you with the following:
- Business Disputes
- Contract Disputes
- Corporate Partnerships and LLC Disputes
- Financial, Security, and Investment Disputes
Our national business and commercial litigation lawyers can protect your interests; walk you through existing contracts, obligations, and liabilities; and ensure your compliance with the legal and regulatory dissolution requirements. Although dispute resolution that avoids expensive litigation is almost always preferable, it is not always the most practical solution.
The business litigation lawyers at Burg Simpson are nationally recognized and respected as experienced trial and arbitration attorneys. We bring this knowledge and reputation to the negotiating table.
Often, we are able to resolve business disputes without having to go to court. However, if negotiations hit an impasse or a trial becomes inevitable, our attorneys will fight for your best interest in the courtroom.
Breaking up is hard to do, especially for businesses. It can be incredibly complicated and emotionally charged, which is why enlisting the services of a business litigation attorney can help to smoothly resolve matters.
The input and advice of objective, experienced counsel can prevent lengthy – and costly – litigation that frequently concludes with unhappy parties on both sides. Working with a commercial attorney may lead to a more productive, reasonable resolution.
Our commercial litigation attorneys have extensive experience with bet-the-company litigation. These cases involve situations where the future of a business is at stake as a result of complex situations such as:
- Shareholder litigation
- Intellectual property and trade secret litigation
- Product liability lawsuits
- Loss of a founder or other key talent
- Workplace and industrial accidents
- Investigations by state and federal governments
In the event that the business cannot be preserved, it is also in your best interest to have an attorney help you manage the dissolution of the partnership, the sale of the company, etc. Burg Simpson understands the need to handle business breakups with sensitivity while ensuring that your rights and interests are fully protected.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty
A fiduciary is an individual or entity responsible for managing the finances and/or assets of another party. If you believe that someone entrusted to act as a fiduciary for your business breached their duty – or your business is facing accusations of breach of fiduciary duty – you need experienced legal counsel to act on your behalf.
The commercial litigation attorneys at Burg Simpson will fully evaluate the fiduciary duty between parties. We strive to resolve disputes and litigation as efficiently as possible while fighting for a favorable outcome for our clients.
Real Estate Transactions
The commercial real estate market changes all the time. A lot of money is involved in the buying and selling of real estate, and a number of state and federal laws may apply to any transaction.
Burg Simpson has extensive experience representing businesses in real estate and land use litigation. In addition to aiding businesses in the purchase and sale of assets, we are also seasoned litigators when it comes to disputes over zoning laws, non-disclosure of defects, real estate agent errors, and more.
Our firm also represents property owners in special districts litigation. This includes fighting to regain control of special districts that land developers improperly use for their own benefit.
Whether you are a collections agency or a different type of business seeking payment of a debt, getting the money you are owed can be extremely challenging. You also need to stay within the law when it comes to communicating with debtors and other practices.
Burg Simpson can aid you in the process of debt collections. Our firm pays close attention to changes in legislation and can help you fight to get the debt paid.
Fraud is one of the most serious challenges facing both businesses and consumers alike. If you own a business, fraudulent actions can cost you hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.
Burg Simpson provides litigation services for a wide range of business fraud matters. Our attorneys can investigate issues such as misrepresentation, failure to disclose facts, theft, and more and fight to recover compensation for the damages your company has sustained.
Fraud litigation often arises because of the bad acts of an individual inside the business or a third-party vendor. Cases we handle include:
- Money fraud
- Payroll and invoice fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Tax fraud
- Skimming funds
- Misappropriation of funds and assets
- Investment fraud
- Theft of intellectual property
- Securities fraud
- Identity theft
- Digital fraud
In extreme cases, instances of fraud may give rise to whistleblower lawsuits. Whistleblowers play a crucial role in exposing corporate wrongdoing.
Burg Simpson has in-depth knowledge of the False Claims Act, the federal legislation that protects those who blow the whistle on companies that defraud the U.S. government. We also have extensive experience representing the victims of fraud – consumers and businesses alike – in settlement negotiations and at trial.
Business law matters require diligent handling by knowledgeable legal professionals. The attorneys and staff at Burg Simpson are fully equipped to handle the legal needs of your business. Whether you are starting a business, making a real estate transaction, seeking to resolve a dispute, or ending a business, Burg Simpson can take the case and fight for the outcome you deserve.
