Business and commercial law are so frequently paired together because both areas of law feature multiple crossover issues. Most attorneys familiar with one of law are usually well versed in the other.

Business law: This area falls under the jurisdiction of both state and federal laws. The foundation is built on federal law, which oversees stocks, investments, workplace safety, employment laws, and the environment. States can build on top of that, though, with their own laws – in these areas and others – in the form of licensing requirements and regulations for starting and running a company.

Commercial law: The Uniform Commercial Code bears the responsibility for regulating commercial law in the United States. The UCC, which debuted in 1952, is a set of laws that governs commercial transactions. Every state have adopted at least some part of the UCC – Louisiana and Puerto Rico only some, while American Samoa hasn’t at all – but every state is free to do what they want.

For a business owner, it can be tempting to negotiate a merger on your own. If you’re a homeowner fighting against a major manufacturer, you’re already at a distinct disadvantage. If you’re about to retire and you’ve discovered your nest egg is gone, you need a lawyer, not another broker. When it comes to the complicated rules and regulations wrapped around business and commercial law, you need all the help you can get.


Breaking up is hard to do, especially for businesses. It can be incredibly complicated. It can be emotionally charged. The input and advice of objective, experienced counsel can prevent lengthy – and costly – litigation that all-too-often concludes with unhappy parties on both sides and can, instead lead to a more productive, reasonable resolution.

Disagreements between joint business owners – whether they’re simply partners, fellow members of a limited liability corporation, or shareholders of a larger entity – can include differences over operating responsibilities, the division of assets and/or liabilities, possession of intellectual property, questions over non-compete stipulations, and future ownership and management after the partnership’s dissolution. Our Colorado corporate 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.

Dispute resolution that avoids expensive litigation altogether is almost always preferable, but it’s not always the most practical solution. Because Burg Simpson’s Colorado commercial litigation lawyers are recognized and respected as experienced trial attorneys, they bring that reputation and knowledge to your negotiations so that you can resolve disputes before they ever reach the courtroom – if at all possible. But when negotiations hit an impasse, or for any other reason that business termination escalates to the point of litigation, Burg Simpson’s veteran dispute resolution attorneys will fight for you in the courtroom.


As far as the law is concerned, there are two categories of fraud:

Business Fraud: An intentional misrepresentation of important facts, or failure to disclose those facts, causing another party to rely and change their position – to their detriment. Elements of business fraud include:

  • False representation of fact made by a person or corporation.
  • Knowledge that the representation was false when it was made.
  • An intention to get or induce the plaintiff to act (or refrain from acting) in reliance on the representation.
  • Damage occurred to the plaintiff as a result of the reliance.

Consumer Fraud: This occurs when, in the context of a business transaction, false statements of fact are made, the person or corporation making false statements knew that they were false at the time, and that the other party relied on those false statements to their detriment. Examples of consumer fraud include:

  • Insurance fraud.
  • Mail fraud.
  • Charity fraud.
  • Digital fraud.
  • Creditor fraud.
  • Mortgage fraud.
  • Telemarketing fraud.
  • Investment fraud.
  • Disaster fraud.
  • Identity theft

Fraud has become all too common in today’s “me first” culture. The media reports on tales of identity theft, credit card fraud, investment scams, nearly every day. If you need a strong courtroom advocate in a financial or investment dispute, the civil litigation lawyers at Burg Simpson can help. Call us today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced trial attorneys.


Burg Simpson’s Colorado corporate attorneys deal with a wide array of business and commercial litigation matters. Our expert business litigation lawyers are eager to help you whether you’re a C-corporation, a limited partnership, an S-corp, a sole proprietorship, a family business, or just an individual with any issue related to business law.

Business and commercial law can sometimes appear to have more questions than answers – even for experts. So we’ve put together a comprehensive Commercial Litigation FAQ HERE  to help clear up some of the cloudier parts of this area of law. But don’t think you can read through it and argue your own case. This is a dense part of Colorado law, and nothing can replace an in-person consultation with a Denver product liability attorney. Burg Simpson will walk through every step of your situation with you. Call us before it’s too late to help.
