Colorado Business / Commercial Litigation Attorneys

Commercial Litigation Overview – Burg Simpson

Commercial law encompasses everything that relates to “the rights, relations and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade and sales.” Increasingly, this area of law has been organized in the Uniform Commercial Code, which has been adopted in almost all 50 states.

Burg Simpson’s Colorado commercial litigation lawyers have decades of experience navigating the complex world of business law and commercial litigation. We work with all kinds of clients, such as corporations, general and limited partnerships, limited liability companies, and sole proprietorships, among others. We even represent individuals with issues of business and commercial law. We will resolve your case, whether it’s through a negotiated settlement, arbitration, and even if takes a trial by jury.

We’re particularly well-versed in some of the most common areas of business and commercial law, such as:

  • Breach of contract: This is the failure of a party “to perform any term of a contract, written or oral, without a legitimate legal excuse.” Breach of contract is the most common cause for any civil lawsuit.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty: A fiduciary duty is one party’s obligation to act in the best financial interest of another party. When that obligation is forsaken, then a breach of fiduciary duty can occur.
  • Corporate disagreements: This can encompass a wide range of business dealings, such as business mergers, acquisitions, and dissolutions, to name just a few.
