Commercial Litigation & Contract Disputes

Contracts are legal instruments by which parties exchange promises, services, or goods. Although these agreements are typically entered into with the expectations of a beneficial relationship, disputes arise nonetheless. Contracts are broken for a variety of reasons which sometimes include intentional breaches due to the economic benefits one party may incur by breaching rather than honoring the contractual obligations. Other reasons include breach due to unexpected events/ conditions and the unwillingness of one contracting party to satisfy the contractual arrangements. These contractual arrangements are legally enforceable and therefore, more often than not, lead to litigation.

Leeson & Leeson represents clients in all stages of litigation and has successfully litigated disputes with some of the largest companies in Pennsylvania and the country. From the start of a dispute through its conclusion, our team provides clients with the information they need to make well-informed decisions. Leeson & Leeson advises business owners, financial institutions, corporations, governments, executives, directors, and more.

Thanks to our technical capabilities and expansive experience in contentious cross-border matters, our team has the necessary knowledge, insight, and awareness needed to guide clients through the sophisticated issues that often come with the territory.

For a successful outcome in any commercial dispute, risk management, ginancial viability, and optimizing resources are all of the utmost importance. Some firms have the legal acumen to handle litigation proceedings and legal research, but not all firms understand and properly evaluate the monetary impacts of litigation proceedings, including the expenses and investment in legal fees, evaluating return on investment of potential litigation as well as being prepared to rigorously litigate when the matter calls for a tough and intimidating advocate. Leeson & Leeson prides itself for having the financial understanding as well as the legal competency to evaluate and advocate effectively and efficiently.

Q: What is Commercial Litigation?

A: Simply put, commercial litigation is any legal dispute that centers around businesses and their dealings. If a party believes that they have, for one reason or another, incurred monetary damages, they may wish to engage in commercial litigation. Common monetary damages are often related to debt collection, contractual disputes, land, property, real estate, leases, rent, and insurance amongst other things.


Q: Can I Sue a Business When They Interfer with My Clients?
A: If your contractual or business relations have been interfered with by another individual or company, you might wish to consider filing a tortious interference lawsuit. These kinds of lawsuits are common when one party intentionally interferes with another party's contractual business dealings. Assuming your case is successful, you could receive compensation relating to mental distress, punitive damages, and more.

Q: What Is a Complex Business Dispute?
A: In some instances, a business dispute can be labeled complex. Generally, this occurs in 2 situations: (1) When multiple parties are involved. This increases the number of factors involved in the case, making it more complex; (2) When multiple venues are involved. For example, the involvement of state courts, federal courts, and numerous jurisdictions. A case can become quite complex when so many different venues become involved.
