Business litigation can take many forms. From a breach of fiduciary duties to zoning disputes, these legal cases are often interwoven with complex federal and state laws. While many business litigation disputes are resolved outside of court, some may necessitate a trial.
Our team of Orlando business litigation lawyers at Bogin, Munns & Munns are prepared to assist you with your case. We can put our broad legal knowledge base to work for you, whether that’s advice on the mediation process or representation in the courtroom.
What Exactly Is Business Litigation?
Commercial law, business law, and corporate law are frequently confused or used interchangeably. While similar, they all refer to their own specific niche.
Commercial law is governed by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCO) and can involve subjects like bankruptcy or mortgages. Corporate law generally focuses on international trade or other similar large-scale operations. Business law, or litigation, aims to provide support to small and medium-size operations. Some specific cases of business litigation will be detailed below.
Common Orlando Business Litigation Cases
The term ‘business litigation’, like commercial law, or corporate law, is a catchall. It covers a wide breadth of legal situations, all related to litigation, codes, or business disputes. These are some common cases that are considered business litigation and could require legal expertise:
- Mergers and acquisitions.
- Your business is the subject of a lawsuit.
- Tax disputes.
- Embezzlement or a breach of fiduciary duties.
- Zoning or land use disagreements.
- The creation of a new business.
- Your business is facing an audit.
- Your business is involved in mediation or arbitration.
This is just a brief list. Business litigation can take many other shapes. Similarly, many of these cases involve legal advice, rather than legal action. Regardless of the specifics of your case, though, we can provide you with business litigation support.

Outcomes in a Business Litigation Case
If you are the subject of business litigation or seeking business litigation, there are generally three potential outcomes for your case:
You can think of this process as ‘trial lite’. During the arbitration, an arbiter is selected, who oversees a negotiation between both of the parties involved in the case. Each side will make their arguments, and the arbiter then determines the best possible settlement.
Mediation is very similar to arbitration, with one key difference. Instead of an arbiter, mediation uses a mediator. The mediator doesn’t decide the outcome of the case; they simply oversee the mediation. They’ll manage the conversation, but it’s on both parties to come to an agreement. If no agreement is reached, further legal action may be pursued.
A trial is the least common outcome for business disputes. It’s often more time-consuming and confrontational than mediation or arbitration. Because of this, those seeking a settlement or resolution tend to avoid a trial if possible.
Sometimes, though, trials are a necessary part of business litigation. If you’re gearing up for a trial, we have the legal tools to support you. Our team has trial advocacy specialists who can work in your corner. They’ll help you navigate the courtroom process and defend your rights.
Given the wide variety of business litigation cases, there’s no way to guarantee which end goal will apply to your case. Regardless, at Bogin, Munns & Munns, we’ll push for the most expedient and satisfying outcome.
