Commercial Litigation

Commercial real estate litigation generally arises out of disputes between landlords and tenants, developers and construction companies, or buyers and sellers. The most common type of litigation involves breach of contract claims. Other common causes of action in commercial real estate litigation include breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, misrepresentation, and negligence.

In a typical breach of contract claim in commercial real estate litigation, one party to the contract alleges that the other party has not lived up to their obligations under the agreement. For example, a tenant may sue a landlord for failing to make repairs to the property that are required by the lease agreement. Or, a construction company may sue a developer for failure to pay for work that was completed within the terms of the contract.

Breach of fiduciary duty claims are also common in commercial real estate litigation. A fiduciary duty is a legal obligation to act in the best interests of another party. For example, a real estate broker owes a fiduciary duty to their client to disclose all material information about a property that they are trying to sell. If the broker fails to do this, and the buyer suffers damages as a result, the buyer may sue the broker for breach of fiduciary duty.

Fraud, misrepresentation, and negligence claims can also arise in commercial real estate litigation. Fraud occurs when a person or team makes a false representation to another, with the intent to deceive them. If a landlord tells a tenant that a property is zoned for commercial use when it is actually zoned for residential use, the tenant may have a claim for fraud against the landlord. Misrepresentation occurs when a statement is not true, but does not do so with the intent to deceive. If a real estate agent tells a potential buyer that a property is in good condition when it is actually in poor condition, the buyer may have a claim for misrepresentation against the agent.

Finally, negligence claims can arise when one party fails to take reasonable care to avoid causing harm to another party. If a landlord fails to make repairs to a property that create unsafe conditions for tenants, the tenants may have a negligence claim against the landlord.



When it comes to titles, there are a few different types of disputes that can arise. The first is when two parties both claim ownership of the same property. This can happen when there is an error in the public records, or when someone tries to sell property they don’t actually own. Another type of dispute occurs when someone claims ownership of part of another person’s property. This might happen if someone builds a fence or structure that encroaches on their neighbor’s land, for example.

Title disputes can be complicated and time-consuming to resolve, which is why it’s often best to hire an attorney who specializes in this area of law. An experienced attorney will know how to navigate the legal system and negotiate with the other party (or parties) involved in the dispute. They can also help to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for any damages that have been incurred.
