Corporate litigation or sometimes what is referred to as commercial litigation is basically defined as lawsuits against or by a business corporation. These lawsuits are what is refered to as litigations. There are many litigations that are involved in this topic and covering them would take forever to do so.
So, we will narrow the scoop down to the three most common litigations that are common in this field. We shall look at these three in depthly for your benefit. In the process of a business going about its day to day runninngs it can be sued for malpractice.
This is what is known as fraud or in other words practices that are deceptive, meaning they go against or not in line with what the business had stated in its constitution of practice. This lawsuit is not limited to the business only being sued but if a person who is an employee in the business shares information to the business competition which can be proven as harming the business, he or she can be sued by the business.this is known as abuse of the trust that had been placed upon him by the employer and the employer would be in line by taking this party to court.
This is the first litigation that is generally witnessed very commonly.The second type of litigation that is also commonly witnessed is conflicts between the employee and the employer. These conflicts arise as a result of discrimination in the business premises be on grounds of race or nationality or sex, health disputes like maternity leave or injury while at work or in other cases overtime issues where the employee feels he or she has been poorly compensated for his services during overtime hours.

Also, when an employee had signed an agreement that in case of any termination of his work, he would not go to the business competitors to seek work can also be seen and brought up as a litigation. All these practices can result in court cases.
The third form of litigation that we shall look at is contract breaching. This is an outcome of maybe a representative of the business refusing to keep or going against the bargain that they had struck up with the business.If he goes against this, then he is in direct breach of any contract that they had agreed upon, drawn and signed.
There can also be interference from third parties that try to prevent the proper execution of the contract that had been drawn up by the business and the intended, initial party. This can result to court proceedings as a result of it.
These practices we have discussed here are basic examples although there are very many more. But these three paint the broad picture of what corporate litigation is all about.
