What Is Commercial Litigation?
Commercial litigation consists of a range of lawsuits between two or more parties when at least one party involved is a business entity. Similar to other forms of civil litigation, both sides typically perform investigations, the plaintiff's attorney files the lawsuit, and both parties go before a jury or judge to try the case.
As both sides work to uncover the truth of the matter during the Los Angeles commercial litigation process, you can benefit from the services of our forensic accountants. Our financial investigations and analytical processes have helped countless clients and their legal representation present strong, cohesive cases.

What Types of Commercial Litigation Can We Assist With?
Our forensic accountants can help you resolve several commercial litigation problems in Los Angeles. Whether you've encountered an unexpected breach of contract dispute or a shareholder disagreement, we're ready to support you with our entire experience and resources.
Breach of Contract Disputes: This issue arises when the governing terms of a contract are not followed, which has a detrimental impact on one party. Particularly when a shareholder or business' money is involved, this form of dispute can quickly become contentious. Our team quantifies the economic damages and financial losses occurring due to a breach of contract. By thoroughly analyzing the financial data, we can help you arrive at a fair settlement.
IP Disputes: A company's Intellectual Property (IP) is vital to its long-term success and profitability. When IP is infringed upon or used without authorization by a third party, it's crucial to immediately seek an experienced forensic accountant. We have considerable experience quantifying economic damages in IP and intangible assets and presenting our findings in a simplistic, easy-to-follow manner. You can count on us to assess or prepare claims for reasonable royalties, lost profits, or unjust enrichment.
Employment Disputes: Even a single significant employment dispute can prove costly due to the potential damages and considerable legal fees. Ideally, such a situation can be resolved through efficient mediation long before the matter arrives in court. We evaluate the financial facts of the situation and offer unbiased consulting to help you reach a desirable settlement.
Insurance Claims: Our skill and experience at quantifying damages include insurance claims. We can research cases involving economic damages, particularly in cases involving personal injury, property damages and business personal property, and builder's risk. To reach a conclusion, we review industry data, inventory value, invoices, damages related to soft costs, corresponding support, and more.
Business Interruption Claims: Business interruptions, while unfortunate, are prone to happening unexpectedly. Whether your company is impacted by a natural disaster or machinery failure, you're going to need to file for damages incurred. We work diligently to calculate how much income you've lost due to the business interruption. By identifying, segregating, and analyzing costs and revenue before and after the incident, we can project what your sales and expenses would have been under normal operating conditions. This helps you file an accurate, thorough damages claim.
Shareholder Disputes: A shareholder dispute typically arises due to disagreements over the governance, goals, operations, or financial management of a business. We perform a detailed financial investigation to detect signs of undisclosed liabilities, fraudulent transactions, conflicts of interest, or partners involved in self-dealing. Identifying internal issues quickly can allow you to settle without your case ever going to court.
