What is Commercial Litigation?

Commercial litigation involves two or more parties who turn to the legal system to resolve a dispute that arose from a business transaction.


The commercial litigation lawyers at Shepard, Smith, Kohlmyer & Hand, P.A. recognize that commercial disputes are becoming harder to navigate as laws and regulatory requirements change, corporate scrutiny increases, and transactions occur across domestic and international borders. As a result, businesses must proactively take steps to reduce their risk.

Place your Florida commercial litigation matters in the hands of our experienced attorneys.

Our commercial litigation attorneys recognize that our clients have individual business goals; therefore, we design litigation strategies that meet the specific objectives of our business clients. 


When a company faces diverse legal issues that threaten the effective operation of its business, it needs skillful attorneys who provide cost-effective, client-focused legal solutions. 


Shepard, Smith, Kohlmyer & Hand P.A. attorneys provide sound legal advice to businesses throughout Florida. Our experienced commercial litigators use their extensive background to craft strategies that solve complex legal problems.
