Commercial litigation, such as a breach of contract, represents a common legal maneuver initiated by both individuals and businesses. Plaintiffs involved in commercial litigation typically want to correct a wrong like ensuring a defendant honors a contractual agreement. Filing a lawsuit to seek compensation for a personal injury caused by the actions of a company represents another example of commercial litigation. Defendants involved in cases that invoke commercial statutes typically hire licensed attorneys that fight aggressively to protect their rights.

Whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant, working with an experienced and accomplished commercial litigation lawyer is imperative in obtaining a favorable outcome to your case. Gaines, LLC is highly rated law firm that has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation cases.

Types of Commercial Litigation

When you search for a licensed commercial lawyer, you want a legal expert that not only wins cases, but also possesses the legal acumen to work with both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of cases. Gaines, LLC is that firm.

We represent clients in all types of commercial litigation. Here are some of the most common types of commercial litigation cases:


Fraud cases require the support of considerable documentation, from a copy of a bill of sale to the terms written into a leasing contract. Our team of commercial litigation attorneys successfully proves fraudulent intent, which requires superior knowledge of acceptable business practices, as well as how commercial law addresses business fraud. Gaines LLC has gained the experience and knowledge required to help clients pursue fraud cases against individuals or other businesses. Since it is rare to uncover explicit intent to defraud someone or a company, our thorough team of attorneys meticulously reviews records to discover the true intentions of fraud, as well as prove clients followed every protocol for delivering goods and services.

Breach of Contract

Running a business requires the creation and adherence to contracts. If you find yourself embroiled in a contract dispute, Gaines LLC is there to help you resolve the dispute and if necessary, seek damages caused by a contract breach. We also defend clients against allegations of contract breaches. We firmly believe you deserve the most accomplished team of commercial litigation lawyers that possess the capability of handling either side of a contract dispute. At Gaines LLC, we ensure you understand the legal process as it pertains to a contract dispute and present the options you have for pursing a case or defending yourself against false breach of contract charges.

Non-Compete Agreements

Businesses draft non-compete agreements to prevent employees from leaving a company to work for a competitor. Non-compete agreements typically last for a year or two, but we have crafted agreements that last longer than two years. From restaurant managers to electric engineers, a non-compete agreement specifies a geographic area where a former employee is not allowed to work, if he or she remains employed in the same business niche. For example, it does not make sense to want a non-compete agreement for a former employee in the information technology industry who decides to change careers by making the transition into the retail industry as a sales professional. Gaines LLC has represented both employers and employees in non-compete commercial litigation cases.

Here are some other types of commercial litigation cases the experienced team of lawyers at Gaines LLC handle:

  • Mechanic’s liens

  • Construction defects
