  • Fraud, misrepresentation, failure to disclose
  • Deceptive trade practices
  • Tortious interference with business relationships
  • Shareholder disputes

Why You Need An Experienced Commercial Litigation Lawyer

When a business faces a dispute that may rise to the level of litigation, involving an experienced commercial litigation attorney early in the process is critical. A seasoned commercial litigator can gather evidence, retain appropriate experts, preserve relevant electronically stored information, and work to achieve a successful outcome. 

Our highly skilled strategists will guide you through all aspects of commercial litigation, including:

  • Case evaluation
  • Investigation
  • Pre-suit negotiation
  • Potential settlement
  • Pleadings
  • Discovery (depositions, subpoenas, e-discovery, document production)
  • Dispositive motions and hearings
  • Jury selection
  • Trial
  • Appeal

You can depend on us to assess the merits of your case and identify potential obstacles to recovery so that you can make informed choices. If a negotiated settlement cannot be reached, we will bring to bear comprehensive knowledge of procedural and substantive law, attention to detail, thorough preparation, and formidable trial skills to achieve positive results. 

Available Remedies and Damages in Chicago Commercial Litigation

Vaziri Law LLC regularly collaborates with a respected network of valuation experts, financial professionals, and industry specialists to conduct comprehensive damages assessments. Depending on the circumstances, the following damages and remedies may be available:

  • Compensatory or economic damages to recover actual financial losses resulting from the breach or tort (e.g. lost profits, royalties, loss of market value)
  • Consequential and incidental damages for certain losses arising from an indirect but foreseeable result of the breach (e.g. loss of use, restitution, loss of goodwill)
  • Liquidated damages or money damages paid in the event of a breach, provided that such damages are agreed to and stipulated in the contract
  • Punitive damages to punish the defendant for acting in an illegal or egregious manner and to deter others from similar wrongdoing
  • Attorney fees and costs are usually only recoverable if the agreement provides for them
  • Rescission to cancel the contract and release both parties from further performance
  • Reformation or a modification of the terms of a contract to reflect the original intent of the parties
  • Specific performance requires the breaching party to perform its obligations under the contract when monetary compensation is not an option (e.g. delivering goods or services)
  • Injunctive relief, such as temporary restraining order (TRO) or temporary or permanent injunctions, either in addition to or in lieu of monetary damages

Trust our legal team to work strategically to pursue damages that consider all your present and future losses.
