“Business Litigation” is the practice of law dealing with the legal problems arising from commercial and business relationships, including litigation of controversies arising from those relationships. “Business litigation law” includes evaluating, handling, and resolving such controversies before state courts, federal courts, administrative agencies, mediators, and arbitrators. Matters not qualifying for business litigation include areas of practice dealing with personal injury, routine collection matters, marital and family law, or workers’ compensation. Courts of “general jurisdiction” include state circuit courts, federal district courts, and courts of similar jurisdiction in other states, but not county courts.
