Civil Litigation vs. Criminal Prosecution
“Commercial litigation” is a term used to refer to civil lawsuits between two parties in which at least one party, whether the plaintiff or the defendant, is a commercial entity. This includes businesses, partnerships, shareholders, employers, employees, entrepreneurs, corporations, and others.
Unlike criminal prosecutions, which seek criminal penalties against individuals and entities charged with various crimes, civil litigation allows a plaintiff to seek damages for injuries (or losses) caused by a defendant’s conduct or omissions. “Damages” refers to losses, often financial in nature, resulting from the plaintiff’s injuries. Note that, while “injuries” may be physical or emotional in nature, they are most often financial in commercial litigation cases.
