There are many types of litigation a person may go through, but perhaps the most complicated are business litigation and tax litigation. Business disputes may occur between and within businesses, and individuals can pursue a claim to recover lost monetary damages and other relief. Tax litigation is necessary when there is a tax controversy that must be resolved, typically in the United States Tax Court. When any of these issues arise, it is important that individuals speak to a litigation lawyer who can represent them in the proper court and ensure their rights are upheld.
Business litigation can be detrimental to a business. It can ruin relationships, take focus away from general operations, and have many other negative impacts. A few of the most common disputes that arise in business litigation include:
All of these disputes involve very complex issues and a Chicago litigation lawyer can help with all of them.

The type of tax, the type of taxpayer, and other facts and circumstances will determine which court to a taxpayer will file a Petition or Complaint.
