Commercial litigation usually involves disputes between business entities within the context of a commercial transaction or commercial setting.  Most American commercial law is regulated by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), which has been adopted in one form or another by virtually all states. Violations of the UCC can, in some instances, lead to criminal charges if the public good appears to be at risks due to fraud or misrepresentation. In other instances, regulatory agencies may become involved and have the ability to assess fines for violations of the rules and regulations that come under their jurisdiction.

Since American commercial law is primarily concerned with the sale of goods and services, as well as financing credit transactions on these goods that are sold, and negotiable instruments of finance, there are many opportunities for errors and disputes to occur.
