Laws Invoked in Commercial Litigation
Many commercial law cases are meant to protect consumers and businesses from harmful practices. Both state and federal laws exist to define and punish such practices and can be tried at either level.
At the federal level, the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Occupational Safety and Health Act exist as standards of operational procedure for businesses and government agencies in the United States. The United States Congress is tasked with enforcing federal commerce laws at this level
At the state level, the Uniform Commercial Code and the Florida Business Corporations Act work to protect businesses and their consumers from unfair and illegal practices. Every state has its own version of the Uniform Commercial Code modified to its unique needs.
