Business Courts in the United States
Business Courts, sometimes referred to as Commercial Courts, are trial courts that hear business disputes primarily or exclusively. The modern creation of specialized Business Courts in the United States began in the early 1990s, and has expanded greatly in the last twenty-five years.
Business and Commercial Courts exist internationally as well, including, for example, England and Wales, Toronto and Quebec, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Hong Kong, Belgium, Bermuda, New South Wales and Victoria Australia, Northern Ireland, Qatar, Dubai, Spain, France, Switzerland, Tanzania, Rwanda, Lesotho, the British Virgin Islands, and Malaysia. New English language commercial courts have been created in Paris, Frankfurt, and the Netherlands.
