Contract Disputes

Contracts are essential for businesses to survive.  Yet, contracts are often lengthy and complex, including legalese that does not make sense to the average business person.  This can lead to disputes over the terms of a contract and lead to litigation. 

Many times, however, a contract’s terms are as clear as day, and one party simply failed to perform up to the requirements.  When a contract is breached, litigation is sometimes required to enforce the terms of the contract.  Damages for breach of contract include the actual damages the injured party occurs as a result of the breach, including sometimes incidental and consequential damages that were reasonably contemplated by the parties. 

Business contracts often contain other clauses that affect damages and litigation, including arbitration clauses, liquidated damages, attorney’s fees, choice of law provisions, and more.  When you have a dispute over a business contract, give us a call to see how we can help.  Our fees are extremely reasonable and we will attempt to give you an estimate of how much the dispute will cost before you engage in the litigation. 

In addition, not all contracts have to be written.  Sometimes contracts are oral agreements, sealed with a handshake.  In these situations, there can be disputes regarding what the terms of the actual agreement included.  Sometimes oral contract disputes can be solved simply by reviewing supporting documents or sitting down with both parties, and sometimes they have to be litigated.  In other words, don’t rule out hiring a contract attorney simply because you don’t have anything in writing.  Call us today to discuss how we can help with your claim.
