Our attorneys are experienced litigators well-prepared to handle corporate disputes
When we are involved from the beginning in helping you to choose and form your business entity, we will draft sound contracts and other documents aimed at helping you to avert future conflicts. But even corporations with firm foundations can be faced with disputes involving competitors, partners, shareholders, employees and other groups. With a thorough understanding of your business goals and structure, we are in a position to skillfully represent your interests in litigation. Whenever possible, we seek negotiated settlements that save time and money, but we are fully prepared to represent you in court when that is your best option for a successful outcome.
Our litigators help you understand and manage breach of contract claims
Breach of contract is a fairly common occurrence in the world of business. A breach occurs when someone violates the terms of an agreement. A breach can occur at any time after the creation of a contract. Either party can cause a breach through its actions or inactions. Some breaches are justified under the law and others are not. When breaches are small, the parties may be able to continue performance under their agreement. Breaches that are serious enough to disrupt the entire purpose of the contract may be considered material breaches, rendering the contract void.
Breaches occur for many reasons. We represent clients in all types of breach of contract cases, including:
- Failure to pay for or deliver a product or services
- Missed deadlines
- Failure to meet the terms of a secondary agreement, such as a lease, mortgage, or loan document
- Disputes over terms in the contract
- Disputes between partners or workers
- Work stoppages
When your company is affected by a breach, we will take steps to bring the other party into compliance. We will first attempt to get them to cure the breach through performance or compensation. Next, we can seek a resolution through negotiations, but we are prepared to pursue a remedy through litigation. We will seek the maximum amount of damages allowed under the law in order to compensate your business for its losses.
In every contract dispute, at least one company will find itself on the defense. We represent clients who have wrongfully been accused of breaching a contract. In many cases, actions that would normally constitute a breach are allowed because of something the other party did first. We also represent clients who have breached their contracts purposely in order to pursue alternatives, in what is known as “efficient breach." The law does not necessarily seek to punish those who breach contracts. Rather, the law’s aim is to make each party whole. This might mean restoring any money the company lost or potentially compensating them for the profits they expected to earn. We help clients in this situation develop defenses for their actions and skillfully defend their rights in court.
