CONTRACT ACTIONS:– Simply put, when a party to an agreement fails to honor the terms of the agreement without a legal excuse, we can help. There are many issues to consider when evaluating the value of filing a lawsuit for breach of contract. We advise our clients to cut their losses and not pursue litigation about as often as we advise them to pursue legal remedies for breach of contract. However, many times litigation is necessary to redress the harms that result from a breach of the agreement. If litigation is necessary, we set viable goals, create a realistic budget to obtain those goals and always litigate breach of contract cases with an eye towards expedient resolution.
We also routinely defend individuals and businesses on breach of contract claims. Many of these claims arise in the context of:
- Default on a Promissory Note
- Default on a Security Agreement
- Landlord/Tenant Disputes
- Service Agreement Disputes
- Employment Agreement Disputes
- Real Estate Agreement Disputes
Business Disputes:Going into business with someone is much like a marriage. Many legal obligations are created when you enter a business relationship with another. Disputes can often arise between owners of a business. Those disputes often arise over denial of access to company books or records, withholding or refusing to declare a dividend, termination of an owner’s employment with the company, misapplication of company funds, diversion of company opportunities, manipulation of stock values.
Whether we are helping our client negotiate a “business divorce” or sue for damages caused by the wrongful conduct of another our philosophy towards business disputes remains the same; seek an expedient resolution and minimize the damage to the value of the business. If you feel that you are being taken advantage of by those in control of your business or conversely, if you manage a business and are being accused of wrongful activity, we can help.
