Contract Disputes

Contract disputes typically arise where one of the parties fails to live up to their end of the bargain, or the parties disagree over the meaning and implementation of certain terms in the contract.  Either type of dispute can cause an individual or business to suffer financial harm.

Breach of Contract

In prosecuting a breach of contract case, our attorneys work with economic experts to determine the amount of financial loss (i.e., increased costs, lost profits) incurred by our client as a result of the other party’s breach.  When defending a client accused of breach, we look for any way to invalidate the contract or any ambiguous or vague clauses which may be unenforceable.

Ambiguous Language

Where the contract contains language that is subject to more than one interpretation, our attorneys apply critical legal analysis to interpret that language based on relevant contract principles and case law.  We explain to you how a court will likely interpret the contract and recommend the best course of action in light of your specific circumstances and objectives.

We understand that litigation can exacerbate the financial harm already caused by the dispute itself.  However, litigation is just one of several options available to resolve the matter.  Less expensive alternatives such as negotiation, arbitration and mediation are faster and just as effective.  Our attorneys are not only experienced trial lawyers, but also skilled arbitration and mediation lawyers. Our focus is to provide cost-effective solutions, minimize liability and negotiate favorable outcomes.
