Common Disputes In Contract Litigation
I have handled countless contract disputes over the years regarding just about every part of a contract. Common allegations include:
- Breach of contract – Failing to deliver on a term of the agreement
- Failure to perform – One party fails to complete a material act required by the contract, such as delivery, payment or completion of a service.
- Breach of express or implied warranty – Violation of the assurances regarding the quality of an item or service exchanged under the contract
- Unjust enrichment – When one party performs their end of the contract, but the other party does not, the second party has been enriched in an unfair way.
- Default on contract terms and conditions – Defined by the contract as necessary actions one party must take, and failure to do so may jeopardize the contract
If you are wondering what type of contract dispute you are dealing with, contact me to discuss the matter. I will help you analyze the situation and create a legal strategy that accomplishes your goals to resolve the matter.
Resolving Your Dispute
Although you may not feel as though you have many options when you are in the midst of litigation, you do have choices regarding how to proceed. Negotiating a settlement may be the most cost-efficient method of resolving your conflict, but the decision to settle is always up to you. In some cases, arbitration or other alternative dispute resolution methods could be required by the terms of the contract. I have worked as a trial attorney my entire career and am always ready to take your case to court, when needed.
