Contract Drafting and Disputes

Overview

No one expects that contracts made in good faith and reasonableness will one day go bad. As part of a business, you form alliances and create contracts as a natural part of business. Sometimes circumstances change and a party is unable to fulfill their promise under their agreement, resulting in a dispute. It is usually unforeseeable that the party is not able to follow through. Having a written contract drafted that outlines the consequences and remedies for a breach of contract is always a good business practice. A dispute can still arise, however, when the aggrieved party seeks to have the agreement enforced or to be compensated for the contract being breached.

Contract Disputes

Being sued for not paying a debt? Did someone not finish a service? Did a customer or client take off without paying? Often individuals come to us when they are being sued for not paying a debt to a company or when they need to sue a company or individual for nonpayment. When a contract is made between parties they usually make it in good faith expecting to make payment or to perform the duties agreed upon. However, unexpected circumstances can make it impossible to follow through. Or sometimes there is the unfortunate circumstance of someone willingly and intentionally not following through on an agreement. As an aggrieved party in this situation you deserve justice. Sometimes this is obtained through settlement and other times through going to court. Ms. Davis can help you decide the best strategy whether you are the complaining party or the one accused of a breach of contract. When life is busy, it helps to have an attorney who can navigate through the legal system and knows what to expect, whether it’s a large or small claim.

Resolution of Your Contract Dispute
