My business partner breached our contract. What steps should I take?

If you have been wronged under a contractual agreement, it is advisable to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. A breach of contract can cause immediate and imminent harm to a business. To minimize the risk of significant loss, you should act promptly. Quick action may protect information and preserve resources. During your first meeting with an attorney, gather copies of any applicable correspondence as well as any contract related to the dispute.

Do I need a business attorney or can I settle the disputer on my own?

There are certainly situations in which it is possible to settle a business dispute without help from an attorney. However, when negotiating on your own is ineffective – or when a dispute suddenly escalates it may be time to get outside legal help. Our firm offers a free consultation to discuss the specifics of your case. During this consultation, we will explain how we can help in your particular situation.

Can a business dispute be handled outside of court?

ach case is different, and many factors can influence whether this is possible. Many business disputes are settled outside of the courtroom. However, it is important that your case is prepared for trial – even if it never ends up in court. We never promote unnecessary business litigation. But we also do not encourage our clients to accept a proposed solution that is unsatisfactory to them. In each case we handle, we learn about our clients’ goals and help them identify the most effective way of meeting them.
