Interpreting Contracts for Potential Exposure or Whether a Claim Exists Against Someone Else
Every company’s business depends on contracts and resolving business disputes that might depend on a specific contractual term. When contracts are misread or misinterpreted, businesses often make uninformed and incorrect decisions that are dangerous to the livelihood of their business. In many cases the filing of a lawsuit will compel the other party to come to the table and settle the matter. Other times, the client simply needs a contract reviewed to identify potential exposure to liability or whether or not a claim exists. Our firm’s business litigation attorneys regularly represent businesses and individuals in breach of contract cases.
Unfortunately, commercial business contracts are often drafted via “cutting and pasting” from contractual terms found on the internet. When this happens, figuring out each party’s obligations and responsibilities under the contract can be a real mess. Our experienced business litigators can assist with interpreting the terms of a contract if commercial litigation is a possibility.
There are also often issues where one party no longer wants to perform under the contract or has failed to do so adequately. We can assist with those determinations on what to do next. We have also litigated many cases where a competitor is interfering with a contract that you have with another company/partners.
Our business litigation lawyers have taken many cases to trial in representing both plaintiff and defendant companies. We have settled many other cases. Each case requires its own analysis and we work with our clients to ensure the best outcome for them. If you have a business dispute (or want to avoid one), contact the firm for a free initial consultation on what to do next. We offer telephone and in-person consultations for all potential breach of contract cases from Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Chapel Hill, Apex, Clayton, Morrisville, Wake Forest, and the surrounding Triangle area. We are able to accept breach of contract cases under a number of fee structures, such as hourly, flat fee, and, in certain cases, contingency.
