If your company is defending allegations of a breach of contract we invite you to contact the experienced business litigation attorneys at the Watkins Firm. The defense of breach of contract allegations is serious business, and the contingent liabilities your company faces are an open checkbook at this point. The victim of the breach will allege a series of damages, and without a vigorous defense your company can be held liable. Our attorneys have decades of expertise in these matters, and understand that the key to your defense is a mastery of the details in the dispute and the nature and sum of the associated damages.
The majority of these cases are resolved through leveraged negotiations. The earlier in the process the Watkins Firm lawyers become involved, the sooner we are able to develop a work-around and the broader the range of options available to do so. Taking immediate action to notify the other party and propose solutions can reduce your exposure to damages. It also puts the other party in the position of having to take immediate, prudent and reasonable action to mitigate their losses. The failure to do so is a valid defense, and allows our attorneys to shield you from many of the damages the plaintiff will allege.
There are multiple defenses in a breach of contract case. We research the contract and all communications that can be documented which preceded the agreement. If there is any element of fraud or misrepresented conditions on the part of the plaintiff we have a solid defense. Mistakes in the contract itself can provide all of the defense we require to protect your position, and if the plaintiff downloaded and modified the contract (which many do) it may simply not be a legal or defensible document under California law.
Finally, we understand the importance of protecting valuable business relationships when defending allegations of a breach of contract and we do everything possible to preserve them. If you have been accused or are concerned about a potential breach of contract we invite you to contact us for a free consultation at 858-535-1511.
