The Courts of San Diego are quite backlogged, and business litigation cases can take a year or more to get to court. What is the key to managing a San Diego business contract dispute and how can you resolve it quickly and cost-effectively? The experienced business litigation attorneys at the Watkins Firm take a different approach to business contract disputes: leveraged negotiation. The vast majority of these cases can be resolved quickly and efficiently by our attorneys through a leveraged negotiation approach that preserves existing relationships while resolving underlying business contract disputes.
The source of leverage is the “damages” associated with the breach of contract or potential breach of a business contract. Business litigation cases cannot force one party to take an action or to actually fulfill a contract. The financial impact of the failed agreement is measured in terms of the damages suffered by the victim of a breach of contract. The extent of the damages often surprises those defending a breach of contract and this provides the leverage we need to get them to the negotiating table and craft a resolution that meets our client’s goals.
There are times when the parties have principled disagreement regarding some of the issues associated with a business contract dispute and mediation is a cost-efficient and timely alternative to litigation. Mediation is not binding, and in some cases the mediator is unable to completely resolve the issue at hand. In those cases many contracts call for arbitration. The experienced business dispute attorneys at the Watkins Firm represent our clients in every aspect of managing a business contract dispute in San Diego providing our clients with a single-source legal team with proven experience and expertise.
