Resolving Disagreements and Breach of Contract Business Issues
Contract disputes affect the productivity and profitability of your business. Resolving a business contract dispute in San Diego efficiently and cost-effectively leads to faster business growth and increased profits. What happens when parties to a business contract find themselves in the midst of a dispute? The first ingredient to a successful solution is the underlying contract itself. Business contracts should be carefully crafted to describe the specific responsibilities of each party, while anticipating potential areas of conflict and providing specific relief or method(s) to resolve any challenge that should arise.
Unfortunately, many business contracts are loosely constructed and may not address the type and scope of disagreement that exists between the parties. The experienced business and contract attorneys at the Watkins Firm are prepared to step in and help to resolve the dispute in the fastest and most efficient manner possible. Generally speaking there are four primary options for the resolution of a business contract dispute:
- Business Litigation
Negotiation usually provides the most timely and cost-effective resolution to a disagreement between contracted business partners. The key to effective negotiations is to maintain a productive and constructive working environment while discussing the core issues of the dispute. In many cases our lawyers are able to facilitate successful negotiations to effectively resolve the issue.
Breach of Contract Litigation
If another party on your contract either does not perform, or notifies you that they cannot or do not intend to fulfill their obligations you will need to consider breach of contract litigation. Breach of contract is a serious legal issue that creates additional liabilities and obligations for those who fail to fulfill their contractual obligations. In addition to exposure for the costs of achieving the “benefit of the bargain” anticipated in the original agreement, you should be able to recover additional “damages.” Damages represent the additional documentable costs and loss of opportunity generated by the breach of contract by another party. While you may be required to take action to “mitigate the damages,” we will help you to recover the additional costs you incur in order to reach the position you would have enjoyed if the original contract had been fulfilled.
