What are the best strategies for resolving a breach of contract dispute in San Diego? The Watkins Firm deploys a unique approach which is designed to resolve a breach of contract dispute quickly and cost-efficiently. The fastest, least expensive and most effective strategy for resolving a breach of contract dispute is leveraged negotiation. You cannot force a party to complete a transaction in a business civil suit so the strategy usually focuses on developing a work around solution to allow the parties to continue or to seek financial damages to compensate for the loss of the “benefit of the bargain” anticipated in the transaction.
The party who is the victim of a contract breach has a legal responsibility to take prudent and reasonable action to mitigate the damages. Damages are the key to any business dispute. The attorneys at the Watkins Firm seek to establish a thorough understanding of the potential financial damages and to use this leverage to gain the attention of the opposing party. We invite productive negotiations to establish common ground, identify options and negotiate a path forward. We seek appropriate compensation for the interruption of the contract in question while allowing the parties to work through the dispute and complete the transaction or relationship.
When negotiation is unable to resolve part or all of the dispute, mediation and arbitration provide alternative legal venues for dispute resolution. Mediation is usually less expensive and the parties retain the greatest degree of influence over the ultimate outcomes achieved. Mediation is confidential and all proceedings, documents and discussions remain shielded from the public record.
Arbitration is a much more structured legal strategy. Like mediation, the parties select a neutral third party to serve as an arbiter. The arbiter will usually request legal briefs from both parties, and has the authority to gather evidence and hear testimony. Arbitration is usually completed in a matter of days and the arbiter ultimately releases their finding which brings the dispute to an end.
