In San Diego, and throughout California if a business fails to pay for an order the result could actually be a breach of contract lawsuit. The quality of the underlying document should provide protection from substantial exposure. For example, a substantial down payment or “milestone” payments can help to prevent a total loss.
The Watkins Firm approaches these disputes with a unique strategy. The ultimate goal for most of our business clients is to resolve any underlying issues and simply work to negotiate a solution. This is the fastest and least expensive solution to a breach of contract. When a business fails to pay for an order the failure to pay is often disguised by complaints on the part of the non-paying party. “There’s something wrong with the product,” or “The services weren’t performed in a timely manner.” The experienced business to business dispute lawyers at the Watkins Firm will help you to pierce these flimsy defenses and get to the core of the issue: the failure to pay.
Why should you have to pay collectors 30% or more and risk ruining a profitable business relationship? Why should you have to wait months or years for the money, especially if you do a lot of business with this customer or vendor? If you have a business customer who has not paid for contracted goods or services we invite you to contact the Watkins Firm or call us at 858-535-1511 for a free and substantive consultation. We will discuss your goals for the situation and work to accomplish them in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible. Our presence communicates the seriousness of the situation, and often results in a more prompt response and payment. We work to preserve a constructive working relationship with the customer. In many cases our clients want to leave the door open to doing business again, and simply require our help to resolve the present issue(s).
