Unfortunately, despite everyone’s best intentions disputes between parties to a contract can develop. These disputes can arise under many circumstances;. whether it is a customer who does not want to pay for the products or services that a business delivered or, conversely, a customer who contracted for goods or services and the business did not meet its obligations. As an example, a home improvement contractor was hired to perform renovations to a kitchen but did not complete the job or did so in an unacceptable manner.
Disputes can also arise between business partners, employees or former employees. Business partners could decide they no longer wish to stay in business together but cannot agree on how to separate. Employees may have created a hostile work environment for each other and the employer is now the subject of a lawsuit. A former employee may have left the company and begun working for a competitor taking with them your customers lists and other propriety information.
Another area where disputes between parties can occur is the buying and selling of homes. For example the buyer or the seller may attempt to cancel the contract in a way which is not permitted by the contract or the Buyers may discover something about the property, after the closing that they believe was hidden or not disclosed by the seller. Several days after the closing, the basement floods and the buyers lose many of their possession. At no time prior to closing was flooding in the basement ever disclosed and the Buyers want to recover the damages against the Seller for their fraud.
All of these examples can usually be resolved without having to resort to filing a lawsuit. Maybe mediation is an appropriate option so that the business relationship can be salvaged, or maybe, the emotions of the parties are too high in the case and the attorneys may be able to negotiate a solution that meets everybody’s needs. If all else fails, then I have the experience to pursue or defend a lawsuit in a way that is efficient and gets the job done.
