Contract Disputes

Under business law, a contract creates certain obligations that must be fulfilled by the parties that entered into the agreement. Failure to do so is known as a “breach” of contract.

Depending on the specifics of the contract, a breach can occur when:

Contract disputes often occur between companies, but can also occur between a business and a hired worker, such as a contractor. These cases are most effectively handled outside of court, with both parties sitting down with a mediator to negotiate an agreement. However, they may be heard in court if necessary.

When a dispute over a contract arises, the most effective methods used toward resolution are negotiations between the parties to the contract, and lawsuits. The parties can agree to have a mediator review a contract dispute, or may agree to binding arbitration of a contract dispute. Arbitration, however, is a waiver of a trial by judge or jury, which is a Consitutional right that the attorneys at Burns, Cunningham & Mackey, P.C. do not recommend waiving. Trial is typically an adjudication of the merits of the dispute, and results in a verdict that is binding and enforceable on the parties to the lawsuit.
