Contracts are a standard part of business that arise on a daily basis. Our economy depends on contracts for the buying and selling of goods and services. Contracts define the business relationship and form the structure on which the relationship is based.
The majority of litigation matters involve at least one contract dispute. How the breach of contract is resolved can often profoundly affect a businesses’ bottom line. Kurtz Law has successfully represented businesses big, small, national, regional and local with breach of contract claims.
The best practice is to consult an attorney once a contract dispute arises or when you believe a dispute may arise. Breach of contract matters involve contract terms or definitions, ambiguities in contracts, parties’ duties and timing for action, among other matters.
There are many options available to resolve contract disputes without litigation. Kurtz Law offers the following:
