Contract Disputes Lawyer in Fairfield County CT
If your problem involves a business or personal agreement, it falls under the category of Contract Disputes. Agreements can be written, oral, and sometimes implied. There are often disputes about whether an agreement was ever made; what that agreement says; what it means; what it obligates people to do; whether the parties are complying with their obligations; and what remedies are available for a breach.
Contract Disputes can involve:
- Business purchases, sales, formation or liquidation
- Partnership and shareholder agreements,
- Employment and severance agreements
- Non-compete agreements
- Real estate purchases, sales or development
- Home improvement agreements
- Money lending or borrowing
- Goods or equipment sales
- Non-performance by lawyers, accountants or other professionals
- Insurance coverage disputes
Our attorneys see contract disputes as business problems to be solved, whether the agreement involves your business or personal affairs. Every contract dispute has an economic side to be addressed, but many have an emotional component as well. We will help you identify potential resolutions; evaluate whether they are feasible and how much time, effort and money each might take to obtain; and then work toward achieving the resolution that you choose as the most desirable. This process continues, and gets refined, throughout the representation. Sometimes resolving the dispute requires an aggressive fight; but other times the best resolution is the one that delivers a significant amount of what you want in the quickest and cheapest way. Either way, you will decide, with our assistance.
Our approach is to use all the tools at our disposal to resolve a contract dispute. While we are perfectly willing and able to fight hard in court, we recognize that this is often the most expensive and time-consuming option. It is not right for every client and every dispute. That is why we will explore resolutions through negotiation, mediation and arbitration whenever feasible.
If your goal is to resolve a contract dispute without disrupting your business or personal life, our approach will make sense for you.
