BUSINESS LITIGATION & CONTRACT DISPUTES
COMPELLING CONTRACT LAW CASE STRATEGIES
Business litigation usually arises from a contract dispute. A valid and enforceable contract may be written, verbal or implied.
Contract cases are subject to statutes of limitation which limit the amount of time between the date the contract is breached and the date by which a lawsuit must be filed. In contract cases, these deadlines vary depending upon the type of contract involved, for instance:
Two Years: For Breach of a Verbal or Implied Contract or Agreement Four Years: For a Breach of a Written Contract, For Breach of Warranty and For Book Accounts and Sales of Goods Three Years: For a Claim of Fraud
Many contracts contain an “attorney’s fees” clause which entitles the prevailing party to recover their reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
Other types of business litigation include the following:
- Interference with an Existing Contract or Prospective Economic Advantage
- Collections Cases: Creditor vs. Debtor
- Unfair Business Practices
Our firm handles business litigation on an hourly fee basis plus costs incurred. An advance fee retainer is required before representation begins. When an advance fee retainer is used up, it must be replenished to the original amount. Our current hourly rate is $300 per hour.
