Cases We Handle
Contracts are the foundation of good business practices. At Grisham & Kendall, PLLC, we handle a range of issues related to contract litigation, including:
- Partner Disputes, Suing Partners — A dispute between two business partners is an extremely damaging occurrence. A breakdown of the trust between the pillars of a business is a distressing and destabilizing event. Contract litigation lawyers can help you resolve the dispute and, hopefully, save the relationship.
- Equipment Leases, Nonfunctioning Equipment and Breach of Contract — Contracts set expectations and outline the responsibilities of each party in a business relationship. When equipment is not functioning or the leases aren’t as stated in the contract, it threatens the productivity of the business. This type of dispute can be litigated with the help of attorneys.
- Purchase Contracts — Purchase contracts are binding, bilateral agreements between two parties to purchase or exchange real estate. With real estate essential to any business, the breakdown of a purchase contract threatens the function of the entire operation. This issue can be solved with contract litigation.
- Employment Contracts — An employment contract (an agreement between an employer and employee) is a vital part of any business. If the infraction against this contract is serious enough, litigation can be the way to get justice.
- Nonpayment for Goods and Services — Every business operates on revenue, and when payment is not given for goods and services, a breach of contract and a violation of trust occurs.
- Fraud Claims — Fraud is the purposeful deception intended for personal or financial gain and is the ultimate betrayal of trust between two business partners. If one partner is committing fraud, it is an obvious breach of contract and litigation will be necessary to resolve the dispute and sever necessary ties.
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty — A fiduciary duty is an obligation to act in the interest of another party. The law forbids the fiduciary (the person who has this duty) from acting against the wishes of the other party. If the fiduciary does act against the other party’s wishes, this violation can be punished through litigation.
- Unjust Enrichment — Unjust enrichment occurs when an individual is unfairly financially rewarded at the expense of others. An attorney can help you seek justice for this infraction through litigation.
Each of these issues can be resolved with the help of a skilled professional. An attorney will interpret the contract and the law and develop solutions to get your business back on its feet.
