Selecting an Attorney to Handle a Breach of Contract Dispute

When a breach of contract dispute arises, the issues involved should be concluded quickly and cost-effectively.

A firm handshake and a person’s word should be sufficiently trustworthy in most matters of business. Often though, it’s naïve to proceed directly into commerce in such a fashion. Basic agreements can evolve into complex documents, far more complex and voluminous than perhaps originally intended. Regardless of the care taken in entering into a business arrangement, a breach of contract dispute can occur. When a breach of contract dispute arises, most individuals and businesses want the issues resolved quickly and inexpensively. An attorney may need to be consulted – but not just any business attorney. In selecting a law firm, the client should place a premium on quality experience. The business law firm that is consulted should have successfully handled at least dozens, and ideally, hundreds of breach of contract disputes, and be able to keep your goals and interests sufficiently in the forefront. The firm you select should not only have a reputation for working hard – but also working smart.

Having an innovative attorney who has successfully handled contract disputes in a wide range of areas such as employment contracts, drilling contracts, distributorship agreements, manufacturing and production agreements, development agreements, noncompete agreements, licensing contracts, stock option agreements, intellectual property agreements, construction and architecture contracts, promissory notes, or real estate contracts, just to name a few, can provide you with peace of mind knowing that your attorney has a broad knowledge base. A broad knowledge base means little, however, unless the attorney you select is one who will strive to provide you with the best possible level of personal service while making every effort to deliver results in a timely and cost-effective manner. Whether you are a business or an individual, plaintiff or defendant, top-notch unwavering representation is crucial to success.

Many times a breach of contract claim can be resolved outside of a courtroom or before a final arbitration hearing, either by negotiation or mediation. However, you are usually only able to negotiate the best results if you hire an attorney who will do a skillful job of preparing your claims for trial or final arbitration hearing.

If the matter is substantial, an attorney should always be consulted. If you are unsure what should or can be done about a possible breach of contract or if you have been accused of breaching a contract, consult an attorney. Your peace of mind may rest on whether you do.
