Contract Disputes

Contract disputes are a major part of our Business Litigation practice. Contracts can be simple, one page letter agreements, or voluminous, long-form agreements with multiple exhibits and appendices. At its core, a contract dispute concerns one party to a contract claiming that another party to the contract is not honoring its terms.

Our Commercial Litigators focus on contract disputes that involve large sums of money, important business interests and complex legal issues. We have handled contract disputes in many industries (regarding a wide range of subject matters) including, but not limited to, health care, real estate, textile, sports and entertainment, automotive and e-commerce.

One type of contract dispute that arises frequently concerns multiple business owners who cannot agree on how to run their business. These types of ownership disputes (or “business divorces”) are often referred to as shareholder disputes or partnership litigation. They typically involve a written agreement (i.e., a “contract”) such as an Operating Agreement, Limited Partnership Agreement or Shareholders’ Agreement concerning how the affairs of the business are supposed to be conducted, and one owner’s claim that another owner is in breach of the agreement.

We have successfully litigated (and arbitrated) many business ownership fights, and have the resources, experience and track record to assist you with your contract dispute.
