When Does Breach of Contract Litigation Become Necessary?
Business contracts and commercial agreements are the foundation of all functioning companies and business entities. However, it is inevitable that at some point there will be a breach of contract due to bad faith or extenuating circumstances. Therefore, businesses should seek to use well written contracts to provide for remedies involving breach. Common issues that arise in commercial litigation include:
Interpretation issues of contract provisions
Bad faith breach
Unwillingness or inability to cure
Need for injunctive relief or restraining order
Unjust harm and loss
Intellectual property infringement
Our business litigation attorneys negotiate contracts and commercial agreements as well as handle all aspects of breach of contract litigation.
