Understanding Commercial Litigation & Breach of Contract

Harding Law Firm - Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Being a business owner comes with a set of responsibilities that one rarely anticipates. It’s not easy to own and run a business, but luckily, if a legal dispute arises, a commercial litigation attorney can help you navigate through the process.

However, a dispute regarding your business will divert your attention from your customers and usually results in a disruption of your business income. Disputes can also negatively affect your business reputation and image in the community. Taking care of the issue(s) with an attorney can help you get back on track to running your business and keeping your attention where it needs to be.

Common Reasons People Use an Attorney for Business Disputes:

• Breach of Contract

• Tortious Interference

• Corporate Disputes

Breach of contract is very common. When faced with making a decision in a breach of contract dispute, the trier of fact must consider the rule that encompassed within the implied obligation of each promisor to exercise good faith are any promises which a reasonable person in the position of the promisee would be justified in understanding were included in the contract. This rule of law embraces a pledge that "neither party shall do anything which will have the effect of destroying or injuring the right of the other party to receive the fruits of the contract."

When business disputes arise, you need a New York commercial litigation attorney to help you resolve the matter through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution or litigating the matter in court.
