Contract disputes

Contracts are often at the heart of business disputes, where millions of dollars can be decided on the turn of a single word or the placement of a comma. Our attorneys have seen them all:  deals made on a hand shake or the back of a cocktail napkin, and deals that fill multiple notebooks. Whether it’s an individual, a small business or a Fortune 500 company, our attorneys can tackle contract disputes with strategic awareness, creative thinking, and an understanding beyond simply reading words on a page.

That is why clients come to us when money is on the line or their business or livelihood is at risk. Our contract dispute cases have involved:

  • Lending contracts
  • Buy/sell agreements
  • Business contracts
  • Construction
  • Distribution agreements
  • Employment agreements
  • Insurance
  • Personal services contracts
  • Professional services agreements
  • Property contracts
  • Sales agreements
  • Uniform Commercial Code
