Do You Need an Attorney for Your Contract Dispute?
It might be tempting to try to resolve a contract dispute on your own by discussing things directly with the party that has violated your contract. For the most part, this is not a good idea. As an interested party in the contract, you are essentially too close to the issue to be able to see it as a whole. It is better to let a contract dispute lawyer like those at DiPietro Law Group, PLLC step in and act on your behalf.
Failing to correctly handle a contract dispute runs the risk of:
- Costing your company valuable time and resources
- Cutting your bottom line and profits
- Damaging your professional reputation
- Forcing the case into litigation
It will be our goal as your legal representatives to end your contract dispute amicably and in a way that protects your company’s best interests. Many matters can be concluded in a settlement or negotiation, which speeds up the process, saves costs, and keeps the court out of the decision-making process. Although, if the matter does require eventual business litigation, you will feel more confident in knowing you already have an attorney in your corner.
Does a Contract Dispute Only Involve the Contract?
The most important part of a contract dispute is the contract that has been breached. However, this is not the only piece of documentation that might be relevant to the contract dispute. There may be a number of other discussions and correspondences that led up to the contract’s creation or violation. Each could be pertinent to your case and the solution we reach.
Try to collect copies of any context that could be relevant to the contract dispute, such as:
- Text messages
- Internal system messages
- Conference call logs
The more information our law firm has when working on your contract dispute case, the better. You never know what sort of information in an email between parties will become the turning point for a dispute case.
Using Our Legal Experience to Avoid Litigation
The end result of some contract dispute cases is litigation, which tends to end in damages being paid by one party to the other. While it might be tempting to try to secure damages from the party that caused the contract dispute, it can be more beneficial to keep your professional relationship with that party intact. As a general business law rule, litigation should be the last resort when both parties cannot cooperate or compromise.
Our Fairfax contract dispute lawyers enter each case with this principle in mind. If the matter can be negotiated and settled out of court, it is generally beneficial for all involved. On the other hand, if your company’s profits and reputation are at stake due to a contract dispute and a court’s decision becomes needed to protect them, then we will be ready to assist in that regard as well.
