Commercial Litigation: Contract Disputes

Mar 31, 2020 | Commercial Litigation

Business contracts create specific obligations that must be fulfilled by the parties who entered into the agreement. When one party fails to fulfill its contractual obligation, it is known as a “breach” of contract. You could be left facing a heavy financial burden or placed at a significant strategic disadvantage professionally if you are involved with a breached contract. Fortunately, a signed contract gives you the means to enforce your position in just these kinds of situations.

You kept your word; the Houston contract dispute attorneys at Williams Hart & Boundas can work to make sure the other party follows through on their word as well.
Types of Contract Disputes
Most contractual disputes in Houston revolve around a failure to deliver a product or service, disagreements when a product or service should be delivered, the quality of the product or service delivered, or disagreements involving a misunderstanding of the original terms of the contract. The Houston business attorneys at Williams Hart & Boundas have the experience and resources to navigate such discrepancies in matters including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Supply contracts
  • Purchase and sales agreements
  • Business to business contracts and agreements
  • Lease disputes
  • Partnership or shareholder disputes
  • Employment contracts
  • Breach of confidentiality or non-competition agreements

What happens after a contract is breached?
When a breach of contract occurs, one or both parties may request to have the contract enforced on its terms, or may try to recover any financial losses caused by the alleged breach. If the contract dispute cannot be settled informally, the most common next step is a lawsuit. 

Not all contractual disputes in Houston will require litigation. Mediation can be a beneficial tool to resolve a dispute—saving time, money, and, ideally, the professional relationship between the two parties involved. Since every case is different, however, our team can help you determine the best course of action to quickly and efficiently resolve the dispute at hand.
