In essence, contracts are promises, and a well-drafted contract can protect your interests, create mutually beneficial business relationships, and prevent expensive and time-consuming disputes. But sometimes, a party to a contract breaks its promise by failing to fulfill its duties and obligations.
This is known as a breach of contract, and when it happens, the party that suffers as a result of the breach may be entitled to seek damages. The bigger the contract, the higher the stakes, particularly when incomes, investments, and profits are at risk.
At Sommers Schwartz, we know that a breach of contract claim cannot be effectively prosecuted or defended if the attorney does not understand the client’s business – your business. We take the time to get to know you, the surrounding facts, and the strategy necessary to achieve the best possible outcome.
