Contract Disputes

Contract Dispute Lawyers

Contracts are at the heart of business, and at the center of real estate transactions. A well-written contract that both parties can abide by can be mutually beneficial, often creating long-term relationships that help everyone involved thrive. Unfortunately, if a dispute arises over a contract, it can lead to a battle. With the help of an experienced lawyer, that battle can be won.

At Fischer, Bessette, Muldowney & McArdle, LLP, our contract dispute attorneys are prepared to take immediate action. If you need to resolve a dispute with a party that has failed to fulfill its terms of a contract, or if you have been accused of breach of contract, we can help.

Reasons for Contract Disputes

There are many causes of contract disputes. While there are cases in which one party blatantly fails to live up to its side of the bargain, there are also many situations where unclear or ambiguous language is to blame. In these cases, the dispute comes down to interpretation. Our lawyers know how to read contracts, decipher unclear or inconsistent language, and advocate for your contractual rights. We will determine the cause of the contract dispute and move forward from there.

Can the Contract Be Preserved?

Our goal is to do what is best for our client. In some cases, that means simply forcing the other party to fulfill its end of the contract or to resolve allegations of breach of contract against our client. This may be accomplished through negotiation or trial, and we are skilled at both approaches.

In some cases, the contract may be at the center of a relationship between businesses that has lasted for many years. Perhaps what is best is to preserve the relationship. We will take great care to review this option and determine whether the contract can be preserved or whether the matter at hand should be resolved and a new contract should be created. Perhaps the relationship truly has run its course, and the dispute should be resolved to our client's satisfaction and the relationship severed. We make certain that no opportunities or considerations are overlooked before moving forward.
