Breach of Contract Attorney in Jacksonville
A breach of contract occurs when one party within an agreement fails to perform a material term of the contract without a legitimate reason. The Law Office of Shands M. Wulbern, P.A., provides representation for lawsuits involving breach of contract and related claims. Even though the parties within a commercial transaction may have binding agreements, differences in interpretation or the outright refusal of one party to honor the terms of the agreement can arise. Breach of contract litigation often requires aggressive representation to enforce the true terms of the agreement.
Understanding Breach of Contract Claims
The pre-requisite to any breach of contract claim is a valid and binding contract with both parties expressing their intent to enter into an agreement. When a valid contractual agreement exists and a dispute arises over a potential breach of the agreement, all aspects of the agreement and interpretation should be carefully considered prior to litigation. Aspects of performance of the contract and defenses for non-performance should also be scrutinized to ensure that a proper litigation strategy is undertaken. Issues arising during the early stages of litigation can be critical to determining the ultimate outcome of a contractual dispute.
Whether initiating or defending a breach of contract claim, it is necessary to determine the overall objective for resolving the dispute. In some cases, full litigation may be necessary to protect financial interests and to ensure that financial assets are either recovered or not completely lost. Effective alternative dispute resolution strategies to expeditiously resolve disputes may be needed. An attorney can discuss all options to avoid unnecessary costs while achieving a desired outcome.
