Contract disputes are one of the costs of doing business and any business should be prepared. Investing in an experienced business lawyer or law firm like Sasscer, Clagett & Bucher can give you the protection you need to resolve a legal dispute with minimal damage.

Let’s take a look at several types of contract disputes that frequently occur:

  • Partnership Disputes: These contract disputes occur when partners disagree as to what is in the best nature of their business. Arguments related to compensation or leadership roles can quickly lead to a partnership dispute.
  • Business to Business Disagreements: If one business perceives another business’ actions as being unfair or deceptive, business to business litigation can arise.
  • Breach of Contract: When contracts are incomplete or unclear, breach of contract disputes often arise. Each party interprets the language differently, resulting in one party failing to honor their end of the agreement.
  • General Liability: Any injuries that occur on a business property have the potential to result in a legal dispute. If you own property with any foot traffic – like a restaurant, for example – there’s a chance someone will slip and fall and injure themselves. If this happens, you can be held accountable.
  • Non-Compete Agreements: Many businesses ask their employees to sign non-compete agreements, which bind the employee not to engage in similar business practices for a set period of time in a specific location. Sometimes these agreements are overly broad and unenforceable, which is why they need to be drafted by experienced business lawyers.

The experienced business lawyers at Sasscer, Clagett & Bucher advocate for both public and private companies and public corporations in complex business litigation, as well as dispute resolution proceedings, across a broad range of industries.
