lake county contract disputes lawyerWhen two (or more) parties enter into a contractual agreement, it is expected that they will fulfill the terms and conditions of the agreement. In many instances, however, this does not happen. Sometimes, the wording of a contract is vague and the parties have separate interpretations of its meaning.

Potential Contract Dispute Resolution Strategies

There are many ways to resolve a dispute over a breach of contract. Aside from traditional litigation, one of the following approaches may be appropriate:

  • Negotiation
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration (Binding or Non-Binding)

Legal remedies for a contract dispute may include monetary damages, specific performance, contract rescission, and contract reformation. If you have reason to believe another party is about to break the terms and conditions of a contract, preemptive action may be necessary. For example, an injunction can be sought to prevent another party from taking an action that could damage your entity.
