If you are in business, then contracts are a big part of your day-to-day operations. You rely on the professionals with whom you have contracted to uphold their legal obligations and their contractual terms, but that does not always happen. Regardless of whether your conflict involves the delivery of supplies, the provision of services, your relationships with your employees or partners, or some other business matter, it is essential that you have skilled and experienced Philadelphia contract attorneys representing you and your best interests. The lawyers at Bochetto & Lentz have been helping businesses manage their legal challenges for may years, and we can help you as well.
The best way to prepare for a legal challenge is to ensure that conflict doesn’t come up in the first place, and that is accomplished by drafting all contracts with great care. No matter what type of contract you need, having a competent and knowledgeable attorney help you prepare them often eliminates the need for litigation. A well-written contract will anticipate the problems and conflicts that may arise, and will include terms that address the needs of each party as well as all possibilities and variables, and provide answers to problems. Still, there are some situations that are no foreseeable and sometimes entities fail to hold up to their end of an agreement. The Philadelphia contract attorneys at Bochetto & Lentz can provide you with representation designed to protect your interests.
Breach of contract can constitute a wide range of actions or inactions. Though most people think of a breach as an outright refusal or failure to perform the terms of a contract, in most cases the problems are less clear cut, and have to do with disputes about minor material breaches. When you have not received the full value or delivery of what has been promised by a contract, there are a few different remedies that we can pursue on your behalf. These include:
- Compensatory damages: These represent the actual damages sustained as a result of the breach of contract, and are intended to make good on what was not provided or fulfilled.
- Liquidated damages: Monetary compensation awarded by a court judgment, but often established as a predetermined sum that must be paid for failure to perform.
- Rescission: Discharge of both parties from the obligations of the contract.
- Specific performance: An order that compels the breaching party to execute the contract as agreed to in the contract.
You engage in your contracts for a reason, and when you do not get what you expect or need, it is essential that you have a competent attorney working as your advocate.
