Resolving Disputes Effectively So You Can Focus On Business

It is almost inevitable that a business will encounter a legal dispute. The disagreement may be over a contract, property or billing. Disputes can become embroiled and hostile and negatively affect the business. Careful planning and legally binding contracts can mitigate a good deal of conflict. When disputes do arise, the legal team at Kiefaber & Oliva LLP in Houston is ready to protect your interests.

Unexpected events can cause a party to not fulfill an obligation or responsibility. Unsatisfactory performance, unmet deadlines or faulty products can all hinder a business. Additionally, a breach of contract can cause a chain of events to happen that can negatively impact a small business. Mediation is oftentimes the most practical solution to small business disputes. However, if a fair resolution cannot be reached through negotiation, we are experienced litigators who are always prepared to represent your interests in court.

Handling Breaches Of Contract

Breaches of contract, whether material or immaterial, can often be remedied and settled out of court. However, should a breach require litigation, the lawyers at Kiefaber & Oliva LLP are prepared to aggressively and effectively represent your business.

Breaches of contract can incur damages including:

  • Compensatory damages
  • Punitive damages
  • Nominal damages
  • Liquidated damages
  • Restitution

Older contracts may be outdated and not apply to the current marketplace or business relationship. In this instance a qualified attorney can assist your business in contract rescission or reformation.

The Early Start Advantage

By procuring a relationship with a business attorney at the start of your business venture, you help protect yourself, your family and your business. However, should your business require counsel or representation at the onset or middle of a dispute, our business lawyers can work to make sure your rights and business are protected as much as legally possible.
