Attorney Serving Small Businesses in Breach of Contract Cases

As a small business owner, every contract you enter into could represent an opportunity to fulfill your business's needs, expand your client base, or better protect your interests. However, if you are not careful, a contract could also open you up to legal action from the other party. Breach of contract disputes can lead to expensive litigation in court, and an unfavorable outcome can be even more costly to you and your business.

Whether you are the plaintiff or defendant in a breach of contract case, you need an attorney who can help you stand up for your interests and reach an appropriate resolution as efficiently as possible. At the Law Office of David Schechet, our 35 years of legal experience have prepared us to provide our clients with strong, confident legal representation, including in court if necessary. We will do everything in our power to help you protect your business while we work to resolve your case.

California Business Lawyer for Contract Drafting, Review, and Negotiation

One of the best ways to prevent contract disputes, or to protect yourself in the event that a dispute does arise, is to be diligent in the drafting and negotiation of your contracts in the first place. Whether you are creating a one-time agreement or a standard contract for regular use in the course of your business, we can help you draft contract terms that protect you from excessive liability or unforeseen circumstances that may prevent you from fulfilling your obligations. We can also help you include terms stipulating the resolution methods to be used in case of a dispute.

As you prepare to enter a contract agreement with another party, we can help you conduct due diligence to determine whether they are reliable and trustworthy. We can also help you negotiate for fair terms that protect your interests, including by providing you with greater flexibility or methods of ensuring that you receive fair compensation for the products or services you provide.

Representation for Different Types of Contract Disputes

Small business owners may find themselves involved in a variety of contract disputes. We provide legal representation for disputes regarding:

  • Service and sales contracts - We serve business owners in disputes over contracts for the products and services their business provides, as well as disputes with vendors and contractors who provide supplies or services for the business.
  • Commercial lease agreements - Many small businesses rent office, retail, production, or warehouse space from commercial real estate property owners, which requires that they enter lease agreements. We help business owners negotiate fair lease terms and resolve disputes with lessors.
  • Partnership agreements - When starting a business with someone else, it is important to establish the parameters for your partnership, including ownership shares, decision-making authority, and liability. We help partners resolve disputes that arise from an alleged violation of the partnership agreement.

If you are initiating a claim for breach of contract, we can help you determine the appropriate remedies to pursue, whether that means financial compensation for your losses or a court order for specific performance of the terms of the contract. We can also help you gather evidence of the other party's breach to support your claim. If, on the other hand, you are the defendant in a breach of contract case, we can help you prepare evidence to defend yourself from the other party's allegations. We also offer business dispute mediation services, which may help you avoid civil litigation altogether.
