Solutions And Strength In Contract Litigation
We have litigated major cases in which enforcing the contract is crucial to continued operation of the company. We have likewise defended against breach of contract lawsuits that potentially exposed our clients to large damage awards. Burns & Hansen, P.A., can handle complex litigation involving security interests, warranties, intellectual property rights, allegations of fraud and other complicating factors.
We realize that most contract disputes are not a make-or-break proposition. The amount of money in dispute may be too large to simply write off or pay up but not worth a protracted legal fight. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who can work with the other party or its counsel to find acceptable middle ground. We can also advise clients entering mediation or arbitration such as for binding arbitration clauses in the contract itself.
When out-of-court avenues are exhausted, we are prepared to go to trial if we determine you are on solid legal ground and if it makes sense for the bottom line of your company. We can pursue damages or specific performance (compelling the other party to live up to the contract). We also handle civil appeals of an adverse judgment or verdict if there were errors of law at trial.
