The contract is the foundation of the business deal. Contracts also provide perhaps the largest source of business litigation.
As a national law firm, the attorneys of Culhane Meadows have represented numerous clients in contract disputes. Our litigation team members have successfully brought suit to enforce contracts and successfully defended clients against breach of contract lawsuits. Our experience includes trials in both the federal and state courts as well as successful arbitrations and mediations in many contractual disputes.
Although our litigation team is tenacious in pursuit of our clients’ interests during litigation, we are equally as focused on finding a satisfactory way to resolve the contractual dispute in an efficient and cost effective manner.
While we have the experience and skill to fight our clients’ battles in the court room, we view litigation within the larger framework of our clients’ business and/or personal objectives. Not every dispute requires the commitment of executive time or the expense and disruption of otherwise profitable commercial relationships that frequently ensue when formal litigation is pursued. For that reason, we have employed a variety of alternative dispute resolution techniques to seek resolution at the earliest possible opportunity.
A growing part of our practice involves work to minimize our clients’ risks and exposure of doing business in today’s litigious world. While we are prepared to aggressively litigate to protect our clients’ interests, avoidance of litigation remains one of our primary goals. Our attorneys work with our clients to define, assess and minimize litigation risks and to develop programs to help them comply with specific contractual requirements and with the laws and regulations that affect their business.
