Fairfield County Businesses Lawyer for Contract and Business Disputes

Business disputes are an often unavoidable part of running a business. However, with proper planning, business owners can implement legal protections designed to minimize the possibility of lawsuits and protect their business interests. A key part of this planning is drafting transaction-specific contracts designed to account for potential pitfalls. Anticipating these pitfalls, however, is not easy, and requires an in-depth knowledge of the legal rules and industry practices that only a skilled commercial and business law attorney can provide. All too often, business owners rely on "one-size-fits-all" contracts that fail to provide adequate safeguards.

At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we fight aggressively to protect the interests of our clients. Whether you are involved in a dispute over a contract or a deal "gone south," we provide our clients the experience and competence needed to resolve a dispute successfully.

Contract and Business Disputes

At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we understand the rules that govern contract disputes. Business contracts are intended to set the terms of a deal. Generally, the outcome of a contract dispute depends heavily on the terms of the contract. That is, a judge or arbitrator will examine the terms of the contract to determine the intent of the parties to the contract. If that intent is not clear from the contract terms, the judge or arbitrator will give the terms the meaning generally ascribed to them in the industry, and they may consider evidence outside of the contract terms.

At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we work with our clients to draft contracts that account for potential issues that may arise in the short and long term. We have extensive experience drafting contracts that anticipate common sources of contractual disputes, as well as issues that are specific to a particular deal, client, or industry.

If there is a contract dispute, we try to resolve it without having to go to trial. Not every issue needs to be resolved in the courtroom. At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we rely on our experience negotiating and arbitrating issues out of court. Also known as alternative dispute resolution (ADR), this process allows our clients to resolve contract and business disputes without incurring the delays and expenses often associated with trials.

However, if an "out-of-court" resolution is not possible, we have a proven record of successfully representing our clients in the courtroom. We mount an aggressive trial strategy that leverages every procedural and substantive legal strategy, from discovery to post-trial motions, for the benefit of our clients.
