We Help You Resolve Contract Disputes in the Best Possible Manner

When pursuing resolutions to a contract dispute, you may have several options, including:

  • Negotiation: Attempting to reach a negotiated settlement for compensation or an altered agreement. Negotiation may help both parties avoid the time and cost of a trial, and is often the best method of settling a disagreement between parties who may wish to continue to do business in the future.
  • Mediation: One of the most cost effective and swift methods of resolving a contract dispute, mediation involves an independent mediator who makes a decision on the dispute after hearing testimony from both parties involved. In some cases, the mediator’s ruling is final, while in others the ruling can be used during negotiations between the disputing parties.
  • Arbitration:  Another cost effective and swift method of resolving a contract dispute, arbitration involves one or more  independent arbitrators who make a final and binding decision on the dispute after hearing testimony from all parties involved. This provides a quicker and in most cases more cost effective method for resolving a commercial dispute.
  • Litigation: If mediation or negotiation offers no resolution to the dispute, the litigation process may be the final answer. Our staff is highly experienced in the court room, and will prepare the strongest possible case to pursue a judgment in your favor.
