CAPABLE CALIFORNIA BUSINESS LITIGATION ATTORNEY RESOLVES COMPLEX DISPUTES

ESTABLISHED LAW FIRM REPRESENTS COMPANIES IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA

If you engage in commerce, sooner or later you are almost certain to encounter a dispute with a client or contractor that you’ll need outside help to resolve. If your company was wronged by a breach of contract or if claims of unfair practices have been made against your business, contacting an experienced business litigation firm is essential. At the Law Office of Bryson Woulfe, I represent business owners and corporate boards in the San Diego area and across California in trials in California and federal courts. As a strong negotiator, I will seek to settle disputes to save your company both time and expense, but I am always prepared to assert your rights at trial.

KNOWLEDGEABLE LITIGATOR HANDLES BREACH OF CONTRACT CASES

To run a business smoothly and successfully, owners often have to place their trust in the hands of employees, third-party contractors or other businesses. When that trust is broken, it can affect business operations, profits, consumer confidence and more. When a party to a contract doesn’t perform, there are remedies I can seek for monetary damages or equitable relief. These may include:

  • Compensatory damages — Reimbursement for immediate monetary loss
  • Consequential and incidental damages — Compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach
  • Attorney fees and costs — Amounts available only if the contract expressly states they are recoverable
  • Liquidated damages — Amounts specified in the contract that are payable for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance
  • Specific performance — Court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract
  • Punitive damages — Penalty for a party’s objectionable behavior, meant to punish the breaching party and discourage other parties from acting in a similar manner
  • Rescission — Cancellation of the contract, with both sides excused from further performance and payments made under the contract returned
  • Reformation — Change in the terms of the contract when the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed

At Law Office of Bryson Woulfe, I am committed to helping business owners achieve the best legal remedy for breach of contract cases, whether they are the plaintiffs or defendants.

SKILLED ATTORNEY NEGOTIATES FROM A POSITION OF STRENGTH

Resolving a business dispute outside of court saves companies both time and money. My firm will seek to have frivolous claims dropped or dismissed and work strategically to negotiate favorable settlements at the bargaining table. I understand the advantages of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration. As a skilled negotiator, I will help clients get their businesses back on track while avoiding the expense of litigation.

EXPERIENCED LITIGATOR PRESSES FOR YOUR RIGHTS IN COURT

If litigation becomes necessary, you can count on me to build a strong case and argue it skillfully before a judge. In addition to breach of contract, the possible legal actions that may be brought against a business are wide-ranging and can include complaints from employees, customers, other businesses or the government related to:

    • Insurance
    • Business torts
    • Products liability
    • Professional liability
    • Partnership and shareholder disputes
    • Banking and creditor issues, including lender liability
    • Intellectual property, including copyright and trademark infringement
    • Antitrust, unfair practices and trade regulation violations
    • Securities
    • Breach of warranty
    • Construction law
    • Environmental law
    • Real estate
    • Toxic tort

For issues such as these, I will provide trustworthy legal guidance and representation that protects your business’s bottom line.

CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY REPRESENTS BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS IN BREACH OF CONTRACT CASES

EXPERIENCED LITIGATOR HELPS CLIENTS IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA SETTLE OR LITIGATE DISPUTES

Law Office of Bryson Woulfe helps clients resolve the disputes that arise out of contracts and agreements. For business owners in the San Diego area and California, it is essential to know what to do if you entered a contract and things haven’t turned out the way you expected. I can provide you with the knowledgeable assistance you need to understand your legal rights. I help clients enforce contracts through a variety of means, including litigation. I also represent clients who have breached or have been accused of breaching an agreement. I have the skills necessary to represent you or your business when you are on either side of a breach of contract claim.

CALIFORNIA LAWYER HELPS YOU UNDERSTAND BREACH OF CONTRACT

Breach of contract is a fairly common occurrence in the world of business. A breach occurs when someone violates the terms of an agreement. A breach can occur at any time after the creation of a contract. Either party can cause a breach through its actions or inactions. Some breaches are justified under the law and others are not. When breaches are small, the parties may be able to continue performance under their agreement. Breaches that are serious enough to disrupt the entire purpose of the contract may be considered material breaches, rendering the contract void.

Breaches occur for many reasons. I represent clients in all types of breach of contract cases, including:

  • Failure to pay for or deliver a product or services
  • Missed deadlines
  • Failure to meet the terms of a secondary agreement, such as a lease, mortgage or loan document
  • Disputes over terms in the contract
  • Disputes between partners or workers
  • Work stoppages

When your company is affected by a breach, I will take steps to bring the other party into compliance. I will first attempt to get them to cure the breach through performance or compensation. Next, I can seek a resolution through negotiations, but I am prepared to pursue a remedy through litigation. I will seek the maximum amount of damages allowed under the law in order to compensate your business for its losses.

SKILLED ADVOCATE DEFENDS CLIENTS ACCUSED OF A BREACH

In every contract dispute, at least one company will find itself on the defense. I represent clients who have wrongfully been accused of breaching a contract. In many cases, actions that would normally constitute a breach are allowed because of something the other party did first. I also represent clients who have breached their contracts purposely in order to pursue alternatives, in what is known as “efficient breach.” The law does not seek to punish those who breach contacts. Rather, the law’s aim is to make each party whole. This might mean restoring any money the company lost or potentially compensating them for the profits they expected to earn. I help clients in this situation develop defenses for their actions and skillfully defend their rights in court.
