Business Law FloridaOur Attorneys Assist Businesses in Legal Disputes

Massey & Duffy, PLLC, has a long history of successfully litigating commercial matters in Gainesville, Ocala and throughout Florida. Each partner is an experienced contract lawyer, capable of representing clients in all manners of business law, including breach of contract disputes, commercial torts, partnership disputes, landlord tenant disagreements and other contractual issues.

Misunderstandings and miscommunication are common in every industry, from the smallest businesses to the largest corporations. If the normal means of communication fail to sort out the problem, it may be in your best interest to contact a North Central Florida contract lawyer familiar with other businesses in the area.

Depending on the source of your disagreement, your contract lawyer may advise mediation, litigation, or arbitration. Mediation can be especially useful in partnership disputes between two people who have equal bargaining power. Oftentimes, a third party’s opinion and fresh perspective is all that is needed to move the dispute forward toward resolution.

If you and your partner have reached an impasse over a dispute and your partnership agreement is not sufficient to create a solution for your business, contact a contract lawyer from the firm of Massey & Duffy, PLLC. Your first consultation is free; your lawyer will examine both sides of the dispute and advise you on the best course of action.

Breach of Contract Disputes

Contracts come in many forms. Whether formal or informal, written or verbal, every contract carries with it the implication that each party will conform to the promises made within the contract. A breach of contract occurs when one party fails to uphold one or more of the promises. Not every breach of contract between businesses requires the services of a contract lawyer; however, when litigation is unavoidable, it is a good idea to seek out a contract lawyer who will take the time to research the fine points of the contract in question and answer all your questions. Depending on the severity of the contract breach, your lawyer may be able to obtain one or more successful outcomes in your case, some of which include:

  • Compensatory damages – This is a monetary reimbursement designed to compensate you for any losses that you may have incurred as a result of the contract breach (except for emotional distress).
  • Rescission – If a rescission is decided upon, the contract is dissolved; any money that originally exchanged hands is returned to the original owner and the involved parties are excused from any further action on the contract.

Other Business Disputes

In addition to the situations above, the contract lawyers of Massey & Duffy, PLLC, can handle a wide variety of other business disputes and commercial litigation, including:

  • Insurance disputes
  • Mediation
  • Composition of complex contracts
  • Fraud and other commercial torts
  • Landlord-tenant disagreements

No matter what your situation, the contract lawyer who will work with you understands the importance of resolving business disputes quickly. If you are like most business owners, every day spent in court or handling legal matters costs you money and takes you away from the important everyday responsibilities of your business.
