New Jersey attorney provides effective support in complex cases

Business contracts are complex documents that set forth each signer’s rights and responsibilities.

At Laurie Rush-Masuret, P.A. in Bernardsville, our attorney has over 35 years of experience representing New Jersey business clients in all types of contract disputes.

Whether you believe a contract violation has occurred, or you’re being accused of a breach, our firm offers knowledgeable counsel.

Common reasons for contract disputes

When your contract partner does not perform in accord with the agreed-upon terms, it can force you to shift time away from your key business priorities. Some of the most common business breach of contract claims involve:

  • Unsuccessful transactions
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Commercial leases
  • Conflicts among fellow business stakeholders
  • Disagreements with contractors in construction disputes

Not all contract disputes trigger litigation. In fact, many disagreements can be resolved outside of the court system through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods. These options can save both parties time and money. When you are involved in a contract dispute, we will work diligently to resolve the matter favorably and efficiently.

Legal remedies for contract disputes

There are several possible legal remedies for parties in involved in a contract dispute, including:

  • Monetary damages — Compensation might be awarded based on the victimized party’s actual losses or a set amount given in a contract’s liquidated damages clause.
  • Contract reformation — A court could revise contract terms to reflect the circumstances and true intentions of both parties.
  • Rescission — In certain situations, the court might terminate the agreement between the parties following a breach.
  • Specific performance — In certain instances, the court could compel the party in breach to fulfill their obligations under the contract.

If your case ends up going to arbitration or litigation, our highly skilled attorney will synthesize the relevant facts and prepare a thorough argument supporting your legal position.
