Efficiently Resolving Contract Disputes In the Bay Area

When parties sign a contract, at least at the outset, they usually intend to fulfill their respective obligations under the contract. However, contract disputes often arise later for various reasons.

  • In some cases, a party may feel wronged or have a different interpretation of the expectations that were set in the contract. Even though a legal contract is supposed to represent a "meeting of the minds," misunderstandings are common.
  • In other cases, a party may fail to uphold their end of the bargain. Breach of contract occurs when a party violates the terms of the contract and the other party is negatively affected.
  • Disputes may also arise over issues that are not specifically addressed in the contract. Many contracts fail to address important issues that could arise, especially when not drafted by a skilled lawyer.
  • Additionally, contract disputes can result from a broken promise or representation that one party relied upon to their detriment. Contracts do not need to be in writing to be enforceable; oral contracts are legally enforceable.
