Contract DisputesA contract dispute can occur for any number of reasons. The contract may have been written poorly using ambiguous terms, or one of the parties may not have lived up to their promises. A vendor may have failed to fulfill its part of the agreement, you may have signed a partnership contract and are trying to claim your rightful portion of the company, or your former employer is alleging that you have breached a nondisclosure agreement. Regardless of the contributing factors, representation by a skilled lawyer is critical.
