Contract Disputes

Southern California Contract Dispute Lawyer

Contracts connect businesses. They allow companies to work together in mutually beneficial relationships. When one business fails to abide by the contract, it leads to a serious dispute.

Section 1549 of the Civil Code defines a contract simply as β€œan agreement to do or not to do a certain thing.” Additionally, the law provides that β€œa contract is a promise or a set of promises for the breach of which the law gives a remedy, or the performance of which the law in some way recognizes as a duty.” In other words, both parties are legally bound to fulfill the promises they make in a contract.

Interference with Prospective Business Relationships

In addition to handling contract disputes, we are able to address cases involving interference with prospective economic relations. The law imposes liability for improper methods of disrupting or diverting the business relationship of another which fall outside the boundaries of fair competition.

To move forward with a complaint of intentional interference with prospective economic relations, the following must be present:

  • An economic relationship between the plaintiff and a third party, with a strong possibility of future economic benefit
  • A defendant that was aware of this relationship
  • Acts on the part of the defendant intended to damage the relationship
  • Disruption of the burgeoning business relationship
  • Economic damage to the plaintiff

The lack of a contract in these situations makes them legally complex. We have the experience to handle these challenging cases.
