Resolving Contract Disputes Reasonably

A wronged party in a contract dispute may have an initial idea of "suing" the other party to make things right. In fact, losses may be great enough and the opponent may be uncooperative enough that a lawsuit makes sense. Even so, the costs of litigation can easily overcome any gains if a case headed for court gets out of hand.

Methods Of Resolution — Types Of Contracts

Weighing the projected costs against anticipated benefits is part of the necessary evaluation of a breach of contract case that can lead to a productive course of action, such as:

  • Demand letters
  • Negotiations
  • Mediation
  • Arbitration

At Carey Law Firm, P.C., our contract dispute lawyers in our Missoula offices are prepared to help you tackle a challenging contract dispute involving:

  • A purchase or sale agreement
  • A rental or lease contract
  • Any commercial or business deal

Breach Of Contract Case Resolution

Our Montana clients may be plaintiffs or defendants. From either side of a dispute, we educate them thoroughly so they will be ready to make wise decisions in their own cases. Our guidance is valuable but clients' own priorities are central to satisfactory resolution of breach of contract matters. Sometimes a courtroom is the only recourse to justice, and we are prepared to take a case as far as it needs to go. However, we urge parties to resolve contract disputes in their own best interests and this usually means an out-of-court settlement. The settlement may be in the form of payment or it may mean the other party agrees to perform an action (such as selling property or completing a construction project) that was previously left undone.

Before A Dispute Arises

If you are fortunate enough to be reading this before creating or signing a buy-sell agreement or a contract regarding any major purchase, lease or work project, we encourage you to bring it to our attention. We can review the proposed contract, suggest changes, handle negotiations and revise the contract to minimize your exposure to risk.
