Contract and Business Litigation
At Swartz & Swartz, P.C., we provide a broad spectrum of legal services in contract and business litigation matters. There are many complicated laws protecting individuals and entities against unfair and wrongful breaches of contracts. It is important to know your legal rights if you are having a dispute over matters you believe were part of an oral or written contract.
Contract and business litigation can be handled with various types of fee arrangements, including in some circumstances a contingent fee arrangement combined with payment for services based on reasonable hourly rates. Contract disputes arise out of relationships with contractors, business associates, employment matters, vendors, insurance companies and a variety of other circumstances. Certain contracts must be in writing while others can be enforced even if it was an oral contract. There are several laws in Massachusetts and New England that protect consumers as well as business entities from deceptive and unfair business practices. Some laws even provide for payment of attorney fees and court costs as well as punitive damages. It is important to make sure your attorney is well versed and knowledgeable in these areas.
