Breach of Contract

At the heart of almost any commercial litigation lies a breached contract. Contracts can be involved in almost any business, non-profit, or governmental pursuit. Lanier Ford’s litigation attorneys represent clients in pursuing breach-of-contract claims. They thoroughly analyze the contract, the counterclaims and defenses, and prepare and present a client’s claims and defenses effectively and efficiently.

Not only are our attorneys experienced in pursuing breach-of-contract claims before federal and state courts, but also before arbitration panels and mediators.

Among the many types of contract disputes our attorneys have litigated are the following:

  • Professional service agreements.
  • Insurance contracts, particularly coverage disputes.
  • Employment contracts, especially noncompetition and confidentiality agreements.
  • Vendor, distributor, and supplier agreements.
  • Real estate contracts.
  • Shareholder agreements and operating agreements for limited liability companies.
  • Intellectual property licenses, involving patents, copyrights, trademarks, service marks, and trade secrets.
  • Partnership agreements.
  • Notes and other financial agreements.
