Breach of Contract
Many business disputes have to do with an alleged breach of contract. All relationships with someone else governed by a contract, including those with real estate agreements and transactions to provide services or goods, can lead to disagreements about performance. While some of these disagreements can be resolved outside of court, more complex concerns often require litigation or arbitration. Finding an experienced lawyer with a background in working hard for client outcomes is strongly recommended. All Colorado Springs contracts are governed by an implied “good faith and fair dealing duty.”
Breach of Trust
Any situation where a person or entity has been authorized to exercise fiduciary duty could lead to a breach of trust case. A trust beneficiary, shareholder, LLC member, or partner may be eligible to pursue a breach of trust claim against those who have overstepped or violated their fiduciary duty.
Deceptive Trade Practices, Business Torts, and Fraud Claims
Any kind of fraud or misrepresentation could lead to a litigated dispute. Both misrepresentations and claims of fraud can be due to mistakes or negligence. Colorado’s Consumer Protection Act, the Federal Interstate Lands Sales Full Disclosure Act, and other state and federal laws may be involved in these kinds of complex litigation claims.
Tortious Contract Interference
An individual or business can face allegations of tortious interference with a contract when any outside or third party is perceived to pursuing unfair competition practices. If a third party impedes progress, formation, or performance, a tortious contract interference claim may be the only way to stop this third party from this behavior.
When someone fails to perform under a contract or breaches one, court judgments may lead to specific styles of debt collection. Common contracts associated with debt collection involve deeds of trust, mortgages, promissory notes, and guaranty agreements.
Having the right attorney to help you when facing a complex litigation is essential; a knowledgeable attorney can help you figure out next steps and ensure that someone is advocating for your interests. Retaining the right lawyer is critical regardless of where you find yourself in the litigation process.
The right litigation attorney should have a number of essential skills include an assertive and a dedicated pursuit of client outcomes, intellect, understanding of the law and the art of persuasion, and diligence. When litigation issues are complex, these skills remain important, but an experienced lawyer will also have additional skill-sets well-suited to the case and issues at hand.
