Contracts are the glue that keeps agreements in place, allowing a business or other enterprise to exist, operate, and hopefully, prosper. But when terms of a contract are breached, knowingly or not, it can have a devastating effect on your business. The team of Santa Clarita business attorneys at Poole & Shaffery, LLP, has 25 years of experience and skill in resolving contract disputes quickly, whether it involves mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
Contract disputes can occur in many forms, such as employment contracts, vendor contracts, non-competition agreements, non-disclosures and more. Sometimes the dispute involves the interpretation of certain contract terms. Other times, one party does not carry out or uphold its obligations and responsibilities that are laid out in the contract. There can be conflicts with regard to intellectual property contracts, including patents, distribution contracts, publishing contracts and many others.
When contracts are in writing, it's much easier to spot where infractions have occurred. In California, however, not all contracts have to be in writing to be valid. In those cases, it can be more of a problem to prove certain elements of the verbal contract. There is also a statute of limitations in California of two years for an oral breach of contract and four years for a written contract.
