Contract Lawsuits In Minneapolis, MN

Everything in our lives involves contracts. After all, you knew what a
contract was—especially a breached contract—by the time you
were five years old. A contract is a promise. And no one likes a broken promise.
Businesses require enforceable contracts in order to run. Your supplier
promised your shipment would be there by Tuesday. Your customer promised
you’d be paid by the first of the month. Your employee promised
she wouldn’t work for a competitor for a year after leaving your
company. You promised you’d have the product to the job site by
8:00 a.m. These are all contracts that shouldn't be broken.
Minneapolis Lawyers for Failed Agreements, Broken Promises & Breached Contracts
When these contracts are broken, there are negative consequences. These
can range from the contract’s breach causing delays, other contracts
not being honored, and money lost for everyone involved. When a contract
is broken, or if someone thinks it has not been honored, you need the
Minneapolis and St. Paul business litigators at MKT Law, PLC.
At MKT Law: Litigation is our Business.
Our Minneapolis business litigation firm understands complex contract litigation.
We represent businesses and people with breached contracts and those accused
of breaking a contract. Either way, you will want to know right away how
successful litigation may be over the contract. We analyze your situation
and give an honest assessment of your case with the inherent uncertainties
- Was an enforceable agreement even reached?
- Was there a meeting of the minds?
- Was there consideration requiring a promise to be kept?
- Was there a breach or was it not even an agreement?
- Can you not honor the contract because you think the other party will not
or cannot perform?
- Can you force someone to specifically perform the agreement?
- What damages will fairly compensate you?
- Has there been any harm done from the contract not being completed?
Sued over Contract in Minnesota?
Over the years, we have
handled hundreds of cases, ranging in complexity for businesses from throughout the country. Our
knowledge of how businesses operate and rely on contracts allows us to
provide our clients with pragmatic counsel and creative solutions. When
addressing contract litigation matters, we aggressively protect the interests
of our clients, both inside and outside of the courtroom.
If you live in Timbuktu (or anywhere else) and the contract you signed
says all legal actions will take place in Minnesota, give one of our business
litigation attorney a call. Many contracts force businesses to litigate
in this state if the contracting company (or a related company) is located
in Minnesota, even if you are thousands of miles away (or more) and have
never been to the Great State of Minnesota. We have extensive experience
with forum selection clauses and know how to economically handle cases
when our clients are from outside the state.
Owners of smaller businesses are generally required to sign a lot of contracts
personally. This is a way for the other party to get around the personal
liability protections you enjoy due to running your business as a corporation
or LLC. These cases can involve numerous strategic decisions about how
to proceed based on your particular situation. We can defend both you
and your business, or only one of you, and have the experience to craft
the most effective defense to protect you and your business.
When your contract says the prevailing party shall pay the non-prevailing
party’s attorney’s fees, what does that mean? Will the Court
make the other party pay your attorney’s fees? Will you have to
pay for the attorney’s fees for the attorney that’s suing
you? These clauses are more complicated than they appear. They also are
not always enforced or applied in the manner you would think when reading
the actual language in your contract. We can explain to you how the Courts
in Minnesota treat attorney fee clauses. An attorney’s fees clause,
if applicable and enforceable, can have a significant impact on how your
contract case should be handled. Our Minneapolis business litigation lawyers
can help you intelligently navigate cases involving contracts when attorney’s
fees are at issue.
