Businesses conduct transactions with vendors every day: office supply providers, copy machine services, food and beverage deliverers are just a few examples. If a service or product vendor with which you do business has breached its contract with your company by failing to perform as promised, contact a Hayden breach of business contract attorney who can advise you on your legal options.
Breach of contract is defined as failing to do that which has been promised in a legally binding agreement. Any party to a contract can commit a breach if he or she does not fully understand the obligations the contract imposes. Business contracts cover the gamut of business relationships, including service contracts, contracts for goods and products; employment-related agreements; lease agreements and more. It is important for business owners to know how to formulate a valid contract, understand its customary provisions, and lawfully enforce its terms.
No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.
An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.
Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.
Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.
Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.
Affidavit – A sworn written statement made under oath. An affidavit is meant to be a supporting document to the court assisting in the verification of certain facts. An affidavit may or may not require notarization.
