Contracts allow parties to reduce to a writing the foundations of their business enterprise and/or relationship and commit themselves to a course of conduct. Sometimes these contractual agreements need to be enforced, defended, or otherwise interpreted in court.
A lawsuit based on a breach of contract may be necessary to enforce or interpret the terms of the contract or resolve issues related to fraud, duress, the legality of the contractual terms, or errors in the contract.
Remedies for contract disputes vary and may include monetary damages or specific performance compelling one party to satisfy specific contractual terms.
We have handled a variety of contract claims involving different industries, including business buy-sell agreements, brokerage and financial management services agreements, profit-participation agreements, licensing and royalty agreements, medical and healthcare partnership or services agreements, and commercial operating and lease agreements.
A fiduciary duty arises in certain well-defined close financial relationships (e.g., partnerships, corporate officers and directors, financial advisers, brokers, et cet.) but also may be implied from circumstances.
A fiduciary duty imposes added and special requirements upon the fiduciary given the sensitive relationship at issue. Among other things, a fiduciary may not take advantage of their position of trust or act selfishly in support of their own interest.
We are experienced in dealing with a variety of breach of fiduciary duty claims in different industries and contexts. We have handled claims of fiduciary malfeasance involving partnership disputes and dissolutions, financial management, brokers, and corporate governance and stewardship.
