It might be strange to consider but businesses, more or less, are built upon
business contracts. Everything that must be done and every decision that must be made, both
monumental and minute, is or should be governed by some sort of contract
somewhere. Purchasing supply from vendors,
hiring new employees, dealing with customer issues, merging with a partner, and so on all have
controlling contracts that must be respected and followed if the business
is to operate smoothly and profitably.
Due to their encompassing nature and undeniable importance, the moment
there is a breach of contract, you should take legal action right away
and in a way that you know is best for your company. In most situations,
this translates to hiring a business contract attorney to clean up the
potential mess for you.
Five reasons you should hire a business lawyer to manage your breach of
Expedience: The longer a contract remains breached and in dispute, the more likely
your business will be negatively impacted. Some contract breaches can
be so severe that you can’t even run your business at all until
it is cleared up. With an attorney on your side, you can find one solution
or another faster thanks to their knowledge and experience.
Accuracy: Your contract breach isn’t patched up unless it is fixed with 100%
accurate legal processes and language. Guessing how to resolve the breach
without completely understanding the laws behind your contract would be
like relying on bailing out water to stop a ship from sinking; it might
work to some extent but you actually need to patch up the hole, or get
a new vessel entirely.
Authority: Opposing parties that willingly breach a contract, rather than inadvertently
so, may make that decision in hopes that you won’t have the power
to hold them accountable. With a business lawyer acting as your representative,
you gain authority and make it more likely that other parties will respect
the outcome of the case.
Mediation: A breach of contract does not have to lead to litigation and major conflicts,
if you know how to avoid it. An attorney can act as a mediator for all
parties, or promote fair solutions that do not need a court’s intervention.
Prevention: What caused the breach in the first place can cause it again if your solution
does not use forward-thinking to identify potential future conflicts.
With a comprehensive knowledge of business law, an attorney can devise
solutions that anticipate and eliminate problems that would have otherwise
arisen years later.
