Resolving Breach of Contract Disputes
When two parties in any type of business relationship (employer/employee, buyer/seller, merchant/customer, vendor/purchaser, etc.) have a dispute, the nature of the dispute is typically contractual at its heart. Although most people think of contracts as written documents which expressly set forth the understanding between the parties, some contracts are not written at all yet still valid and enforceable, while others are not expressly stated but are implied in law based on the conduct between the parties. Contract terms are not always clear, giving rise to different interpretations. Sometimes a party either cannot or chooses not to perform, and litigation may be necessary.
At Shelbourne Law, we have years of experience working closely with businesses from entity formation through the life of their company. We are fully aware of the law of contracts in South Carolina and how contract disputes are resolved in the courts. Attorney Brandt Shelbourne is also a certified mediator who is always ready to help disputing parties find common ground and an out-of-court resolution to their dispute that saves time, money and is fair to both sides.
Strong Representation in Business Tort Claims
Not all business law disputes are contractual in nature. Claims of business torts such as fraud, deceptive trade practices, unfair competition and false advertising can be brought between competitors or members of the public, even without a contractual relationship. The potential liability and damages in a business tort case can far exceed contract disputes as well. Whether pursuing or defending against a business tort claim, our firm provides strong, effective representation to protect your rights, promote your interests, and ensure that you are treated fairly.
