Contracts outline an agreement between people or businesses. Contracts generally outline duties and responsibilities, and may identify the remedies that will be used in case one or the other party breaches their contractual duties (for example, the contract might require mediation or arbitration).
Tort disputes involve instances where one party was harmed or injured due to the actions of another where harm can be caused intentionally but is more often a produce of negligence.
We regularly assist our clients with determining how best to pursue a resolution. Sometimes, a strongly worded letter from your lawyer will provide suitable results. For some matters, a negotiated compromise might be in order. Other circumstances may require a full-scale court battle or arbitration. Each situation is different and must be assessed base on the merits of the case, the determination of the other side, and the lasting effects of a decision.
