Baton Rouge Breach of Business Contract Information

Are You Faced With a Breach of Business Contract Issue?

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 Baton Rouge breach of business contract attorney who can advise you on your legal options.

Failing to Do as Promised Can Breach a Contract

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.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se - This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute - Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction - Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
