Understanding Business or Contract Disputes in Massachusetts
The law requires people in business to treat each other fairly. If you feel that a business partner, customer, supplier, or other party has been dishonest with you, you do not have to tolerate it. Massachusetts law gives you the right to seek damages or restitution, and in some cases you may be awarded your attorneys’ fees and costs.
Damages for a breach of contract may include:
- Compensatory damages
- Punitive damages
- Nominal damages
- Liquidated damages
Sometimes even family or friends can get into a dispute over business. For example, siblings who have inherited a family business do not always agree on how the business should be managed. The Worcester administrative lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can handle business dispute cases with tact and can seek a positive outcome.
When business agreements are not in writing, misunderstandings can easily arise about who has what responsibilities and how much money should go to whom. In fact, there are some kinds of contracts that may be invalid if they are not in writing. Even if you do not have a written contract, however, you may have rights that can be enforced, and our Worcester administrative attorneys can assess your situation and determine the most economical way for you to obtain the best possible solution.
Even when there is a written contract or other written agreement, however, reasonable people may disagree about its meaning. Courts can resolve such disagreements by considering the circumstances under which the agreement was written, including who wrote it and why. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP LLP, our Worcester administrative lawyers can help you understand whether a court might adopt your interpretation of a contract.
