Contracts touch every area of a business and provide the foundation for your dealings with employees, clients, and vendors. Contract disputes occur when someone fails to meet the obligations defined in a contract. A well-structured agreement is the first step to preventing these issues, as it will outline the recourse if someone fails to do what they are contractually obligated to carry out. Litigation is sometimes necessary, but often a breach of contract can be resolved outside of court.
Texas is a great place to have a business. Our laws make it a favorable climate in many ways, and new businesses are being started every day. However, this means that our state is no stranger to a wide variety of business problems. A business dispute can bring great hardship to your business and stress to the parties involved. Unfortunately, legal disputes are commonplace in our society today and will impact most businesses. At Martin Cukjati & Tom, LLP, we have extensive experience successfully handling business litigation cases, working with our clients to prevent a lengthy court process if possible and fighting for them in court if litigation is unavoidable and your best option. Risk management, negotiation, arbitration, and meditation are a few tools we can employ if we think that will lead to a better outcome for our clients; however, our team has extensive experience helping clients navigate state and federal courts from the trial level throughout the appeals process.
Our goal is always to minimize the cost of disputes for our clients and help them get a positive outcome for their business. We also know a long, drawn-out legal process serves no one, so we aim to get business litigation issues resolved as quickly as possible so you can focus on the health and success of your organization. We often see clients try to resolve things themselves that they may see as minor issues only to have it spiral out of control into a costly court battle. Contacting us when a problem arises means we can help keep things under control and avoid a significant financial loss for the business and its owners.
