When Another Business Does Not Do What They Agreed To Do
Contracts are at the heart of all business dealings, from employment arrangements to purchase and sales transactions to multimillion-dollar development deals. Virtually every exchange involving a good or service also involves oral or written promises between the parties.
When you enter into a contract with a business partner, customer or supplier, you rely on them to fulfill their contractual promises. When contractual promises are fulfilled, it typically benefits both parties. When one party fails to fulfill its promises – breaches the contract – it can lead to distrust, business disruption and massive financial losses. If you have a contract breached by another party, you need an experienced attorney to help protect your rights and interests. At DLM LAW LLC, our attorneys have over 25 years of experience assisting businesses throughout the Kansas City area and nationwide with breach of contract disputes.
