Contract Disputes

Many commercial cases stem from a contract issue, typically when one party fails their contractual duty or when each party interprets the terms differently. Sometimes there is outright fraud. These conflicts can happen in various contexts involving individuals and/or businesses, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Contractor disputes
  • Employment disputes
  • Landlord-tenant conflicts
  • Insurance claim disputes
  • Franchise disputes

Under Florida contracts law, both written and oral contracts are legally binding and enforceable, except in arrangements where the law specifically requires a contract in writing. This means that, in general, parties need to honor verbal contracts as well. This is one of the common subjects of disagreements in the commercial arena, for which a litigator’s services may be necessary when pursuing a lawsuit.

For example, suppose your business has been hurt financially or may likely suffer financially in the future due to a wrongful act committed against you; this is known as economic torts or business torts. These acts are sometimes intentional, but many times are due to reckless or negligent actions.

Florida also has rigorous standards for claims of contract breach. In order for a claim to be valid, the claimant must show that there was a “material breach” – a violation that strikes the very essence of the contract. Proving this to a judge requires effective argumentation by a skilled litigator.
