Business and Contract Disputes

In today’s business world, it is not uncommon to find yourself involved in a business or contract dispute. Business disputes involve such things as unfair competition, non-compete covenants, violations of trade secrets, restrictive covenants and employment contracts. Contract disputes can involve such matters as specific performance, rescission, reformation or cancellation of a contract, breach of contract and subrogation.

There are several avenues to take if you find yourself party to a business or contract dispute:

Mediation – This is a process whereby a third party, or a mediator, assists in resolving the dispute. The mediator, however, has no authority to make a binding decision. Among the advantages of mediation is that it is a private process, and it is fairly quick and inexpensive. Also, since mediators help to resolve disputes with consideration of both sides of the issue, there is a better chance of future business dealing between the two parties.

Arbitration – Sometimes if disputes cannot be resolved through mediation, the parties involved turn to arbitration. This is a process whereby an impartial party considers the dispute and comes up with a final and binding judgment. The parties involved usually do not have an option to appeal the arbitrator’s decision, unless that option is specifically included in the determination.

Litigation – This is a formal process whereby a dispute is heard publicly in a courtroom. The arguments are heard by a judge appointed by the court, rather than a mediator or arbitrator selected by the parties involved. In a litigation proceeding, rules of evidence are allowed and appeals of the final decision are possible. Litigations often take longer than mediations or arbitrations because each case must wait until it can be scheduled for court.

Disputes can be costly for business owners, regardless of the avenue of resolution chosen. A fair, quick and amicable resolution is important for all business owners. To protect your business, it is necessary to utilize the services of an experienced attorney. If you have a business or contract dispute, contact Kearns Rotolo Law attorneys for advice.

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

- Kim

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
