Contracts exist to protect the rights and interests of individuals and businesses on both sides of a transaction. Contracts are legally binding, so if either side breaks the contract by failing to provide specified goods or services, or failing to meet certain conditions of the contract, the other party can file a legal complaint.
Breaks, or breaches, of contract can result not only in loss of trust and goodwill between the two parties (and consequently loss of business), but also in material loss of product or money, so most breach of contract cases end in either settlements or court judgments for repayment of damages.
These cases rely on proving a breach happened and showing either material or minor damages. You can count on our contract law experience and knowledge to thoroughly investigate your case and guide you efficiently through the legal proceedings.
If you believe you have a breach of contract case, or are accused of breaching a contract, the contract law attorneys at Dozier Miller can help. We’ll work with you to establish your case and see it to a final resolution, whether that’s settling through mediation or arbitration, or taking your case before a judge.
Businesses are constantly making transactions: buying and selling products, services and shares or partnerships in the company. It’s never-ending exchange. At Dozier Miller, we understand the intricate inner-workings of business transactions. As businesspeople ourselves, we appreciate the importance of protecting your rights and interests through every transaction.
We hear the word “corporation” all the time in business law, but what does it mean, legally, and how does the law handle it? A corporation is a legal entity that can act much like a person; it can enter into contracts, sue and be sued and carry out business transactions.
It takes careful evaluation and planning to structure mergers and acquisitions that offer the greatest benefit to your company. That’s where Dozier Miller’s mergers and acquisitions team can help.
Workplaces can be stressful environments, especially when there’s tension between employer and employee. Employment law exists to protect employees’ rights and employers’ interests when legal disputes arise in the workplace.
Just as the law protects our ownership rights to our homes and possessions, it protects ownership of intellectual property: designs, inventions, creative works. For businesses, protecting intellectual property means ensuring value.
There’s nothing like tedious paperwork to take the excitement out of launching a new business. Mounting questions and research about the proper legal steps can slow your momentum if you don’t have a clear understanding of the formation process.
We know that early prevention of litigation is usually the most cost-effective way to for a business to operate, but if your business is facing a lawsuit or legal action, you can count on Dozier Miller to be tenacious in representing and guarding your interests.
At the most basic level, a non-compete agreement is a contract in which the employee/contractor agrees to avoid actions that could damage the employer’s business. But there’s more to it than that.
