Contract Disputes Archives

What constitutes breach of contract and what happens afterwards?

No matter the reputation of a company and no matter how noble the intentions of a company, it is likely that at some point it will be involved in a contract dispute. Contract disputes often arise due to a breach of the contract. This occurs when provisions in the contract, which two parties agree to, aren't met. When those provisions or objectives aren't met, one party has "breached" the contract.

39,000 Verizon employees on east coast go on strike

Big companies are no stranger to controversies hitting the headlines. They are also no stranger to complex labor negotiations and issues, which are inherent to the business world. Along these lines, we are going to talk about the problems that have enveloped Verizon in recent weeks.

Yosemite trademark case a bewildering issue

Most Californians associate the name "Yosemite National Park" with natural beauty. The national park is one of the most well-known and beloved areas in the state, let alone the country. With all of the great trails, beautiful wilderness, and of course the famous Half Dome, there is no doubt that Yosemite National Park is a major part of the state's culture and the national landscape, both literally and figuratively. 

Interpretation of technical terms of contracts in California

For some businesses, it is rather common for the contracts they form with other parties to contain a variety of technical terms. Disputes sometimes come up regarding business contracts with technical terms. In some instances, these disputes center on disagreements over what technical terms in the contract mean for the purposes of the contract and what this means for the obligations of the parties.

Trump and NBC agree to arbitration over Miss USA dispute

California residents will likely be aware that remarks made by Donald Trump considered incendiary by many have led to several companies severing ties with the polarizing candidate for the GOP presidential nomination. Disparaging comments about Mexican illegal immigrants led NBC to terminate its relationship with Trump on June 29, and the Spanish television channel Univision announced that it was cancelling its coverage of the Miss USA beauty pageant. Trump owns the pageant jointly with NBCUniversal.

ESPN seeks injunction against Verizon for breach of contract

ESPN is pursuing an injunction against Verizon as well as damages related to the telecommunications company's FiOS TV service. Viewers in California may not yet know that a new service allows them to customize pay-TV bundles, an attempt to compete against rivals such as Netflix and Sling TV from Dish Network.

Breaching a sales contract

A sales contract is any contract between a buyer and a seller where the seller agrees to provide a certain product or service and the buyer agrees to provide some type of payment. Once both parties sign, the contract is legally binding, and the customer may sue if the terms described in the contract are not carried out. Sales contracts are common, and it is worthwhile for California residents to understand how they work.

Steps to take to avoid partnership disputes

Many entrepreneurs in California elect to form partnerships when they go into business with others. While this type of arrangement is often productive, problems may develop as the business matures and grows. Other partnership disputes may occur when new partners who may have differing views about how to move the business forward are brought into the picture. Partners who fail to address these issues in a timely manner run the risk of turning a mild disagreement into a serious confrontation.

Material breach and available remedies in California

Written agreements in many cases will contain provisions regarding remedies in the event of a material breach. A material breach in contract law is a failure to perform that irreparably breaks the contract and is often also referred to as a total breach. In the event of a material breach by one party to the contract, the other party reserves the right to terminate the agreement and go to court in an effort to collect damages related to the breach.
