Business and Commercial Litigation Involving Breach of Contract and More
A contract lies at the heart of every business transaction, and most companies deal with contracts and contractual relationships multiple times on a daily basis. Dealings with customers, clients, employees, independent contractors, vendors, distributors, suppliers and others all involve the fixing of contractual rights in one form or another. Given the multitude of contracts – express, implied, oral and written – that are dealt with every day, it is inevitable that disputes will arise and that some of these disputes will require resort to the courts for their resolution. When they do, the attorneys at Johnson, Westra, Broecker, Whittaker & Newitt, P.C. provide advice and representation to protect our clients’ rights and promote their interests in negotiations, mediation, arbitration, and courtroom litigation, including appeals where necessary.
