Recovery for breach of contract or other business disputes

When a party to a contract fails to perform, he damages the other business. This damage often goes beyond the immediate inconvenience of getting less than promised by the contract. The breach can also cost you future profits if you are unable to serve your clients as a result. Ms. Fanady can help you achieve the best legal remedy for a breach of contract, such as:

•    Compensatory damages –  reimbursement for immediate monetary loss
•    Consequential and incidental damages –  compensation for additional foreseeable losses caused by the breach
•    Attorney fees and costs –  amounts available only if the contract expressly states they are recoverable
•    Liquidated damages –  amounts specified in the contract that are payable for particular breaches, such as late or substandard performance
•    Specific performance –  court order requiring the breaching party to fulfill the terms of the contract
•    Rescission –  cancellation of the contract,  with both sides excused from further performance and payments made under the contract returned
•    Reformation –  change in the terms of the contract when the court believes there was an honest misunderstanding by the parties about what was to be performed

Affordable alternatives to a civil suit

The cost of traditional litigation can easily exceed the amount of the contract. Fortunately, various means of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration, are often less costly and quicker than civil lawsuits, and can deliver the same remedies. Ms. Fanady has successfully represented clients in arbitration and mediation hearings, and has settled numerous lawsuits prior to trial, saving legal expenses and getting their businesses back on track.
