Contract Disputes

Contract disputes can cause unnecessary and frustrating delays and resulting losses to you or your business. Seidensticker and San Filippo will review contracts for enforceability. When a dispute arises, we will work to identify the cause of the dispute and attempt to resolve it quickly. In many instances, legal matters or disputes can be resolved through effective negotiation, without the need for court proceedings or litigation.  In other cases, formal litigation through the courts is necessary, and as seasoned litigators and trial lawyers, we can provide representation to clients under either scenario.  We take pride in our commitment to serving clients’ needs and believe that our experience and reputation as zealous advocates are integral to successful attorney-client relationships.

Business Fraud and Misrepresentation

In contract law, all enforceable contracts contain an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. When a company intentionally misrepresents a term in the contract, they may be liable for fraud. In order to bring a successful case for fraudulent misrepresentation, the defendant must have made a false representation about a material fact. The defendant must have known (or should have known) that the representation was false, but made the representation anyway in order to persuade the plaintiff to act. The plaintiff must have relied on this false representation when accepting the contract, and suffered a loss as a result. If you believe that you have been damaged by business fraud, you need an experienced attorney to help you recover the damages that you have incurred. Seidensticker and San Filippo are experienced business attorneys who are tireless advocates for their clients. They will strive to recover the losses that you suffered as a result of fraud.

Professional, Client-Centered Service

Our law firm handles various types of civil matters, but we have made a conscious decision to keep our firm small and limit the number of new clients and cases we handle. New clients are often referred to us by other clients or attorneys, which we consider to be a compliment to our firm’s experience and reputation. We strive to maintain straightforward and unrestricted lines of communication with our clients to facilitate early assessment and evaluation of a client’s particular legal situation.  We believe that our personalized service and accessibility help us understand and maintain focus on each clients’ legal objectives so we can make recommendations and formulate strategies aimed at efficiently accomplishing those objectives.
