Contract Disputes Archives

Hiring new workers? Make sure to update your employee handbook

One of the most important signs that your business is succeeding is the need to hire more workers. This growth is a sign of confidence and optimism, not just for an individual business but also for the economy. And recently, it was announced that there was a six-point increase in job creation among small businesses last month. 

Restrictive covenants: When do they go too far?

Restrictive covenants - including noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements - play an important role in protecting your business. They help you guard the competitive edge you have worked so hard to build. They shield your business from unscrupulous employees and vendors. And they prevent employees and partners from gutting your business when they leave.

Tesla settles lawsuit with former head of autopilot program

Uber and Google are not the only two that can steal the intellectual property headlines. A recent settlement in a breach of contract lawsuit between Tesla and the maker of their autopilot feature on their cars briefly made people forget about the epic lawsuit between the two giants of the tech industry.

Mass transportation company, rail car maker in dispute

While the following story isn't happening in this country, it is still an important news story that highlights some critical aspects of contracts and contract disputes. This story is from Canada, where the management company for public transportation for the Greater Toronto area tried to cancel a contract they had with a rail car manufacturer from 2010.

Remedies in the wake of a breach of contract

As we have discussed on this blog before, contract disputes are complicated, but important, pieces of business litigation. Companies that enter into contracts (usually) have the best of intentions. However, unforeseen circumstances or logistical complications can make it difficult, if not impossible, for one party to fulfill its end of the contract. This is where a breach of contract can occur.

Never deal with a contract dispute without legal help

Contracts are formed with both symbolic and literal meaning. Symbolically, a contract represents a shared trust that two or more sides have with each other. Literally, a contract represents an agreed upon set of rules and guidelines for how the two or more sides will work together to achieve a common and mutually beneficial goal. Having the contract in written form and legally recognized is important, so that if one side doesn't hold up their end of the bargain, there is a legal process for the victimized side to seek justice.

Enforcing contracts an unenviable but necessary task

In our last post, we talked about a lawsuit between Relativity Media and Netflix, one that stems back to 2010 when Relativity and Netflix were partners. Now locked in a breach of contract lawsuit, Relativity and Netflix are dealing with the public fallout from this. Relativity is also trying to claw its way out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
