A handshake should be enough for someone to hold up their end of the bargain, right? Unfortunately, it's 2017, and not everyone is as scrupulous as we'd like them to be. When push comes to shove in a business deal, agreeing parties may try to break your contract and take advantage of the situation. Or, they might break the contract due to financial issues or circumstances out of their control.
Let's say, for example, you're a contractor building a $2 million property on Melbourne Beach. You agreed to the terms and started the work, but suddenly the payments from your employer come to a halt. Now -- according to the contract -- you're owed tens of thousands of dollars for the work you did, but you can't get paid.
Breaches of contract can happen in an infinite number of ways, and the above challenge is just one of them. At Frese, Hansen, Anderson, Anderson, Hueston & Whitehead, representing contracted service providers in their legal disputes is one of the most common types of legal cases we take on in the Melbourne, Florida, area.
We also frequently represent doctors in contractual disagreements related to non-compete clauses. It's not uncommon, for example, for a doctor to leave a practice and be told by his former employer that he or she can't work in Brevard County for the next several years. In some situations, the ex-employer has the right to take this position, and in many other situations, the employer has no right at all.
Regardless what side of a contractual disagreement you happen to be on, Frese, Hansen, Anderson, Anderson, Hueston & Whitehead is here to help. We will study the details of your case to determine the strengths and weaknesses of your position. We will then devise a suitable "plan of action" to defend your contractual rights in court.
