Contracts

Business contracts can involve many areas of law, including real estate law, business litigation, estate planning, tax law, bankruptcy law and even criminal or personal injury claims.

The Los Angeles contract lawyers at Howard Law provide comprehensive representation in each area of law by utilizing all of the financial and legal resources available through our comprehensive law practice.

Contracts may be written, oral or implied, though written contracts are usually at issue in legal disputes. California contract law allows business contracts to be contested on a number of legal grounds, including a contract's legality; the competency or ability of a party to enter into a contract; mistakes, duress or fraud; and gross unfairness.

Those seeking damages for breech of contract are not entitled to punitive damages, or damages in excess of actual loss, unless another tort is involved, such as a personal injury lawsuit. So, in certain circumstances where actual damages are insufficient to compensate a client for damages, an attorney will need to pursue damages through supplemental legal action.

Remedies in a contract dispute can include forfeiture of an established business, surrendering existing or future profits, payment of a plaintiff's expenditures, mental or physical suffering, interest, liquidation damages and attorney fees.
