Business Law Attorney in Amarillo | Lewis Coppedge, P.C.

Business law is also known as corporate law and commercial law. It is the law dealing with transactions, relations, rights, and conduct of people and businesses, including deals, agreements, contracts, sales, trade, and merchandising.

Contract Disputes

Although many contracts are in writing, many perfectly legal contracts are never written. Not surprisingly, contract disputes can arise many ways, and take many shapes and sizes. Contracting parties often disagree on who has fulfilled their contractual obligations, and who has not. A breach of contract often causes a contract dispute. When one party has failed to perform a particular agreement according to the contract, the other contracting party has rights to deal with that breach. Texas law generally allows the prevailing party in a contract case to recover its attorneys’ fees from the other party.
