SC Breach of Contract Lawyers
When someone breaches their contract with you or your company, or if it appears that a breach is going to happen, it is critical that you act fast to protect your interests.
Breach of contract actions could arise from vendor agreements, purchase or sale agreements, operating and partnership agreements, or just about any contract that you have entered into personally or on behalf of your company.
If you suspect that the other party will breach their contract, even if it has not yet happened, there are steps that you can take to protect yourself like requesting written assurances, holding the other party in “anticipatory breach” of the contract, or renegotiating contract terms when appropriate.
Personal Injury Lawsuits Against Businesses in SC
Although your business should be covered by insurance and your insurance company will usually provide you with a civil defense to these claims, there may be situations where the insurance company is not looking out for your best interests or insurance does not cover a claim.
If you are not sure if your insurance company will defend a personal injury claim against your business or if you fear the insurance company is protecting their own interests at your expense, call your Myrtle Beach civil litigation attorney immediately to get advice from someone who is on your side.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty in SC
When co-owners, partners, co-members, board members, or others involved in your company’s operations steal from the business or take other actions that are not in the company’s best interest, you may need to take immediate steps to protect your business and the shareholders.
Depending on the circumstances, you may need to notify the board of directors or shareholders, involve law enforcement, ask the court for an injunction to prevent further damage to the business, or sue the guilty party for breach of their fiduciary duties to recover any funds or assets that were lost.
Whether you are collecting an unpaid debt, defending against a lawsuit, or taking steps to protect your business interests from wrongdoing, your business litigation attorney at Axelrod and Associates will help you to navigate SC’s civil court system and help to ensure your company’s success.
