Trusted Business Litigation Attorneys in Contra Costa County
Whatever civil matter your company is facing, our significant litigation experience will prove invaluable to your case. Our Walnut Creek, CA business litigation lawyers regularly represent our clients in a broad spectrum of general civil litigation issues at both the federal and state levels. Our services include the following:
Breach of Contract Disputes
When a contracted party fails to perform the promises they made, this constitutes a breach of contract. Whether it be a failure to meet the regulatory compliance as required or not following through on a warranty, a breach of contract can be costly to the businesses involved. Categorization of violations generally falls under two categories: material and immaterial. Those considered material typically involve a party not performing duties that are essential to the contract’s primary purpose. When most responsibilities, but not all, have been completed, the breach is considered immaterial. Determining under which category your case falls under will depend on the scope of services agreed upon. Often, however, your legal strategy will be determined by the scope of damages suffered and how much this breach affects your ongoing operations.
Trust a business litigation attorney at the Vanegas Law Group with any matters of this nature. We will review your current contract and explain what obligations still remain, what rights you have in the issue, and how to proceed with or defend against a breach of contract action. We will provide you with practical advice that considers the breached agreement not in a vacuum, but in the context of your ongoing ventures.
Breach of Fiduciary Duty (Derivative Action)
Fiduciaries who engage in behaviors such as concealing materials, self-dealing, or take adverse action against other parties, are considered in breach of their fiduciary duties in California. To successfully litigate this issue involving a California business or contracted party, the following must be shown:
- A fiduciary duty exists, and,
- The duty was breached, and,
- The plaintiff suffered damages due to the breach.
Whether our firm is pursuing damages on your behalf or defending against a fiduciary duty-related suit, these criteria must be met. Because punitive damages are also available in these cases, you should not delay. Please contact our firm right away to begin planning your defense as soon as possible.
ADA Accessibility Case Defense
While it’s legally required to make your business accessible for those with disabilities, it’s also a healthy policy for your business to have. Compliance can be enforced through the Department of Justice or other California advocacy groups, and even by disabled persons. Fortunately, the Vanegas Law Group has seasoned business litigation attorneys who have successfully defended against many ADA accessibility cases both at the state and federal levels.
