Although contracts are drafted with the purpose of ensuring that the parties to the contract understand their respective rights and obligations, disputes over contracts can still arise. Sometimes a business contract dispute occurs because of an inadequately or poorly drafted contract that fails to clearly explain the parties’ rights and responsibilities or that fails to anticipate all possible events or emergencies, leaving the parties to fight over their respective rights and obligations when things go wrong during a contractual relationship. Of course, many business contract disputes are triggered when someone fails to live up to their agreements and responsibilities under the contract.

New Jersey’s statute of limitations typically requires that a lawsuit arising from a breach of contract be filed within six years of the date that the cause of action accrues (usually, the date that the contract is breached or repudiated). However, contracts involving the sale of goods must be filed within four years of the date that the cause of action accrues. Parties to a contract may also agree to a shorter limitations period on claims arising from or relating to the contract; a business contract disputes attorney from The Epstein Law Firm can review your contract language and the facts of your case to help you determine how long you have to file a lawsuit in your dispute if that should become necessary.

Why do I need an attorney for a business contract dispute?

Although you or your business are certainly free to try to resolve a business contract dispute without legal representation, having an attorney is often the best way to protect your rights and interests.

If I’m in a business dispute, what should I do?

If there’s a significant dispute that’s going to require extensive, complex litigation it will be very expensive. So you’re in what we call a ‘Zero-Sum Game’ where you’re going to pay a lot of money to litigate the case. And therefore you have to take an approach at the beginning of the case as a lawyer: Can or should this case be resolved? And can or should we facilitate an early resolution so that the clients are either receiving money or paying money in an efficient way where they’re not just losing money in litigation that they can’t ultimately get back.


Due to the complexity of our case, most attorneys were not interested. Not only did Michael Epstein take our case, but he was able to manage the situation towards a multi-million dollar settlement that was well in excess of our expectations. They are practical, business-minded attorneys who demonstrated their expertise with every interaction. Michael & his team worked tirelessly & aggressively on our behalf and brought our case to a successful outcome.

Michael Epstein and The Epstein Law Firm recently obtained a multi-million dollar settlement in an extremely complex and difficult financial services case. He and his team not only mastered the complex issues in the case, but also expertly handled all aspects of the negotiations. I cannot thank Michael enough for his dedication and hard work, and I highly recommend him and The Epstein Law Firm for those who need smart, creative, and aggressive lawyers who put their clients’ interests first.
